That is an awesome photo.

I always liked the Blackbird, ever since it came to Farnborough Air show
in the 70's. Just looked the part.

Unless lomapaseo does the decent thing and tells us.
No problems

it's Parker ranch in Hawaii. just google that to see what its all about and the images. My pic was taken from the garden on the left side

Just a separate comment

I was in this thread when it started years ago and we seemed to have morphed quite a bit over the years without any kind of fixed rules. Lately we have been on a kick demanding instant gratification without any rules to standardize this.

This is unfair to newbies and impolite to others who try to keep the thread from dissolving into a clique.

Yes, the thread has morphed again into something a bit more fast paced
but people log on specifically to play it for a few hours. IMHO, far better
than posting a reply and waiting a week like in the past.

No cliques, everyone welcome (as is shown by the "welcome's" people
give when a newbie joins in), just a few of us who try to keep the
thread moving along.

I suggested we split it in to two threads, old style WoE and New style WoE
but forum members didn't want to do that.

loma,

Parker ranch in Hawaii
Thanks - but not a lot.

Don't play this sort of trick again - there's a good chap.

Here comes one. There are plenty of clues. It is a volcano, the top can be seen just above the clouds.

I am not going to answer questions about which continent, at least not for awhile. It is obviously not in Africa and hardly in South America either. Neither am I going to answer guesses about the country.

I just don't find it fair if someone can just ask his way towards it when somebody else might be doing some actual research.

No, methinks this thread is all about someone's ego.

Nobody ever had any complaints until someone recently joined.

Hey ho!

Life is very short
And there's no time
For fussing and fighting, my friend

I have always thought
That it's a crime
So I will ask you once again

Try to see it my way
Only time will tell
If I am right or I am wrong

Strewth! I wasn't expecting that. I thought it looked a pretty desolate place so had a look a the Kamchatka peninsula and it looked like a match.
I'm not in a position to post anything at the moment, so I'm declaring

OH

Uffers
