    Hi Jim,
What an intriguing scene! I think it would make a perfect selection for the "Where in the World?" feature in the monthly PhotoFlash newsletter (due to be published on Oct. 7th - the first day of school).

Hi Everyone,
Enjoy guessing where Jim captured this scene. We'll check in from time to time over the coming days ... so keep guessing! :-)

Thanks,
Kerry

It seems to be the Hill of Crosses (Cross hill) in Lithuania (near Siauliai).

It always surprises me when BP members know the most obscure and unusual places. Yes, it's the Hill of Crosses in Lithuania.

James -- no one knows the origin of this place, but it is thought to have started in 1831 after some kind of uprising.
