I have a feeling it is somewhere in Italy. I am not sure - that or either somewhere in Europe. It is a great pic.

This past summer my granddaughter went to spain. She brought back a picture that looks a lot like this one. I think it is in Spain.

Hi Bob (and everybody) -

When you answer the question, there is a checkbox that says "If you would like to be notified when someone responds to this thread, check this box." Since you left that checked, you are getting notified when others try to answer. I have changed your notification status, Bob, so this won't happen again.

By the way, 1 and 1/3 of the above answers are getting very warm but I am hoping for a more specific answer. The correct answer will be posted in the next PhotoFlash.

May the best travel photographer win ;^)

Thanks for telling me about the check mark.I didn't do it this time. My second guess is Geneva, Switzerland

my last guess is stein am rhein/switzerland.

I have a feeling it is somewhere in the French Countryside. Not sure exactly what town though.

That's very cute. I know I'm being a slave driver. And you are very close, by the way.

I think Snappy is in Switzerland and the town could be "Murten"(Morat in French)in the canton of Fribourg. If it is not then Murten is a nice little place to vistit anyhow.

Well, on the other hand, if Michael M. is close and it is in or near Berne, could Snappy" be in the township of "Burgdorf"?

Wow - many of you were getting very warm this time. I know it was an especially hard one.

The correct country was Switzerland. That brought many of you into the running. Namely, John S. was first to guess a "Swiss village." Then Bob W., Charlie F. Kohn, Jim D., Michael M., and Celia gave even more specific answers.

The correct village, however, was Zug, a small town between Zurich and Luzern. No one got that right but I'd say that Celia and Charlie came in with a close tie. Zug is right in between Celia's last answer of Burgdorf and Charlie's last answer of St. Gallen (and Stein am Rhein for that matter). Good job, guys.

Thanks for all your great answers! The model, by the way, is Dudo Erny - one of BetterPhoto's supporting advertisers. His site - - is well worth a visit.

I promise the next one won't be so hard :)
