Hi Jim,
What a beautiful scene! This image is a "natural" for BetterPhoto's "Where in the World?" quiz (June issue of BetterPhoto's PhotoFlash newsletter, which will be published on Thursday June 8th).
Thanks,
Kerry

It looks like the U.S.A. West coast either southern Oregon or more likely the California shoreline around Carmel-by-the-Sea and Carmel Highlands. Very nice shot, though!

Point Lobos. The most beautiful meeting of sea and land according to Ansel Adams.

This photo looks like it was taken in Seaside, Oregon. The rock formations at HUG POINT, Cannon Beach.

If it isn't the Atlantic coast of Cornwall,UK, then it should be!

By the look of the trees in the background I'd say it's somewhere on the southern coast of New Zealand, possibly Fiordland.

Looking at this photo again, I was wondering if this is somewhere in Alaska. I believe, I see a "seal" in the left side in the water (it could also be just a rock..LOL), the water is icy blue, which would be another indication of a very cold area.

It could also be somewhere along the East coast of Australia, I have seen rock formations like these in a few places.

It looks similar to an area on the north shore of Kauai.

This is really funny. Obviously there are rocks like this at just about any place where the land meets the ocean! :-)

Oregon coast or perhaps N. California, but definitely the Pacific coast of NA.

I believe this is from Maine, my guess would be from the Acadia Park or Northward along the coast from there. Can't wait to see the answer!

Hi All,
Excellent guesses! For everyone who guessed California's Central Coast, you're right. Specifically, it's Pebble Beach.

Thanks, everyone, for your participation in the "Where in the World?" quiz ... and again, Jim, an awesome photo!
