Oregon Coast. Cannon Beach, perhaps? Great shot! #2727486

Sheila Grobelny 5/5/2006 5:45:48 AM

Has to be one of the islands in Hawaii, my guess is Kuawi?

Taken from near Cayucos, California, looking south past Morro Canyons and Atascadero State Beach to Morro Rock. #2727758

Barbara A. Ford 5/5/2006 6:41:34 AM

Hawaii, looks like solidified Lava flows. #2727772

Priss 5/5/2006 6:53:22 AM

I think it is the Hecta Head OR Three Arches area of the Oregon Coastline. #2727803

hilda goertzen 5/5/2006 7:07:17 AM

To me it looks like it could be Harrison Hot Springs, British Columbia, Canada #2727837

Sharon F. Morris 5/5/2006 7:15:44 AM

I am going to guess Maui. #2727862

Jim Gerkin 5/5/2006 7:24:09 AM

I painted a picture much like this. It was from Ireland. Maybe this is too. Very relaxing photo! #2727876

Marcus Anderholm 5/5/2006 7:29:03 AM

Looks like the California coast to me just north of Bodega Bay. Great Photo! #2727887

Marta Azevedo 5/5/2006 7:31:27 AM

there is place similar to this in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. #2727890

Pat Beckley 5/5/2006 7:35:00 AM

This was my clue. #2727904

Pat Beckley 5/5/2006 7:39:06 AM

Whoops didn't get the photo in. I'm new to this stuff.

Patricia Hulsey 5/5/2006 7:56:50 AM

Looks like a view of the California Pacific Cost Highway. very much like th fog. #2728028

Joyce A. Meck 5/5/2006 8:48:13 AM

My guess is somewhere in the Hawaiian chain - probably Kuaui...Great photo!! (great camera - I have the same..) #2728216

Barbara Rosner 5/5/2006 9:02:09 AM

I'd guess the Na Pali coast of Kuaui. #2728259

Andrew JM Davies 5/5/2006 2:47:04 PM

The west coast of Ireland. #2729478

Steve Cox 5/6/2006 6:30:16 AM

Pfeiffer Beach Area of Big Sur... Near "the eye"... gotta be there! The attached photo is a set up shot for an all day shoot I did at Pfeiffer Beach; it's the wrong angle but you can see the notch on the side of the hill looks like a perfect match. #2731445

JILL M. POTTER 5/7/2006 12:07:05 PM

When I saw this wonderful photo it brought back memories of Big Sur! I don't live on that coast anymore but I remember its beauty! #2735017

Robert F. Wilson 5/8/2006 8:09:51 PM

I am thinking north of the Golden Gate by Sausalito . The clouds from the ocean come over the mountains that is between the ocean and the city of Sausalito. #2740481

Geraldine E. Lefoe 5/11/2006 4:52:33 PM

And just to add a completely left field one - Lugano Switzerland also looks like this!
cheers Gerry #2753188

David N. Lindberg 5/24/2006 9:33:18 PM

So, are you going to tell us if we're even close? #2812043

Jim Miotke 5/24/2006 10:33:18 PM

Wow! So many fantastic guesses! And the correct answer is....

Big Sur!

Great guesses, everyone! And isn't it neat that they really were all over the world map ... but those of you who said Big Sur (California coast), you are correct!

Thanks so much in taking part in this fun quiz. I enjoyed checking out all of the excellent guesses... so many beautiful coastal scenes! #2812135
