Great Shot. I like the different layers of mountains in the background and the shadow-show silhouettes in the small boat. That's funny because I have posted a very similar picture today...

Hi Everyone,
I totally I agree with the responses to this tremendous photo! In fact, this will make a great subject for BetterPhoto's "Where in the World" quiz.

Scott and I will be checking into this photo-discussion thread from time to time to see how things are going. Eventually, after the guesses are all in, we will report back with the correct answer.

Meantime, have fun posting your guesses here.


Kerry Drager,

Very beautiful image,Scott! It looks like it might have been captured in Xingping in China?? #3531125

I agree, beautiful image. Looks like Phang Na Bay, in Thailand, near Phuket. I've been there several times and unfortunately it was rainy season and didn't get such wonderful results. #3531462

Upon closer inspection, I'd like to resubmit my guess. The out-croppings in Phang Na Bay are less dense. It does remind me of another place I've visited in Vietnam called Halong Bay. #3531537

It looks like Seward Bay, in Seward, AK to me.

If it's not, I wish it were and I was there again :)

Interesting that Kenneth W. thought that it was maybe set in Alaska. I first thought of that also, as I spent 25 years in Valdez and other Alaskan towns. I have pictures I have taken myself that look something like this. Then I looked at the boat, and thought that it may be set in the Hood Canal area, or even slightly to the east in Puget Sound. That boat (small as it is) reminds me of the river boats that are used around here (I live over at the coast west of these locations). #3532540

Was this taken on the Li River near Guilin in China? Great capture! #3532613

Diana L. Ralph November 01, 2006

Was this the Yantzee River in China? #3533447

My first impression of this photo was China. Nice capture #3533500

Scott Stulberg November 01, 2006

Hmmmmm..... someone may be close....but my lips are sealed....... uncle scotty #3533528

Steven Irwin November 01, 2006

Looks like the Yangtze river in China to me! Beautiful colors! #3533605

November 01, 2006

I'm thinking the Yangze River also.
Great Photo.

Wherever it turns out to be, I want to go there!!! #3533644

Diana L. Ralph November 01, 2006

Do you want a more specific guess? Is this looking toward the Xiling Gorge or the Wu Gorge? #3533837

Sherrye Nozaki November 01, 2006

Is it the Philippines or Vietnam?

Outstanding shot by the way:) #3534757

Scott Stulberg December 04, 2006
