Guess the location (a new game)


#3872

Tick, obviously…
Fantastic city… would love to go back one of these days…

No I haven’t seen the movie - I’ll look out for it.


#3873

It was the longest running foreign film at the Christchurch Arts centre.

#3874

At work so sorry if I don’t reply quickly


#3875

That’s The Theatre Royal in Castlemaine.


#3876

That certainly is. :+1:


#3877

K then.
Where the hell is this -


#3878

Tongariro crossing ?


#3879

Yep. It’s like a game of tennis in here today!
High point of Tongariro Crossing below Mt Ngauruhoe (AKA Mt Doom)…


#3880

Great city.


#3881

Great photo!

Wild stabs:
Berlin?
Chicago?


#3882

Chicago.
Great city for photography.
Your up @BAAKKEERRRR :wink:


#3883

OK, this one’s not particularly scenic… but the contents are very specific to where it was taken (I’ll point out that this is not my photo - though I do have one identical to it…)


#3884

Having done that trip numerous times I’m very confident its the Shanghai Maglev from the airport


#3885

Absolutely.

Travelling at 431 km/h is quite spectacular. Our group of 20-odd was challenged by our tourguide on the to & from journeys to try and get a photo of the opposite-bound train (the boom of which you can hear approaching for a good 5-ish seconds beforehand) at the track midpoint. Even with burst mode, only one of us managed it and even then only a tiny bit of it was visible in the shot.


#3886

Quick one


#3887

Part of the India/Pakistan border?


#3888

I think @BAAKKEERRRR has it.

Is it the flag lowering ceremony?


#3889

Wait for confirmation or otherwise, but I’m out of photos (and/or inspiration) - someone else is welcome to have a crack…


#3890

Yes the border crossing at Wahga-Attari.
About 30km outside of Amritsar and about the same to Lahore
Both countries have built stadiums so people can watch the changing of the guard.
Was a little unnerving for Mrs Ace as both sets of crowds taunt each other across the fence and it gets quite willing.


#3891

One more from me then.

Big part of out history this one.
