Good Evening All

I obviously would like to know where the scene is set but more importantly, what specifically are we looking at?

More river bank than coast?

Henley? click here

  Brumas 21:26 01 Aug 2008

Good evening, closer magnification on the original doesn't help much, however that is not what I am looking for ;o)

  Legolas 21:27 01 Aug 2008

It looks something like ESTER but I'm not sure

  Legolas 21:37 01 Aug 2008

My chain of thought also. Apart from the obscured hotel name I haven't a clue.

I am going for a wild guess inspired by Fruit Bat /\0/\'s input...The Oxford/Cambridge boat race on the Thames?

  Brumas 21:39 01 Aug 2008

It probably would - I am just being devious ;o0

  Woolwell 21:40 01 Aug 2008

It's tidal. Possibly Cowes IOW click here

  Woolwell 21:41 01 Aug 2008

Cowes Regatta?

  Macscouse 21:44 01 Aug 2008

Could be an estuary. The jetty in the foreground has a set of gates to hold back the passengers for the ferry or cruise round the bay, maybe.

I agree with Woolwell, Cowes, the small buildings on the left look like the ones on Victoria pier click here

Good evening Brumas and fellow competitors... This looks a bit like New Brighton but the river is not wide enough.

The hat on one of those youngsters (bottom right) looks big enough though.

Perhaps the number of flags around the hotel signifies something. Maybe a visit by someone of importance, or perhaps it has recently opened.

It looks a nice place though, doesn't it?
