Someone on the CG posted up this beautiful picture, but he hasn't responded to our requests asking where it might be. With all the 'Guess this location' practice that we have here I was wondering if anyone recognised the location? Or is it very clever CGI?

Thanks in advance!

Looks like Middle Earth to me, but I don't think that's a hobbit on the rocks. Somewhere in New Zealand?

Wow, I was just surprised by technology!

I had no idea where this photo was taken, so I just took a picture of my computer screen with my iPhone using the new Google photo search app. Within 10 seconds it identified the photo as Reine, Moskenes, Norway.

I think Google is correct!

Wow Paul, that's amazing....I thought it might be Scandinavia, I tried typing in 'Island Chains, bridges, Norway, Sweden etc etc....but nothing on google.

Following your description it seems to be a place called Lofoten which I think must be part of Reine (found another pic). That google photo search app is amazing!

Thank you so much!

That is a beautiful picture. I love the Middle Earth reference. It seem dead on.

My question is if this is a picture of a fjord that I have always heard so much about? That's kinda how I would imagine it would look.
