Deductions:

we seem to be looking towards the open Sea, maybe across a headland, because there's a windfarm on the horizon, (though I suppose that could be on a marsh behind a container port).

The foreground definitely appears to be bathing beach, possibly on a wide estuary.

The beach huts look vaguely "foreign", as does the sign at the bottom of the steps.

The photo seems to have been taken high up on a ship, close in to the edge of an entrance channel quayheading, maybe a lock.

I think Antaries is on the right track, somewhere along the German/Dutch/French North Sea Coast.

I've been going blind following the coat downwards in Google Earth, looking for a windfarm near a large container port.... :roll:

Got to go along with Strowies thinking here.....

If it isnt ZeeBee Like David said,

I would guess first Le Havre. Or Dunkirk.

But maybe even Europort from the South....Near the FKK beach (you naughty boy you :naughty::naughty: )

I agree with David, 'cos from the land the mole on the left and the wind-turbines on the right-hand mole would fit in well.

I've flown over Zeebrugge, Le Havre and Dunkirk many times in my Google reconnaissance plane and can't spot anywhere with that layout of features.

The ship-sized quay in the left foreground with the bathing beach and the wind farm in the distance beyond the container berths don't seem to fit anywhere....

A lot of Google earth is quite old Stowie, and wind farms go up faster than sunflowers so maybe a bit misleading looking for one on and oldish shot.

No argument with the age of Google Earth overheads, they still show a my garden from over 5 years ago !

I'd concentrated mostly on the orientation of the quay with the beach and the container port with no other buildings visible, which implied a peninsular with a canal type ship access channel in the Southern corner, (assuming the eastern coastline of the North Sea).

I guess that may be complicated by the fact that the German/Dutch/French coastline has numerous wide deltas rather than a straight coastline like most of ours.

For all those interested it is Zeebruge taken from the 5th floor hotel balcony overlooking the beach and port, I will post some more pics of the test later. :trophy

As much as I enjoy coconut David, I always find it very chewy.

You could go for a better prize methinks :naughty:
