    It's a little sharper now. Still not great. The blue feature could be a staircase lock, but if it is it's not one I could find.

    No locks around there, as far as I know. The first step is really to identify the lake in the background.

    Nope, though the Latitude is almost the same.

    The two big candidates are obviously Lac Léman and the Bodensee (or lake Geneva and Constance) but I can't really find anything looking like the pic. The Italian lakes and some of the Swiss lakes have pretty steep shorelines for much of their coast so they don't seem to fit.

    Something tells me this is a view over Lindau to Bodensee, but I haven't found the point of photography.

    Consider from what height this photo must have been taken from and the topography in the Hinterland of Lindau.

    PS: You are getting close, though.

    Given your hint I'd say Bregenz, and googling Aussichtspunkt Bregenz gave me the Gebhardsberg, Fluh and Pfänder. Given the location of the river I'd say it's the Gebhardsberg, but then I didn't see any platform there. Pfänder has a platform, but from google maps it looks kinda different. Gnyaaah, I'll let someone else solve it definitively. As far as I'm concerned Bregenz is where I tank my car and not much else.

    That's right. The Karren is the mountain next to Dornbirn, the neighbouring city of Bregenz, and has an excellent view over the Alpenrhein and the eastern end of the Bodensee.

    thanks for the point lolisuck.



    We're searching for the place the photo was taken from. As a hint (I suspect it's not needed at all, but still) I can give you this: My most recent time (hours!) spent next to the lake were not spent there by choice.

    I'm surprised the previous picture was alpine. It looked a lot flatter. The new one all I can tell is it's probably alpine.

    Correct. View is on the Vierwaldstättersee which I had a fun time staring at whilst in a traffic jam that with very few intermissions lasted the entire length of Switzerland.

    A really curious setting. The mountains and the waterways take me to Yukon but the vegation is no match.

    Well spotted. Here's a closer look at that
