This Picture was taken on one of our lengthy cruises. It was a beautiful place and I have several pictures I took while there.

See if you can give us the exact location in the world where this may be. If you do not know take a guess. Have fun.

This will be the last for 2009. I will give the answer next year.

Lisa, that was my first thought too, but the Opera House has no green around the building, its build on the end of a pier, and I cant remember seen trees while I was there. See the picture.

Wow, that's a good one Ray, it reminds me of the Montreal Olympic Stadium gone mad.... I have no idea what or where it is, but I'll be interested to find out!
Glad you keep us all guessing Ray!

I'll make a guess W.M. Keck Observatory on the summit of Mauna Kea Island of Hawai'i. I'm probably way off, but it looks like a telescope should come out of it. Those are tropical plants, looks like a Bird of Paradise and a plumeria. Great picture Ray.

Tenerife is in the Canary Islands. The building looks like a giant claw, but was intended to be a tidal wave.

here is a link to an official website

Wiith the link that Capt gave that gave the answer. It was in Santa Cruz on the Island of Tenerife in Canary Islands.

We were cruising om NCL Crown at the time we were there.
