Nice thread idea...makes you all the more aware of what a beautiful and diverse world we are blessed to live in...and as someone who is not a huge fan of travelling, other than on foot and bicycle, I do enjoy being offered a window into the less talked about places...

My city, York...













Cheers Kilgore, saved me a job there.
Certainly not the most cherry picked pics you could have used either (no pics of Constantine!).

To be fair, it's better than Nelson! Plus, you can get takeaway for a couple of quid (the mrs has a brother living there).

Still wouldn't want to live there though!..............

This is right outside my front door. A few weeks ago we had a good snow..which is rare.








I am from southern Illinois. Some of the pics from over seas are very lovely...I wish we could all trade places for a while

Aaah Constantine.........

Cheers again Kilgore. Good to know there is someone to rescue me from my technophobe nightmare on a thread such as this. And no, instructions are no good to me - when it comes to computers, they appear to be written in Klingon!

Ohio, USA, between Cleveland and Akron...my city is the average suburban town, nothing impressive to show you, but we are lucky to live very near the Cuyahoga Valley National Park...








..and right in the middle of it, the Blossom Music Center...




Peace!

I actually don't recognize that area. Are you from Southeastern Illinois or just pretty far south? I live about 30-40 minutes from St. Louis.

Ooh Ooh (desperately waving his hand)... Trade with me. That place looks like pure heaven, i could spend a lifetime wandering around there and never get fed up.

You people in the US are blessed
You have in my opinion the most beautiful country on this fine earth- such rich diversity.

Sure, we all know that parts of Europe or indeed anywhere are beautiful, but the grass is always greener ya know?

Lol. You're right to a degree but having spent most of my life living in both Scotland and Ireland (Cork- The Rebel County), I can tell you that they mostly respect and back each other up, but when the subject changes to football then all bets are off and sleeves rolled up

I am from Marion, Illinois. It's were IL57 meets IL24. I think STL is about 121 miles from here..could be a bit more..it takes us about an hour and a half to get to the river. We go up to Trader Joes and shopping every few months..that ride is BORING! So flat. We are right where the flatness meets the hills and rocks.

You are seeing the area of
Shawnee Forest
Garden of the Gods
Ferne Clyff
Dixon State Park/rec area
Bell Smith Springs...(which is just BEAUTIFUL) it is a hidden treasure..a natural spring and the water is so clear.

So, I had to contribute to this positive thread. I have to admit, this is a good idea! To answer your question:



Georgia coast sure is a beauty at sunset.



And, although this is half way around the world: Kawasan Falls, Philippines. Looks like I've got the best of both worlds.

You should go to Cebu Philippines next time! It's not so crowded there, the people are friendly, and the beaches are really nice.

I was hoping you'd bring those beautiful pictures!!!

Stumped....
You know it's bad when you look on Google images and can't find one nice picture.
Million and one pictures of ruddy Staffordshire bull terriers though. Youtube will have to do...

This is the kind bit...And to be fair for most of us this is only a quick bus or 10 minutes in the car away. For the main hub of civilisation around here it's pretty grim though.

A Briiliant Idea Smylee !!!! S&F


I will most certainly keep an eye on this one, some of the pictures shared are totally awesome !!!

Hope to see much much more members contributing on this thread. Here's my part of the world:

==========

Where I work, most of the time, Montreal, Quebec:




Here's another shot, from an angle showing the Olympic Stadium where we hosted the 1976 Games:




For anyone visiting Montreal, the Old Montreal (Le Vieux Montreal) is a must:





A highly visited spot:


You’ll also catch sight of the Notre-Dame Basilica, a neo-Gothic church built in 1829 and inspired by the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. This church is one of Montreal’s most popular attractions.




More about the Old Montreal Here.

==========

Where I live, in a small town near the St-Louis Lake, on the South Shore of Montreal:




Where I spend a little bit of my time off, in a natural habitat protected area called Pointe du Buisson:




Where I spend most of my time off, an eight kilometers island - a protected natural habitat as well - called St-Bernard Island:




From deers to foxes to turtles to over two hundred and fifty various bird, this is what I see, everytime I go there:






Finally, this is a picture of me, taken last summer, on the North end of the Island. We can see a bit of Montreal in the background:




And before anyone asks, that chinese tattoo means "Passion".
