Hello Andreas, 

 

1 place that is close to Canada is the State of Washington.

 

Might this be a photo of somewhere within the State of Washington?

Best Regards,

 

Michael

No, quite far away from Washington State.

The writer Gertrude Stein once asked, which camera Henri Cartier Bresson had used for some photos that she admired. He replied: "By the way, my dear, I recently read your latest book which I liked exceptionally well. Now could you tell me please what kind of typewriter did you use?"

Hello Andreas,

 

Is Canada the string of lights on the other side of the Water?

Best Regards,

 

Michael

Hello Andreas,

 

That's strange.

 

I always thought that Canada was bigger.

 

Best Regards,

 

Michael

As Michael gave a lot of hints maybe somebody wants to finish?

Yes Stuart, you turn!


The picture was taken from the top of a hotel on the US side, the big building on the other side is the Sheraton in Canada, just slightly right of the picture, where you see the strong lights is the Rainbow Bridge to Canada.

This is a more familiar view:

The current lights at the falls, installed in 2016, are high powered LEDs.  In the 1970s my father designed the prior lighting, which replaced the original carbon arc lamps on the Queen Victoria Building with 23 10,000 watt xenon lamps, plus another up river backlighting the plume, and one in the gorge shooting up at the plume.  There was also a Klieg spotlight.  Each of the xenon lamps was brighter than all 16 of the old carbon arc lamps combined.

 

Here's the new one:

There are sizable bridges in this city but I think that's not very significant.  If necessary I'll add another view tomorrow evening.

On a cosmic scale it's abutting NYC, but on a planetary scale it's on a different continent.

Is the company name on the building in the first photo Chinese?

Hello Stuart,

 

If we are on a different Continent than New York City: Could we be somewhere in Scandinavia?

Best Regards,

Well, we've determined that it is far west of New York City, and flying there directly from NY one goes the polar route.
