Name the place

Can you identify this location?

At the top of every GA email newsletter you'll see a photograph of a mystery location. Just for fun, we're asking you to guess the place and, if you like, chat with other readers about it.

Have you been there? Do you know any interesting facts about it? Can you work out where it is with the help of other readers? Tell us your answers using the comments form below.

There are no prizes for a correct guess, just the satisfaction of being right! We'll reveal the name of the place and the first person to guess correctly here and in the next newsletter.

Last issue's photo is Lake Geneva. Congratulations to Andy Pinks who gave the first correct answer.

Brixham harbour....the camera is facing to the west (setting sun) which fits the aspect of looking towards Brixham from the harbour breakwater. Brixham bay has a NE aspect facing out to sea. .harbour Note also the row of pastel painted houses up on the hill (to the south of the harbour)-characteristic of Brixham.
