Monday Mystery Photo – Brienz and Morocco

Each Monday, I post a mystery photo, or occasionally a mystery object on my blog. I encourage you to leave a comment, if you think you might know where this week’s mystery photo, was taken. If you guess correctly, I will credit you the following week and post a link to your site/blog. Guest contributions are always welcome.

Monday mystery photo July6

 Where in the world would you see the photo above?

Several people attempted a guess and they were all pretty close zeroing in on the western European areas, but it was Tara, from After the rain who was the first to correctly identify last week’s photo, to be somewhere in Switzerland.

Indeed it was the Swiss town of Brienz, and the lake by the same name, located in the Bernese Oberland, or northern-easterly region of Switzerland.  Brienz, which is well-known as the “village of carving” has a long tradition in wood processing and to this day has a school for carving and violin-making.

In addition Drake’s photo from Monday Mystery Photo, posted two weeks ago, was identified correctly by Master of Something as a site in Morocco.



Drake expands on the information about his photo of the Moroccan port city of Rabat, taken in 2011.

The (unfinished) tower is “Hassan Tower.” The building with the green roof is the Mausoleum of Mohammed V.

The sky isn’t blue but grey, the reason is sand storm from Sahara.  Sand from Sahara sometimes could be seen far away, even in Europe: such like Spain and southern France.

Thanks so much Drake from Ledrakenoir, for the submission to Monday Mystery Photo. Some more of Drake‘s photos will appear in coming weeks.

That is Something to Ponder About

I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.

  1. No idea where it is but I do love that church tower! 🙂

    Ah, Rabat. Yes, we would have gone through Rabat on our way to Fes on the train from Casablanca. No wonder it looked familiar!
