I have gone back and edited the first post to show the relaxed conditions, but I still think we should stick to the UK so I have not changed that requirement.
Thanks, @ColinJ, but my reason for highlighing in the UK was that the scene in my picture is...in the UK!
I'll say that the mountain outline makes it the Mountains of Mourne in Northern Ireland, going by stock images such as this:
As for the exact location, I'm going to guess at the approach to Dundrum, and possibly here (from google maps)
- it could well be the same house, but some of the angles and the size of the mountains look wrong - maybe different types of lens between your photo and google maps?
It took a lot of googling of east coasts to get this far.
I believe that is a bullseye! I agree, it's difficult to get a perspective that looks identical, perhaps due to different focal lengths. Those new trees on the left don't help either. But that's definitely where I was.
Riding the Mourne coast road - Where the mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea - is unforgettable.
Anyway, congratulations. Over to you...
Where am I?
Yes - I cheated and spotted that!
Yes but I don't feel I can give the point for narrowing it down to a Wales-sized area. A bit more precision please gentlemen!
You are at the Bwlch Oerddws car park, on the A470 between Dinas Mawddwy and Dolgellau, looking North-West. So it's morning!
The Wales clue was pretty helpful. It looks like a pass and the road looks like an A road, leaving only a handful of possibilities. It's a road I've not ridden. Although I've cycled a lot in Wales, I don't think I've been north of the Severn on a bike, or if I have, only just.
I have one more suitable piture if you're all interested. After that I think I'm probably out.
Well done, spot on!
I had ridden up from the Dinas Mawddwy (eastern) side the previous evening and camped behind a wall just out of sight of the picture, and carried on towards Dolgellau (west, behind me in the photo) after the picture was taken.
This one is on the mainland of Great Britain - no offshore foray this time. Also, one clue I will give is that my elevation is over 500 metres, having ridden up the road you can see disappearing down the valley.
Are we in the Peak District?
I was thinking maybe South Wales, or Scottish borders? Thought I had it at one point but the curve of the road up that long valley is wrong. It looks like a B- if not an A-road.
Good thinking. It is Wales, and it's an A-road.
