What a marvellous picture. (I love these and look forward to them.) Do you know where this was taken please?

Actually, I do not know. We'll have to ask scarlettina. My first guesses would be either Seattle or NYC, based on where I know she hangs out, but I don't recognize the buildings in the skyline.

Thank you! I'd just come back to follow this up and I saw you had already done so.

Keyword:Seattle Space Needle
The picture was taken in West Seattle looking east toward the Seattle skyline. The tallest skyscraper in the photo (the one that looks like it has a tiny pyramid on top) is the Washington Mutual Tower (though with WaMu's passing, it may be called something else now or in the near future). Short and stubby, sitting to its right, is what the locals call the Ban Roll-on building (though I'm sure it has a proper name, too).

Glad you like the photo!

Wow, that was fast! Thank you - Seattle's obviously got some really lovely places. (As a Brit, I know very little about it.)

And it's a terrific picture. That bird looks so smug. On top of the world!
