Where in the World (265)

If you were fortunate enough to be following @MedCruiseGuide on Twitter then you might well have seen this tweet. Coincidently it was tweeted minutes after Where in the World (264) was posted last Wednesday night.

Posted on Twitter moments after Where in the World (264)

It features the same scene from a different viewpoint but the golden dome is clearly visible in both photographs and is the key to identifying the city even if you did not see the tweet. Of course, if you saw the tweet you already knew that. Both images are of the Bahá’í Gardens which are found in the port city of Haifa, Israel.

Haifa, Israel

Congratulations to Tim (@timofnewbury), Jackie (@JackiesJourneys), Beverley (@bevsackville), and Davide (@travelling_dave) who all identified the city correctly with or without help from the @MedCruiseGuide tweet.

This week the distorted photograph is a rather colourful affair. Although it makes a very attractive distortion it is almost impossible to identify the city. There is a small clue that will narrow the location down to perhaps four or five countries but that is still a lot of cities with no further clues to the identity of the city. It is not a skyline but an iconic illumination.

Do not despair though. Scroll down.

Below you will find another distorted photograph of the same city with a few more clues. Together the two should provide enough clues to identify the city. Good luck.
