The Next Quillifer Contest

by wjw on November 4, 2017

IMGP7585So . . . where am I  now?

Identify this location, and win a free audio book of Quillifer.

I’m calling off the previous contest before we go through all 700 of the world’s stratovolcanoes.  The picture was of Mt Ngaurohoe in New Zealand, which stood in for Mt. Doom in the Lord of the Rings movie.  Thus I would have accepted Ngaurohoe, Mt. Doom, Orodruin, Amon Amarth, or any other of Tolkien’s names for the place.

Maybe I was hoping you’d all recognize it from the movie.

Anyway, maybe this photo is of a more singular location.  There aren’t 700 of them, anyway.

Wait a minute. Is this my back yard? That giant frog sure looks familiar.

Google Image Lookup says France.
Nantes, specifically.
Les machines de l ile.

Tomar wins! We’re with Les Machines de l’Ile.

Though I don’t know how Google knew. I’d never put this photo online, or identified its location.

Dang. Are you SURE this isn’t my back yard? That frog, man. I don’t know…it’s spooky.

Is the mannequin crawling out of the hole supposed to represent that Chilean mining disaster/rescue from 2010? That would have been my guess if SOMEONE hadn’t spilled les legumes so early.

Also, why no vacation photos of Olympus Mons? You’re supposed to be a sci-fi author. . . .
