I found these six landmarks in the image that lined up nicely with each other:
Then I created a map where I found roughly the coordinates of these landmarks, and drew lines straight through them:
As you can see, these three lines intersect nicely at a single point (at approximately 49.746°N 123.056°W, marked in yellow), which should be approximately the ...
Santa Monica California. I googled the name on the bottom left of the image and came across this post. The post says Malibu, but I think Malibu is further up the coast.
For some reason, I can't find the name of the road on google maps, so had to resort to using bing...
Very close to Santa Monica pier.
The view is looking north, overlooking the Pacific ...
Well tineye.com got a few hits but nothing to solve the problem...
But Google Image Search using your photo as the search parameter was more helpful.
One of the many hits was to a blog called The Sticky Egg, specifically the post from November 13 2011 called "Feeling Bookish", which includes an address:
De Batavier in Lootstraat [sic], Amsterdam.
Yep, it's real. This wiki article corresponds with the information you have, and searching the island name itself pulls up lots of information about the destination in mind for you: Vaadhoo (Raa Atoll)
Vaadhoo island is famous for the 'sea of stars.' This marine
bioluminescence is generated by phytoplankton known as
dinoflagellates. Woodland Hastings ...
OK, It's called the Hite Crossing Bridge, and a Street View shot is available at this link that best matches the angle you have. It confused me for a bit as yours is using a long lens, but you can 'walk' down the hill and confirm it's all the same rocks, and in your shot you can just make out the Hite Bridge in the background, which is certainly the one at ...
It is the Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest, Romania (some more photos).
As to whether it's the biggest building in the world, Wikipedia says:
According to the World Records Academy, the Palace is the world's
largest civilian building, most expensive administrative building, and
But see also the list of largest buildings in ...
As near as I can tell, it's taken from about here (note that the perspective is different in Google maps to the photo - presumably imitating a different width lens) :
Which would appear to be the view from roughly Round Mountain, looking SW over Squamish.
Google Maps is a bit fiddly, but you can use your mouse to move around in 3D.
It's hike-able, and is ...
I also find it incredibly difficult to search for a lot of things in Japan, especially in English on Google. Having the exact Japanese name and address makes things easier.
This tower is actually not a "Castle" but rather a "castle style tower". It is an observation/look-out tower.
Here is the address:
〒981-0213 Miyagi-ken, Miyagi-gun, ...
That is the Teatro Fausto, on the corner of Prado and Colon, in Havana Cuba. The "ants" you see in the photo were an artist's exhibit in 2012 for the Havana Biennial. They are no longer on the building.
The correct address is the one in Patra. The other one in Athens is most probably a mistake on Google Maps. Here is my reasoning:
The address is basically the same - EO stands for Ethniki Odos, and the road from Patra to Korinthos is the same as the one from Athens to Korinthos
Palea Ethniki Odos means Old National Road
26500 is the postcode of Rio
Rio is a ...
Clicking "show more" below the video you will read:
The Performance of Russian guitarist Estas Tonne at the Buskers Festival Stadtspektakel in Landshut in September 2011 in the Old Town with "The Song of the Golden Dragon"..
The shoe store "Lipp" and the Commerzbank in the video give away the precise address: Altstadt 76, Landshut, Germany.
Here is a ...
It is not Switzerland, as the page you are linking to claims, but the picture is from Berchtesgaden in Germany. The largest peak in the background to the right is the Watzmann.
At least most of it. There has been done some really strange manipulations of the image and I am not 100% sure if it is not at least partially a collage put together from different ...
It's the Fausto Theater, as identified on this photo blog.
More information on the history of the theatre found on cinematreasures.org.
Located in the Habana Vieja (old town) district of Havana, on the
Prado at the corner of Esquina Colon in the Jaruco neighborhood.
The Cine-Teatro Fausto was built in 1938 and designed in an Art Deco
style, by ...
We can confirm that this stunning view belongs to Milk River, near the border of Alberta and Montana. Paying a visit to Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park will provide you access to the river and the hundreds of Sandstone Hoodoos located in this impressive region of Canada.

You're only off by a couple hundred meters.
The problem is that the available satellite imagery is not very detailed, not sufficiently to make an object this small (when viewed from above) clearly visible. From above an object of this size is not quite as wide as a lorry, and perhaps as long. So, as we can see from the satellite image, which does capture ...
Google Maps places the pension slightly differently than the buildings you located. This appears to be the route on Google Maps.
Google Maps satellite photo also seems to match the pictures found under this link about a festival that took place at the pension. You can see a garden and solar panels in the pictures that seem to also be visible in the ...
Visit Norway identifies it as the Gloppedalsura scree:
Gloppedalsura consists of avalanche boulders that are piled on top of an end moraine.
10,000 years ago the ice sheet that covered the area, melted away. For a period of time the massive end moraine dammed the Hunnedal river's former course, towards Veen and Vikeså, and formed a lake in ...
Looks like it is on Istiklal Avenue, one of Istanbul's most famous streets that starts from Taksim Square and goes towards the Galata tower. The exact place seems to be in front of a restaurant called Köfteci Ramiz. Google maps to the correct place
You won't likely see much on the beach though sometimes storms expose parts of cables, which may or may not be in use.
Much of the heavy communications infrastructure in Cornwall is hidden underground and in nondescript industrial buildings, bungalow-like buildings, down small roads that claim to lead to farms and such like. Partly security through ...
It seems they will come back, but when and where is still unknown. From local news site AT5 (December 3rd):
Ze worden opgeknapt en daarna zullen ze rondreizen door de stad. Welke plekken ze zullen aandoen, is nog niet bekend.
They will be restored and then they will travel around the city. The places they will visit are not yet known.
It is likely you are thinking of El club La Terrrazza (note the 3 'r's). You go up a hill through a quaint village with twisty sort of small streets to get there.
It's a converted villa rather than a cathedral, and the 'roof' you wrote about is most likely their balcony. The club opened in 1995 so meets your dating criteria of October 2000. Also, it has ...
According to this PDF document from the official site of the hall of Bacau the new name of the Filimon Sirbu street is GEORGE BACOVIA.
I do not speak Romanian, but google translate says that "Denumire veche" means "old name". Also, it seems that this street had a few other old names beside Filimon Sirbu: "Gimnaziu", "Regina Maria" and "Calea Moinesti".
The town you're looking for seems to be Leh in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir quite in the north of India. Leh seems to be the common name, but in Tibetian it is written like that: གླེ.
The picture you have mentioned in the question could be either from the Shey Monastery or similar monasteries such as Thiksey, or the Leh Palace. However, all of them ...
