Today’s Quiz: What is The Location of This iPhone Photo?

What is the location of this iPhone photo?

What is the location of this iPhone photo?

UPDATE, 1:05 pm: That didn’t take long. Rich is our winner today. He is a photographer in Colorado. I was facing generally north taking pictures of El Capitan (with a better camera than my iPhone). I was standing in El Capitan Meadow (just south of Northside Drive) in Yosemite Valley, Yosemite National Park, California.

Where was I when I took this photo? Today’s quiz is being run simultaneously on my photography blog and my Facebook photography page. The winner will be determined by the time stamp of the comments as I receive them on my Facebook photography page (you must be logged in to Facebook to see my photography page).

The Winner

The winner must provide all five items on this list:

1. The state (in the United States).

2. The well know “area” in the state.

3. The name of the specific area where I was standing.

4. The direction I was facing.

5. The famous icon I was photographing.

Post your answers here.


Everything you need to know to figure out the location where I took this photo is “in” this photo as it is posted here on my photography blog. You will not have everything you need to know from the photo as it is posted on Facebook thanks to what Facebook does to posted photos.

This photo was taken at night which explains why it was too dark for the iPhone to pick up much of anything except a headlight.

You will have an advantage if you have been reading my current series of blog articles. The most recent post in the series was yesterday.
