That hexagonal basalt is very distinctive! Very few other places it could've been - the same outcrop on Staffa is about the only other I can think of in NW Europe (Iceland probably has some, but doesn't have Grey Wags)

Yes for Washington DC, but there is no Great Blue Heron. Actually there are two birds to find on the picture

Reviving this thread again. I guess I don't go to enough famous locations!

A tough crop I think but someone may get it. If not, I'll reveal more.

Not sure about the bird, but is that the Statue of Liberty in the background?
