2 hours, 4 minutes and the first guess got it. Very good! And, yes, you get the extra credit!

Now, it's your turn.

I should have excused myself, I dated a woman from Rhinelander once in college.

Trying to figure how to upload something without the title...

Save the full-size image to your desktop and call it whatever you want. Then go to "advanced" under the reply field, and upload the file as an attachment from your desktop..

Or, just pick an image from Google Images, post it and put whatever title you want underneath it. Just be sure the "properties" doesn't indentify the name or location of what you're posting. (I WILL check! LOL)

My hint is my user name has something to do with my profession, and I occasionally work nearby...

Ok, you work in the oil patch. Your profile says you've worked in Minnesota, Houston, Chicago and Oklahoma. And, you say you've worked "nearby" to the picture posted.

The trees in the background look to be northern latitude trees and the birds are probably Pelican's, but not the Brown Pelicans found along the Gulf Coast.

So, that eliminates Houston, Chicago and most likely, Oklahoma too. But, there are no oil fields in Minnesota that I know of. However, North Dakota is "nearby," depending upon your definition of the term, and northern Pelican's DO winter at Chase Lake, ND.

So, my first guess is just that....Chase Lake, ND.

They are White Pelicans, but that only places it west of the Mississippi, where they are widespread, and because they;re migratory, can be anywhere from the Rio Grande to northern Saskatchewan, depending on the season. Best clue is the fast-flowing current without any mountains in the background, and unbroken coniferous forest. It would be hard to find such a forest in ND, where pelicans are ubiquitous in summer. Pelicans usually prefer shallow lakes and ponds---their fishing strategy doesn't work well in swift water. I would be inclined to think either N Minnesota boundary waters or E Washington. If you've narrowed down where he worked, go with Northern Minnesota.
