  1. It’s Restoration Island, in Queensland, Australia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Restoration_Island_National_Park

    One of the first things I usually look for is the direction shadows are cast, which will generally indicate whether the site is in the northern or southern hemisphere. This photo is one of the exceptions — in the southern tropics, shadows may still be cast toward the north, depending on the date of the photo.
