Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The Galapagos are a bit closer, but still over 2000 miles away, so it isn't quite it. The temperatures are a lot warmer than in the Hebrides or Faroes and the sparse vegation is due to being on the leeward side of the island.

The whole island is a national park / nature preserve and there are some rare plants on the island. The bay in the picture is the only anchorage on the island and is quite protected.
