Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture
With the Panoramio approach, you have to be close to the location posted. That's a lot more sporting than using Tineye for a reverse image search.
The way I got close on this last photo was by recognizing the salt pond and the volcanic terrain and figuring out it was in the eastern Caribbean, for starters. The clue about conflict in the area helped to eliminate some islands that weren't fought over. The territorial fights involving St. Kitts continued into the late 20th century when Anguilla seceded from St. Kitts-Nevis after rebellions in 1967 & 1969, with Anguilla being established as a separate British colony in 1980.
BTW, I recently learned about Tineye from this blog, but haven't tried it yet. That would take the fun out of this "Contest". Suggest we make that a rule: no Tineye!
