Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Stand down some, fellas, it'll be a couple of hours before I can get to my pics...

Looks like another interesting locale, the Isle of Man....

The Manx symbol on the sail would have given it away for sure

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

This is a very well known location, but perhaps not the traditional view...





.. and here's the 'artsy' shot..

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Jeez, fallard.. you a mind reader??

Yeah, figured it would be easy. I need to quit guessing cause I'm fresh out of challenging pictures..... Here's the more traditional view: We had a gorgeous day for this visit..

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

This is an atypical view of a very popular location.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

fallard - hmmm... there aren't many identifying features available. What is the next one going to be, a photo shot from a more typical vantage point but shot at night, or in the fog?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Not Mystic, but it is in southern New England. The beige roof to the right is clearly visible on GE and is a social hub for the sailing set. What is atypical is the relatively open anchorage for the month of August. It it helps, the view is looking to the South.

Don't want to make this too easy, but the following view shows docks associated with the aforementioned building. Those who have been here will recognize this instantly. Another clue: GE shows a winter view, with the harbor and floating docks removed.
