The Dinghy dock at the Oar to be more specific.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I made it too easy for the locals, after all. Maybe I should have held off with the dinghy dock photo, but after checking GE, it did look difficult for the distant players in this "contest".

Your turn, Rob.

RobGallagher - your clues are particularly difficult for me, insofar as all I see are greyed out "no entry" symbols.

I can see the photos. Let me post a few again with another method. I have to go to work soon, but I'll try and get it sorted tonight when I get home.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Rob .... I deleted the two posts where the pics did not show.

There is a wind farm with windmills similar to those (uncharacteristically small blades) on the island of Koh Larn, near Pattaya in Thailand.

And I thought this would be difficult. Even though there is ferry service to the island and many tourists go there for day trips, the photos where take from the far side. I think Even the speed boats take the northern route and don't see the wind farm. I figured the only way someone would get it right is if they sailed there... Am I correct? ...and I had more clues and photos all set to go

I chartered a Hunter 295 out of Ocean Marina and took these pictures in 2009.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

No, I've never sailed there and the reason I was somewhat uncertain about the answer was that I couldn't find a pic that nailed it. I just did a bit of googling and found a pic of short bladed windmills. All else was guesswork. Other pics I then found of Koh Larn didn't really help.

Let me see what I can come up with.
