Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I think a little drift is a good thing… I’m using this thread to add to my list of places I want to visit.

Back to fallard's picture - I guess he changed the name before I could peek

That looks like a RNLI Severn class so U.K., a U.K. dependency or possibly Eire. And old warehousing? So a old commercial port maybe??


Edit: Fixed dumb grammar

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Zanshin has the right to say yes or no but I like the idea that we engage in short discussions of the places posted. It gives the thread more depth.

I'm out of this one cos I saw Fallards unedited pic title but Geoff .... yes its UK.

tdw: I couldn't see the title from the posting. Am I missing something? I was concerned that the title might be available to those in the know, as you have confirmed. I'd post another pic, but now I have reservations if it's from the net.

You may just need to edit the file name before you upload it from your host.. I think that was probably what was 'evident' to tdw. (right click the photo and 'properties' or 'image info' will usually give you the file name...)

Most here simply rename the file 'mystery1, 2, 3, etc...'

Fallard,
I usually take the pic and view it outside the thread. It was when viewing pic I notice that it linked back directly to the site were you found it. I then saved the pic to my computer, renamed it, uploaded to Photo Bucket and then edited your post to insert anonymous pic. I don't think anyone else saw the pic before I did this. If you select a pic from the net I'm afarid you do have to save and rename or the original address is visible.
Cheers

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

O.K., Rob.

There are 34 Severn Class boats in active service (fingers crossed that it's not a boat from the relief fleet that is in an unusual place). Of those I think I would recognize 10 locations, so that leaves 24. But it's slow going to check them out and I'm trying to do other stuff at the same time so if anyone wants to join in....

I suspect it is one of the following:
Aran Island, Valentia, Islay, Lerwick, St. Mary’s, Barra Island, Kirkwall, Aith, Ballyglass, Stromness, Stornway, Campbeltown, Tynemouth, Arranmore, Portush, Aberdeen, Malaig, Buckie, Tobermory, Lochinver, Holyhead, Thurslo, Rosslare, Castletownbere

Edit: I don't think it's Holyhead - it's a long time since I was there but it just doesn't look right.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'm going with Cambeltown.

If I'm correct, I'd like to give the next move to Geoff54 because without the life boat clew and narrowing the list down I probably never would have gotten it.

I'd like to keep searching to be sure, but the girlfriend is on her way and I should have started cooking half an hour ago...
