Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Rob's got it. Campbeltown is near the southern end of the Kintyre peninsula in Scotland. I never got to Campbeltown, but have been within sight of the Mull of Kintyre.

Rob's been itching, so have at it!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

If Geoff doesn't mind I'll run with it.

OK, this one is not so remote, but off the beaten. I was there in about 2010 but never learned what it was called so I had to google it myself to get the actual name.
EDIT: I could not get the name from google maps, thought I had it, but I was mistaken.



More clues to come, unless of course our fuzzy friend comes through again....

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Could it be Ile Pinel off St. Martin? The hills ashore plus the big long beach look familiar and google Maps doesn't help me with the little lonesome dock.

You are a long, long, looong way off. Zanshin, your destination is closer to home than St. Martin.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I wasn't too sanguine about my chances since I've never seen fog/mist like that in the Caribbean but I thought to give it a try. What are those red and blue thingies on the rocks?

Debris, not sure what from. Lots of beer cans, fireworks remnants and fishing nets. It's a lovely place, but not the cleanest.

Here is a view looking to the East (maybe N.E ish).

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

A couple more clues then I'm off for the day...

I showed you a view from to the N., E., and West. The view to the south is nothing but ocean for as far as they eye can see, and farther.

I really don't expect anyone who has not been there to come up with an exact name as there is none on Googlemaps.

The name of the bay is close enough, or even the peninsula you can see to the north.
