... so we're looking at a sea? Maybe you're right, A... Asia is closer to Canaries in that direction.. and the vegetation looks better. China Sea?

I think Rob's gone for the duration so I guess we'll just have to wait.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

All a bit confusing. I was thinking that Rob meant we were looking at a sea but away to the south it is all ocean.

Ni how? is chinese for "hello, how are you"? but "Li how ma"? means nothing to me.

So I guess it's Asia.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Rob, I think we need some clarification. There isn't anywhere in China that looks out to an ocean. Some very big seas but no oceans.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Try 22 degrees,28 minutes North by 112 dgrees, 32 minutes, 8 seconds East, using the lat/lon readout at the bottom of the GE window. That would put you 41 km NE of the center of Hong Kong Island, where you will see a small island.

You will see a photo that matches the headland to the right in post #1067 if you go to Panoramio - Untitled photo
