Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

No it is not that fetid lagoon.
But is within 10 degrees latitude of it

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

If it is in the trades then the anchorage is on the east side of the island/land. Hmm, 10 degrees means 600 miles so that doesn't rule out much of the Caribbean...

.... and it could be +/- 10 degrees....


Sure looks like Caribbean.. obviously little wind break, so low land/reef.. plenty of buildings so not a place like Nonesuch Bay....

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Very good Arnd, but the photo is not during a Trade Wind event.

If i remember correctly the temperature at the time was about 20 degrees C 70 deg F at midday.

The clue is the structures behind. If you have been there its easily recognisable.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

With just some high cirrus for cloud cover it doesn't look like any special weather, so 20c means that this location isn't quite in the tropics so those 10 degrees would be northward, which would also put it out of the trade belt. Lots of boats at anchor, but those building don't tell me much.
