Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

OK, this view has a lot of clues. I visited this location from the land side, but it is associated with a well-known port.

Another military installation? North America?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'm glad I'm not the only one mystified by the picture. I got the military installation and non-tropical vegetation but that's where I stopped finding clues.

Yes to military and no to North America. The location is closer to Zanshin than Faster.

Could it be Ascension Island?

I had a similar thought, checked out the Azores but no joy.... Don't see anything on Ascension that fits either, though... Looks too rocky

Closer to Zanshin the Sailnet member, or Zanshin the state of awareness?

Are we talking actual military, or maybe government? Looks more like a weather station than a military base.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Closer to Zanshin, the SN member, assuming he is in Germany. It's a cape, not an island, and it is at a latitude north of the Azores.

When I was there, quite some time ago, it was in service of the military. I don't know if there is a weather station here.

Are we on the Med side or the Atlantic?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Ok, I think it might be Italy - there are over 100 U.S. bases there and many are on or close to the coast. If I rule out Air Force and Army and stick to the sea the list gets a bit shorter. I checked google maps around the 6th Fleet's home in Napoli with no luck.
