Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Well. Since it will be a few more hours before I have access to my photos, lets talk this through.

We know:
It's a skinny stretch.
Access to a harbor that can handle mega-ships
On the upper east coast

Will add:
It's name does not represent the municipality, however, there is a municipality of that name. Sadly, we have all heard of the municipality.

Well, it's a bulk carrier, likely an oiler, and there are plenty of refineries and tank depots inshore of Sandy Hook NJ...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Seems that Faster was, errrr, faster.
The next shot was of the ship rounding Sandy Hook and the skyline would have been a dead giveaway anyway.

Well done gentlemen, well done.

I believe I know this but alas the curve of time requires that I visit my friends at Jet Blue at the first light of dawn.

Wild guess... Shannon Falls. If I'm correct, I'm going to play roulette tonight. C'mon 17!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

No, not Shannon Falls.. (long the local source of water for the Carling OKeefe brewery - but not any more..) Shannon Falls is near our former home of Squamish BC.. but you're too far south.
