Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

CLOSECALL's got it!

The view is from the Rams Head trail that starts by the beach at Salt Pond Bay, just around the corner from the near point of land. The volcanic terrain and relatively undeveloped island scene are characteristic of St. John, most of which is a national park. The turk's heads in the foreground were a climatological clue and the Concordia Eco-Resort is visible on Google Earth.

The national park includes much of the water around St. John. The park service has provided moorings in the "no anchorage" zones. There are 8 overnight moorings at the head of the bay (out of sight, around the point), just off a very nice, sandy beach. There are 2 day moorings in the foreground, off the rock and pebble beach.

Looks like we have a new member of this forum. Your turn to post, CLOSECALL!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Nope, I guess not. I've tried following instructions but I'm not getting it. A little help?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

You need to put your photo on another website and then link to the photo like this:

Code:
   [-IMG]http://www.ourlifeatsea.com/photos/closecall.jpg[/IMG]
without the - before the IMG

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

CloseCall... you may need to get a few more posts to be able to post links. By far the easiest/best way to post pictures here is through a site like Photobucket.com. Signup is free, I've received no spam, you upload your pictures there, and then be sure to copy and paste the IMG CODE link option into your post.

Give it a go.. the nice thing is that way anyone can see your pictures, lurkers included.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I really don't want to hold things up. Please, anybody who wants to, just go ahead and post a photo. I'm supposed to be building a fence to keep the deer out of the garden while I'm sailing.
