Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I must have chosen my weather window wisely (we'll see after the run). Remember, first shout is on me... plus perhaps another one if you can guess the location in the picture. It is not on the Atlantic, Caribbean, Tasman, Antarctic, or Pacific oceans.

Here's my next picture, somewhat chillier than the BVI:

Looks like St. Petersburg (Russia, not Florida)?

Looks like the Annunciation Bridge, a.k.a. Blagoveshechensky Bridge or the Lieutenant Schmidt Bridge, in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Fallard - you've got it; I thought it would take longer to get this famous Baltic port and I had 2 more pictures prepared, one with an ice floe in it; but you were too fast! All yours.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

This location may be quickly recognized, but we'll see. This particular area is something of a "hurricane hole".

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The channel looks too narrow to be Camden, but who am I to argue with someone from Seal Harbor, Maine, with a username "downeast450"

I'm thinking further south along the US east coast.

Falmouth?
