Yup, you've got it...

Although, it sure wasn't painted yellow when I was there in '02 - that light is just the setting sun's reflection off it... Or, if it once had been, it was long faded away, like pretty much everything else in Havana... (grin)

Havana is a paradise for photographers, the light there is magical...

Yes... many of the Caribbean Islands are simply beautiful... here is one I hope you and others have had a chance to visit... shouldn't be hard to guess.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It has got a BVI feel to it, but I don't know of any beaches like that which rent sailboats. Is this an ex-French or an ex-British or an ex-Dutch or an ex-Swedish colony/country?

I know I can see St. Croix from the BVI. How about that?

Lol, either that or St. Thomas / St. John and perhaps, from the top of the hill on Jost van Dyke, Puerto Rico...

None of those but in the Leeward Islands group... that would be one heck of a clue...

Another hint...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It still looks like the BVI to me, but I'm out of islands I've visited there. I see a "Q" flag flying, so this would be a port of entry. Could it be one of the Spanish Virgins?
