Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Someone had a bad day right in front of a bunch of his freighter driver buddies. Where is this?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Could this be the headland on the southern western coast of Nevis? Those coastal bluffs and lighthouse look very familiar, and I know that there is a commercial docking facility close by.
Hmm... I just realized there are too many buildings there and that the water close to the shore is only 20-25 feet deep, not deep enough to hide the big ship that superstructure implies. Oh well.

You're in the wrong sea, I'm afraid, Zanshin.

I thought it would take a bit longer than that. You're good!
Your turn Fallard.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The mosque and the heavy commercial traffic made me think of Gibraltar first off. My initial guess was that it was on the African side, but it is actually is in Europe, as the name implies.

The next site is shown below. This one could be easier than it might appear at first glance. The bridge is rather unique and it should be easy to figure out where in the world it might be.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Chappaquidick bridge of Kennedy fame?

addendum - strike that, there is no power in that part of the island and the bridge is smaller. I posted too quickly.
