Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Foliage look like it could be Oz but I don't recognise the place at all. Bare shoulders sans goosebumps suggests warm climate.

I would take warm climate. I.e. Warmer than Tasmania etc, warmer than PNW.


So no's:
Not Panama
No Its not NZ, North Island.
Not Phuket, Phang Nga Bay, Thailand.
Not really cold climate.





Next hint in 12 hours is a chart of location.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Unfortunately the Google Earth plug in does not work on Linux which is something of a bugger.

So ... Australia, I'd reckon East Coast and not from what I know, NSW. Ergo Qld. Not on the reef by the looks of the foliage but presumably Whitsundayish. Somewhere near Hinchinbrook ?

You're a hard man Mark.

I'm getting crossed signals though. You said not "Australia Whitsundays Hinchinbrook (Qld) " Just to clarify ... does that mean Not Australia at all ? or just not Qld ?

LOL

Yes, I mean its not in Hinchinbrook or the Whitsuundays but could still be in Australia. (I would pay particular attention to Alice Springs particulalry the Todd River. But thats not a hint either )

Also

So no's:
Not Panama
No Its not NZ, North Island. But could be south Island or any other part of NZ except the North Island
Not Phuket, Phang Nga Bay, Thailand. But could be any other part of Thailand
Not really cold climate.
Not Australia Whitsundays or Hinchinbrook area (Queensland) but could be any other part of Australia
North of 40 degrees south; and south of 40 degrees North.


Next hint is a chart of the area and will be posted exactly at 1pm Grenada time. 1700 UTC. 0300/31 Aug Australian Eastern Standard Time. The time in Botswanna 1900.........
