LauranceU is at least in the right hemisphere.

The bird is an Albatross chick ..... whose parents patrol the Southern Ocean.

Think September ....

Very few sailing boats visit this place but its not quite Antarctic.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Macquarrie island is very steep to. And would have albatross nesting... But the base station seems very large. But I will stick with Macquarrie island, Australian Antartic territory

Lachlan salutes you .... Macquarie Island it is.

While MI is officially part of AAT its not actually below the Antarctic Circle.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I thought Barbuda would have the clearest water in the world but no. It was very clear, but not as clear as this....


Hint: Less than 1,000 miles from Barbuda


Yes, tan shorts is correct. actually tan nearly all over!
