Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Wow ..... where is the red flag with white background ? I don't see any flags at all.

Fast was warmish with Western Europe and while he has overshot the mark Lisbon is even warmer. It is not Portugal however.

Van could well be a Citroen .... or a Peugeot, maybe even a Seat.

Yes it is a major port. Largest city in its region but not the capital. Maritime industries including the port were moved from here, closer to the sea.

..... aha ..... oh you mean THAT flag. duh. Missed it due to lack of flutter. I'll try and find out what it is but to be honest I have no idea at the moment. I can assure you it is not the national flag. Nor is it the regions.

No further info re flag .... my presumption is Red Cross.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Don't have a real clue but from the wealth of hints could it be Barcelona?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

When I saw DJL's name pop up I thought he'd nail it but no.

Nor you Killarney.

Both Barna and A Coruña interesting choices. Barna is the capital of Catalunya so that rules her out. "Maritime industries including the port were moved from here, closer to the sea." rules Coruna out.


but yes we are in Spain .... the sailboat btw is an Open 60.

You nailed it. One of my favourite cities on Iberian peninsular. Once a filthy mess now a vibrant very liveable place. To boot, the Basques themselves are a fine bunch of people.

- What looks like inland locks, but the LS AA 3 rescue ship looks a bit overdone for inland waters.
- Deep locks, so a very tidal area
- grass growing on the ground leads one to think that this is a permanent display and no longer used, as do the wooden stairs.
- Background looks like the hills of central Germany
- Streets signs are european standard, but look French or German
- Looks like a very big sailing vessel in the background, with a deep keel so this is probably not central Germany.

So many clues but I have no idea where this could be... Perfect picture for this thread.
I agree great pic. Despite the clues and I couldn't get it even though I have been to Bilbao albeit 2 decades ago. Well done DJL

Here is a link which gives some info on the boats in the dry dock.
