Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

OK, this may be a hard one. Took this picture myself, from our boat. I'll start giving hints if no one gets it.

There can't be too many places where there are whirlpools, right?



Regards,
Brad

Looks like slack water in Discovery Passage..If the tide was running, there would be real whirlpools. Did Ripple Rock in '53 .

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

A lot of the Irish and Scottish shoreline has whirlpools and tidal races. I don't even know where to begin guessing.

Hebrides - Dubh Sgeir?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Teres a great one in the Whitsundays and I went through it a number of time normally under motor because of its location... Firts time scared, second time worried, then decided I would stop right in it and see what happens

Great fun

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Plum Gut, Long Island Sound on way to Shelter Island.


edit - further investigation suggests that if I'm correct then SeaDuction got there first. I didn't realise that Orient Point Light was in the same vicinity.
