No river delta, where water is brown... In the picture you can see ocean water...and this is a very particular port. piece of cake.

Life is an experiment, use the right tools and elements, and you'll do fine.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

You folks are moving too fast for me. donjuanluis obviously got my post, but there is an interesting history to the watery locale. Those of you interested in history might look up Holy Loch. There are stories of St. Munn from the 6th century and much later a quarantine station and then submarine based for the UK and then the US, which based ballistic missile submarines there for 3 decades, but vacated the Loch in 2009.

Holy Loch Marina is now the dominant water-based activity, located at the site of the Robertson yard, which built a couple of America's cup challengers 60 or so years ago. The marina connects to Gourock--not too far from Glasgow--on the other side of the Clyde by ferry.

In my search, and after finding the relevant information to the place, also found interesting history in wikipedia, and some other blogs related to the subs campaigns.

don't look in Argentina...If you take a good look to the pictures, it will be easy to find it using Google earth, there is only one port with such a long wave braker (barrier), and city just behind.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The first picture has a green entrance marker on the port side, so it is an IALA-B country (taking European countries out of the running).

How about the Port of Callao, in Peru?

IALA B is correct. South América also, but not Peru. Better to look in the east coast.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

How about Buenos Aires in Brazil? That breakwater looks quite long and seems to point towards an area with high-rise buildings.
