Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Faster, I found some clues. In the photo on the right side of the big tree is a small airplane with pontoons I believe. Also, the background has a rather large ship, perhaps a ferry boat, docked at a pier. Just trying to bump the post higher up in the queue.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Significant clues in the foreground, actually, too.... You're right, it's a busy floatplane port...

Here's a shot from nearby:

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

TDW's got it.. Nanaimo harbour, and specifically Newcastle Island Marine Park, with the second pic from nearby Protection island, the famed Dinghy dock pub behind the foliage on the right. (The palms were supposed to throw you off)

Interesting link, Seaduction... but whoever it is got it wrong. Gabriola Island is a few miles distant, and all the quarry/pulpstone/pillar references are actually to do with Newcastle Island, currently the park.

This park has many kms of trails, several quarry ruins, footings of old canneries, was a significant coal mining area (hence the name).. Coal shafts and tunnels run under the sea between Naniamo and Newcastle, and an old ventilator shaft still stands.

A former Union Steamships tour stop, the original dance hall still stands and is often rented out for parties and weddings. Campsites, passenger ferries, camp floats for 60 odd boats and dozens of mooring buoys round out one of BC's premier sailing destination.

It seems like a scholarly article with several references, including a survey for property on Gabriola for the quarry. So there's no old sandstone quarries on Gabriola, eh?
