Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'm bummed - if you typed "Japan" to "China" in Google Maps it used to have a step "jet ski across the ocean", but that no longer works. Google now has a serious image and no more humour.

A similar looking photo on Isla Hermite. Drat! I copied it from Panoramio but the link didn't seem to work.

That was excellent. I actually poured over Google maps, trying to match the location.

Can you send a lat/lon or a map picture of where it is? (Simple method is to find it on maps.google.com and then chose the provide-link button. And then post the link here link.)

Brad
