Fallard... GE resolution isn't necessarily good enough for positive ID.. but I suspect you've got it. If Obelisk doesn't come along soon and confirm I think you can have the next go...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Fallard, you got it. that's the ash plain from Mt. Yasur. I in tended to visit Tanna to see the volcano and stay a few days but the people were so friendly that we stayed 6 weeks and visited 5 other islands. sorry for the delay, spontaneous overnighter to some of the islands here. fallard's up.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Ambryn, which djl suggested, was a candidate until I found a YouTube video that confirmed Tanna for me.

Ok, this one is not tropical. If you figure out where it is, you'll also figure out what industry this structure served.

That would be the Oestricher Kran, a former wine-loading crane in Oestrich Winkel.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Considering I lived right across the Rhine river from that crane at one time and often took the ferry across and drove by that crane, I would tend to agree with Azzarac!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Azzarac is right. The "Wine Crane", located in Oestrich-Winkel (near Bingen) is a surviving example of a human-powered crane. It was built in 1744-45 and was used to load barges on the Rhine River. This area has been noted for wine for quite a long time--hence the "Wine Crane" label--but the crane was used to load other cargo besides wine barrels.

BTW, the Rhine between here and Cologne is especially scenic and is not to be missed if one gets a chance to take a river cruise.

Azzerac, your turn to post.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

OK. Let's see how well you know your wharves...



HINT: I've caught a lot of salmon here over the years.
BONUS QUESTION: Anyone know its original use?

I really don't know where in the Pacific that fising pier could be, but I like the saying "sic gorgiamus allos subjectos nunc", so we better be peacefull...

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