Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

This one is at sea level. You are not likely to see a lot of recreational boaters in this neighborhood. The name of the structure would be nice, but we need the name of the nearby town or body of water.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Sea level, same country as well. Lovely Italian island to visit, Sicily is. Found this historical report on Wikepedia.
Isle of Torre Avalos is an ' island of ' Italy located in the Ionian Sea in Sicily [1] .

Administratively it belongs to Augusta , Italian commune in the province of Syracuse .

The name derives from the tower built in 1570 by the Viceroy Don Francisco de Avalos Fernandez Aquino, which occupies the entire surface of the islet.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

That was fast, Seaduction, but I should have known how fast some folks can identify unique structures. This "rockpile" is located within a large harbor protected by a breakwater. Within the harbor is an Italian naval base and a NATO pier. There are large tank farms that set an industrial tone for a lot of this harbor--not exactly a recreational sailing venue. The ancient town of Augusta itself has some charm.

You're up, Seaduction

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture


You're right about "unique" structures. One of the major oil companies had a major investment there in that area, and maybe still does.
Try the above picture, mateys.

No idea where, but a fine picture.

I'd guess Australia.

A bit too far west Andrew. A frequently visited gorge. Clue- try 400-500 miles NE.
