Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Nitmiluk National Park?

It's about 800 miles NW of Winston, where the Waltzing Matilda Centre is located. It's likely not the exact river in the song, but a good enough reference point. (Learned a lot about the song doing this research.)

And it's about 500 miles NE of the Prince Regent River.

(My backup guess is Gregory National Park.)

Regards,
Brad

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

My daughter suggested I use this picture.

It's 16 seconds into this video, taken spring of last year.


Name the body of water on Long Island's North shore. Hint, everyone was warning me about a particular submerged rock to starboard on the way in.

Regards,
Brad

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Google make this one is too easy. My guess is the rock you mentioned is north of the point at the entrance. Let's see if someone else can get this.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The rock is well inside. I'd never sailed there before, but I gave my son a sailing lesson at the south end of this area, right near where a lightship was docked, a few years back.

Brad

Yes. I was standing on the bow during filming. Soderbergh wanted the scene back lit. The wind was very light off the port quarter so I set the autopilot under bare poles. It worked well. The water there can get a bit shallow at low tide. There wasn't much under the keel the whole time, but I'd earlier sailed around a bit and it was a pretty consistent depth. Those are our pillows.

They were great to work with.

Brad

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

My guess is this is the lightship, seen here somewhat south of Newport, heading east last year. Maybe someone can figure out the the name of the pier as well as the L.I. harbor where it was docked.

Correct lightship.

She might still be in the bay where the filming was.

Nantucket spent the summer in Jamestown, RI, and was scheduled (Historic Nantucket Lightship in town for summer | www.jamestownpress.com | Jamestown Press) to move to NYC to be used for charters on the Hudson River.
