Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

this picture is not mine, but really nice, you can see the port, and the hill I was asking for.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The first photo may be a view from Playa Solis, looking toward Piriapolis in the distance. The hills might include Pan de Azucar, Cerro del Burro, Cerro del Toro, and Cerro San Antonio (by the port). All in Uruguay, of course.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

My guess--which djl confirmed--is that the first photo was taken from the beach at Solis (Playa Solis), about 6.6 nm NW of the hill at Piriapolis (shown in the last photo).

BTW, I will be away from my computer and won't be able to respond in a timely fashion if I were to post a new photo. Could Seaduction fill in at this point?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Folks - just a small reminder that by guessing and/or answering correctly you have taken the right but also the obligation to post the next picture. Identifying the picture and then passing the torch to someone else is not in the spirit of the game. So if you aren't willing to locate a good picture to continue the thread should you identify the current picture correctly then let someone else do so.

(And don't be cruel to the rest of us with "I know where that is but can't post because I have no picture" type of posts, that went out in 1637 with Fermat's scribbling in his copy of "Arithmetica")

The exact place where the picture was taken is shown here, but you have the same view from Solis too, but closer. https://maps.google.com/?ll=-34.7941...43920&z=15&t=h
