Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

to be more specific, I'd guess the photo was taken on the Caloosahatchee River, between LaBelle and Moore Haven.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Seaduction, a "side trip"? Those cows are at least 60 miles from the ICW (e.g., Stuart).

This photo was taken in a lake. The major clue is the color of the water in the bow wave.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Lake Okeechobee it is. There aren't many lakes so large that you can't see to the other side and the tea-color water would eliminate the Great Lakes. The photo was taken 17 years ago, the day after we anchored near the cattle ranch in Seaduction's post. That was the only time I can remember waking up in our boat to the mooing of cattle!

Back to you, Seaduction.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Awesome picture - particularly as from the angle the picture was taken at the bridge doesn't look like it could swivel to span the gap.

Heh heh.... no speed limit on that bridge 'cause the cars have to 'jump' the gap!


Could it be the Boca Grande Swing bridge?

I have another picture of the bridge showing the full length but I cant post it now because the name is in the photo properties. This photo is just a little further south.
