You mean that people playing this "game" look for their answers in the photo properties and are not truly relying on their own personal recognition of a location? Huh! What does that have to do with recognizing a place? Oops! It doesn't say recognize anything but identify the picture. It could be a picture of the islets of Langerhans with a photo properties label. Can't say I have ever sailed there?

While we're waiting for ebs, here's a view of the Alligator River Bridge from the other side:



Looks like it hasn't been painted since this photo was taken in 1996.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

They must have had a single contractor/engineering firm in the region.. pretty hard to tell the difference between it and the Boca Grande bridge in Florida.. same girder span, same shack....
