Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

These have a European look, but do they use the Cardinal buoy system there?

They do but I I'm not sure if that's the case everywhere. I zoomed in and, at that resolution I can't be certain, but that looks like an East Cardinal to me. 'Don't know if that's much use though

Found this, so Europe is possible. The Cardinal buoys are treated identically in both systems, unlike 'red/green' either side of the pond. The one in the pic is indeed and East cardinal.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Yes, that is an east cardinal mark, and I just checked Google Earth and the first photo was taken looking to the NW so I don't know what that could be marking since the powerboat seem to be going between the cardinal mark and land.

This is an IALA-A country which is cold in winter. Here's an excerpt from Google Earth satellite view and the point marked with the red dot is where I was standing when I took the 2 photos and I have one more, the giveaway shot, looking into this small harbour/marina. The marina on the left of the picture is one of the smaller ones in this area, which is popular for boaters.

I take it that its not tropical. Could then be be Europe, Australia or NZ? So is it cold or warm at Christmas time?

Looks European to me, lowish tidal influence in the harbour.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

We are indeed in Europe, way above the equator. This marina has seen ice during the depths of winter in the past.

Found the little harbour. It's just north of Copenhagen. Not sure of the harbour name. 55deg 43.456' N, 12deg 36.262'E

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

LaurenceU - very good indeed, the last picture, added to this post, would have given it away because of all the Danish flags. I'm still in Copenhagen and have been to a couple of marinas which are all quite large, this one is mainly a fisherman marina and I still cannot figure out what that cardinal mark refers to.


Good job and the next photo is all yours, LaurenceU!
