Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Bilgewater strikes again.

Slight curve ball on that one but I did say west coast of part of Australia. I never said West Australia.

all yours Steve.

I went through the same thing...takes a lot of time. This is a great way to get to know a country. It seems Lake Mcleod in the NW is pretty much dried up or so it appears in GE. It could be seasonal but I think maybe it is a result of the long drought Australia has been going through.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Thanks Fuzzy, that was a good one.

So this one may be easy for the PNWers but we will see. (that was a hint)
Unfortunately my own photos aren't as good as this one, so I robbed this from the www, hope I'm not breaking any rules .

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Last time (only time?) I've been through there was around midnight in a clear moonlit night.. but the colour didn't stand out then.

I'm going to leave this for someone else... Happy hunting, people...

Swinomish Channel "Rainbow Bridge" , La Connor WA ?

Hey, that was StillRainings home port wasn't it ? I wonder how he is getting on. Good bloke Still, took some hard knocks in the GFC.

ps - Bilge ... we modified the rules to allow choice of pics. Relying only on pics of places you have visited and photographed seemed too restrictive.

Off around the world again ...... came into here by sea some years back albeit not under sail. Lovely place, I'd love to go back.
