I took the shot for the rig. It is a beauty eh?, but the devil is in the detail. Look around.

Good eye for detail Tim R. The Port of Barcelona. We were there for 10 days a few years back and enjoyed it. Your turn.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Could it be the shoreline at Nail Bay, Virgin Gorda, BVI? (cropped so that Little Dog Island doesn't show)

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Many people have come close but it takes some effort to get to this exact spot by land. There is a boat anchored out of the frame and like Andrew's photo, there are some clues in the details but you really have to be observant to figure them out.
