Now .. to the matter at hand.

Presuming USA ? Guessing Florida somewhere ?
Presumption and guess are both accurate.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

That has to be somewhere near Cape Canaveral, but for the life of me I can't pin down the spot......is the view to the north?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'm getting nowhere with this. I can come up with the Sunshine Skyway bridge as a possible candidate for the bridge in the back ground but nothing around it that ties in with the original pic. Then again while the SSB is on the west coast it is apparently well known as a good spot for a sunrise pic.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

i thought the thing in the middle background is some tower or something like it, but it is an space shuttle or missile launch...

so if it is west of it, it should be around titusville - probably the marina there, but the bridge in the image is giving me some trouble...
does not look like the max brewer memorial pkwy...

no - i think i am right, it IS the marina in titusville...
look at the google maps image - it is all there, the pavillion, the sign, the statue with the sitting man:

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

You are right, Capt. Vimes. The original sunrise photo was taken about 5:30 am in June looking from the Titusville Marina toward the Cape Canaveral area. The daylight photo captures a shuttle launch just lifting off. You can see the exhaust trail just above the center of the bridge. Your turn now.
