Is that the Aegean or Adriatic Sea?

Life is an experiment, use the right tools and elements, and you'll do fine.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

well...
i do not know what an american may call europe...
but yes - geographical europe and therefore it is not in the middle east, turkey or on the african continent...
the canary islands are EU but still regarded as part of the african continent, being a part of the african shelf...


put that together with all the other information already received and it narrows down the place quite a bit, don't you think?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

another hint:
the marina is very often chosen by skippers who are participating in a transatlantic or round the globe race and brake their boat early into the race... even if it means a longer detour and limping their boats to the place in question...
since i visited the place, i know why they are doing this...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

sorry - not madeira, but it is getting warmer...

all infos cumulated:
it is in geographical europe - hence not in the caribbean and not in south america and also not on madeira (this is also like the canary islands regarded a part of the african continent)
not in spain
not in the adriatic or agaen sea
not in the UK

come on guys, it is not that difficult...
the main square with the church, shot from almost the same spot as the other images just in the other direction:
