Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Does look like Paulo's nailed it, but it will be a while before our Brazilian friends wake up...

That was a tough find...even with the lighthouse...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The lighthouse one popped up on Tineye. But I could still only get as close as Sao Paulo. I have no idea what the full name of the place was.

But yeah, most won't, because they're all original works.

Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Ok, let'go:

- good morning!
- the pictures are not mine
- the baby is not mine
- except from her photo, i can assure you that the other 3 are not inverted
- it is a great sailing location
- I have been there twice
- Paulo hasn't nailed it yet, although he is getting closer

More hints?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Would this place be in the northeast of Brazil? Maybe the state of Pernambuco?

Northeast, yes. Not Pernambuco.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

That was a tough one Hthoni! The palms said northeast and when you mentioned the Dutch invasion I thought immediately of Pernambuco. Then the photo of the girl on the beach and the backgound made me think southeast...

OK. One last one in Brazil and once again in Bahia. This archipelago is one of the more visited areas by foreign-flagged boats visiting this region of Brazil. The first photo is of me arriving there after an all-night sail south from Santo Andre, BA. The second is more of a panorama of the main islands.

Hthoni, if I'm not here to declare the winner, please do so on my behalf. This one won't be so hard I think.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I give up, unless you give more information

Plenty islands on the region and all covered with trees. That one has almost no trees, unless you took a photo from some part that does not show the principal characteristics of the place and if so I will never arrive there.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

OK. More information. It's an uninhabited archipelago (there is just a government wildlife agency outpost to guard it). It has some of the best diving in Brazil. The hints above should help. It's in Bahia and it was an overnight sail going south from Santo Andre/ Cabralia.
