Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Ok capt vimes,

It`s always good to guess a picture even when others do all the leg work for it. I bet you could chew on nails right about now Zanhin, eh?

I however, have no pictures on this computer to post, so I will pass the baton onto Zanshin to post a picture if that is ok. He did all the work.

You`re up Zanshin.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Thats a bit of a scum bucket quiz photo, Arnd!

Its North Africa.... I think Egypt but I dont know where. Its not Alexandria or either end of the Suez, definitely shows sea.... So...

Its gotta be on the Nile and the sea is not a sea...


Nile river at Lake Nasser, near Ashwan, Egypt?

This is not Egypt, but it is salt water. The natives don't speak Engrish as their native tongue in this locale. The waters are somewhat colder than in the Med or Red Sea as well.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It's an interesting one this female muttley isn't it ? Arnd says salt water and coolish salt water at that, yet the cruise ship in the background is most definitely not ocean going. So inland salt sea or a large enough body of water to permit a cruise liner wandering about in protected waters.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

No, its not China. The water and the sky are both blue. If you have been in China you would have noted the sky is white or smoke coloured and the water is brown with bodies floating in it.

(India is the same except in the water floating with the bodies are whole towns...)

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

My guess is the black sea...
The cruising boat in the back looks like the types you find there in the northern part around the krim and the danube delta...
