Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

That mix of big boats and lined-up sailboats makes me think of Lago Gatun, although the water looks too clean. That first picture you posted (third one on this page) is a really impressive one!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

No, its not Lago Gatun in Panama. Damn, I enjoyed that canal!

BTW for the Quiz CIA there no use looking on my website for these photos

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Since the name Macquarie is ubiquitous in Oz, how about Lake Macquarie (I wonder if that even exists...)

Like saying Ataturk Square in turkey or Rue De General De Gaul in France, there is a Lake Maquarrie in New South Wales central coast.

I am "sorry" but you are woefully wrong.



I hope this next clue doesn't help much either...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

That ferry looks exactly like the ferries I used to take in Sydney Harbour, but the other pictures don't even hint at the inner or outer harbours. Could this be the Parramata River?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

This was indeed a Manly Ferry running from Circular Quay to Manly.
However this is not taken in the Parammata River.

Should we have another clue already?

Ok next clue... Name the body of water...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The "Sydney" ferry is definitely is painted in the Sydney Ferries color scheme, so I think we're not too far from Sydney but the rolling hills seem out of place. Assuming we're in Australia, though...is it the Hawkesbury River?
