Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Good job tdw! this is Long Beach, Belmont Shores to be exact. The wind and the breakwater make for some of the best kiteboarding in the nation.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Well donít I look stupid?

Iíve picked up an end-tie in Alamitos Bay a few times, most years at Christmas used to walk round the Naples canals when they were all lit up and spent many an evening in the Belmont Brewing Company (and the Rusty Pelican before it closed). Ö. and I still didnít recognize where it was. There used to be a friendly Irish bar just down PCH at Huntington Harbor but I canít remember the name - I think I fried a few too many brain cells when I was young and foolish.

And I still canít figure out where those cars are.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Could this be along the southern coast of Oz? Perhaps around Victoria?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I found it! this is a picture of the Great Ocean Road. The part that jets over the water is called the sea cliff bridge. This picture was taken in the northern llawara region of New South Wales.

Perhaps if you hid envelopes containing $100 bills round the Island...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I don't know it as The Great Ocean Road which is in Victoria but you are essentially correct. However ... without making it too easy I want to know where the photo was taken from.

The place shares something with the Long Island snap. Not exactly but very similar.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

the shot was taken from bald hill headland reserve near stanwell tops...
the whole area is called stanwell park and also famous for kite surfing and paragliding obviously...
if i am correct, i let rrslider have the honour - he did all the work and found the location...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Leave it up to the two of you to decide who goes next but yes the pic was taken from Stanwell Tops.
