Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Neither. But this light stands just a couple miles from that harbor and this photo was taken from the front yard of a famous author's home. It's said he used the beacon to find his way home at night from the local bars.

NAS Key west? The lighthouse is Key West Lighthouse. My dad is retired just down the street.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

With that hint and Andrew's help...I am guessing the original photo was taken from the end of Greene Street in Key West, looking east?

Andrew nailed the light but Zeilfanaat got the original location right down to the street! Good job guys!

I should have guessed it earlier, I was there in March!

Unfortunately, I won't be able to post any photos for a while, so Andrew, why don't you go ahead and post the next picture.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Now isn't this a fine predicament! I can't load a photo either. Well, Ok, the next person who logs on to join the game has a free wildcard to upload a photo. Who will be fast enough?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I will take the Wild Card!

Name the area.

I say 'area' as other clues may be different bays etc.

Well done Mark!

Northern or southern hemisphere?
