It is Stromboli!
Well done!

Stromboli is off the Italian coast in the Tirreno Sea.
Heading from the East Med cruisers often go through the Straits of Messina and 30nm on the western side is Stromboli.
As you pull up boats race out and tell you you MUST use a mooring... Costs 25 euros... But of course they are just trying one on! You keep going 100 meters and anchor.

Then at dusk you up anchor and follow the tourist boats out to the other side of the volcano. Every 20 minutes it erupts for 10 seconds sending a squirt of orange ash high into the sky.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Wow.. didn't really think that was it.. Monserrat was an obvious guess but the topography wasn't right there.

OK... This image is a pretty big hint in itself...

Back to you sir, the wombat seems a step behind....
