Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I found it through the coat of arms, after a dozen different google attempts.

Geoff54 is next up for post.

DownEast ... you need to check the rules of the game. Its not just open slather, whoever identifies the posted pic first, gets to then post their own.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture



I was waiting for Zanshin to confirm but I'm pretty confident and, as he appears to be offline, I guess I'll "Keep Calm and Carry On".

Have a go at this Downeast. It's a very popular spot and I think we need something a bit easier after the last one. At least I think it's easier.

Looking for the location where the picture was taken from.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

O.K. but it is much easier than somewhere in Brazil that no one else knows about

This is a popular spot in a popular and very well known group of islands. I took that picture but I have seen many taken from the same place by others.

Here is a different view.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Caribbean, yes.

The buildings are the small resort, which is named after the island. This used to be one of the quieter bays where you tended to avoid most of the party crowd but the resort is expanding and the two buildings in the lower right are new, so I fear for the future. This a small island with only a handful of private houses + the resort. The islands are close together; in the second picture you can see four islands.

Not the Keys or Bahamas.
