Sooo many clues. Google had to cough up eventually. :-)

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I must go to bed. I was stumped...

So I wondered where I would sail to next winter if I had a proper boat, and only one place came to mind. I haven't been there since I was a child, but I still remember how beautiful it was.

The first photo I found on Google Images that I liked was taken by someone here in this very thread, so I unabashedly pinched it (sorry!). I hope he keeps quiet. :-)

Goodnight. Several others here can confirm a correct answer if I am asleep.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Mark - it can't be in Australia. We all know things there are upside-down and the water looks like it is in the correct quadrant of the picture (but the vegetation certainly looks like down-under flora)

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I didn't sleep very well. Bloody hot and the geckos were keeping me awake, but I got out of bed to come back here and help

Australia, yes. Someone quite well known here used this vantage point to get himself out of a spot of bother a while ago.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

This looks like Mediterranean type of setting even if those threes seam somewhat wrong. That should be the same kind of climate but Australia is so big I have not a clue of where to find the climate that corresponds to that setting so....have you any clues about that? What part of Australian is that?
