Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The Panoramio photo shows the same boats, but taken from a slightly different vantage point, as the photo in his post. Maybe the dark-hull one is Zanshin's.

Panoramio, now? ...and I thought I had all the tricks. :-)

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'm not sure why MattSplatt is mystified. When you think you've located a likely spot on GE, you can check photos posted in the vicinity for buildings or landmarks. These photos have been uploaded to Panoramio.

I wasn't mystified. I just thought I was pretty smart googling this site for image URLs and the like. I hadn't thought of Panoramio. I have most extra stuff turned off in Google Maps/Earth.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

With the Panoramio approach, you have to be close to the location posted. That's a lot more sporting than using Tineye for a reverse image search.

The way I got close on this last photo was by recognizing the salt pond and the volcanic terrain and figuring out it was in the eastern Caribbean, for starters. The clue about conflict in the area helped to eliminate some islands that weren't fought over. The territorial fights involving St. Kitts continued into the late 20th century when Anguilla seceded from St. Kitts-Nevis after rebellions in 1967 & 1969, with Anguilla being established as a separate British colony in 1980.

BTW, I recently learned about Tineye from this blog, but haven't tried it yet. That would take the fun out of this "Contest". Suggest we make that a rule: no Tineye!

Fallard has it - I'd forgotten about the Panoramio pictures!

The sunken cannon is indeed under the blue-hulled old "Zanshin", the neighbouring ketch is a befriended boat and soon afterwards the cat belonging to Chris Doyle was there. The dredging work is a major project to turn the salt marsh into a mega-resort - but the work has been stretching on for a long time with no end in sight.

The UNESCO World Heritage site is toward the other end of the island, the grand Fort at Brimstone Hill (see Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park - UNESCO World Heritage Centre) and I've got some nice pictures of the Fort on my blog at Winter 2010-2011 Blog and Diary 2011-02-05

White House Bay is a protected anchorage, unlike the main one off Basseterre just a couple of miles to the north. I was there a week waiting for some heavy weather to pass, since my companion Ketch wanted to wait.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I haven't heard of Tineye before. I'll have to check it out. (I won't use it here, of course!)
Sounds like it's similar to that iPhone app (I forget what it's called) that you can play a snippet of music into, or even sing, I think, and it figures out what song it is.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

OK, where's this? Perhaps including a lighthouse will make this too easy, but see if you can identify the structure in the background with the flag up high,
