Not a great picture, so I'll try to find others. North America.

Well if you are going to be like that, Iíll just take my computer and go home!

OK some clues:
The first picture was taken from outside the actual harbor although the old wooden lighthouse of the same name (now decommissioned and moved to the shore) was even further out. I guess either the name of the harbor or the outer bay will suffice.

For a short time it was a whaling center.

This is further in and from the opposite bank.

It's the entrance marker to the outside harbor, probably 200 yards (guessing) off the southern beach. Coordinates are 41-30-55 70-41-55. It's a nice spot to anchor in good weather although not really close to anything. It's too far from Woods Hole to access by dink and it'd be risky trying to negotiate the current getting across anyway. Everyone here probably knows it but Woods Hole has nasty currents.

Could the latest picture be up inside Pt. Judith Pond ?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Sorry, not Pt. Judith Pond.

Mark - Really? The lighthouse was named for the harbor not the harbor for the lighthouse…And it wasn’t old at the time so it would have had to have been “New Wooden Lighthouse Harbor”

Home to an educational and scientific institute – the first picture was taken from the grounds of the institute but not the main campus. After the mix up earlier, I was hoping Rob might recognize it. Although one is a bit obscure, here are the last picture clues before I’m forced to make it too easy. (The streaks in the sky are reflections on the window).

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Upper PT Judith pond was actually a good guess, I can see some why one would guess that.

CT River?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Let's try a slightly different perspective on the second picture. The buildings are quite distinctive.
