Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It has been a while since I've seen a thread like this - the rules are simple: attempt to identify the location of the last posted picture in the thread. Once the picture poster confirms the first correct responder that person then gets to add a (sailing-related) picture to the thread and the game continues.

Since I'm no good at this type of guesswork my only chance of getting a picture into the thread is by starting it off with the following picture:

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

lajimo - close, but not quite . I'll give you a hint - both this place and New Orleans are located in the same hemisphere of the same planet.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Knothead - no, not (yet). But you are correct in that the picture was taken on an uninhabited island looking approximately west-northwest toward a larger inhabited island just barely visible in the top right of the picture.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The Hebrides or maybe the Faroes?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The Galapagos are a bit closer, but still over 2000 miles away, so it isn't quite it. The temperatures are a lot warmer than in the Hebrides or Faroes and the sparse vegation is due to being on the leeward side of the island.

The whole island is a national park / nature preserve and there are some rare plants on the island. The bay in the picture is the only anchorage on the island and is quite protected.
