Re: Picture Identification Game

Think it's a big river. I am going to go with the Loire.

Let's make this "game" about the members' travels.

I suppose since this was Zan's thread he can make the rules... or revise them. I yield the balance of my time to the sailor on his way to St Martin.
Fine to disagree and we do. Iím only saying the rules have been stated and players shouldnít change them on their own. Itís unsportsmanlike. For that matter, you have no way to know the poster actually took the picture, so I see it a moot point. Too many are already claiming they are running short of good pics, so Iíd rather see the thread survive than run out of personal material. JMO.

Re: Picture Identification Game

Minni.... thanks for your opinion...
We are doing some naval ;-) gazing

Hard to believe members don't have pics taken from while out sailing. Considering we live in the age of selfies and instagrams which followed on those Kodak Moments... members should be able to find some pics.

I have pics from the film age and they are not scanned or digitized and they live in the old style hard drive.... show boxed on my of my servers (closets). But I was able to find some.

Zan did not specify the source of the file when he proposed this thread. I thought it a good idea for many reasons... some I mentioned. I very much enjoy seeing where members sail and what impressed them enough to click the shutter. So I may have narrowed the file source to members past. And why not?

This has nothing to do with sportsmanship.... That's just rubbish!

I also think that it should have more members not the same old smarties posting all the time. So I would also like to see that if you've won before... your win means you have to pass to someone else...

AND...

the pics should have features which allow others to identify the location... so a sandy beach with palms is not appropriate in my opinion.

No it's not Martha's Vineyard!

Re: Picture Identification Game

The body of water is not a river. Here's another picture taken when it is busier there

Re: Picture Identification Game

Are those ocean going ships in the background, is this a port?

Re: Picture Identification Game

hpeer - yes, it does have access to the ocean and does have a port.
SanderO - draw a circle from the middle of the Ijseelmeer 300NM in diameter and this spot will be inside that circle.
