Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'd like to know more about that picture. When I first saw it I immediately thought I'd recognized the skyline as English Harbour - but then I had my doubts as I've never seen a ferry like that and the buoys didn't look right either - they would mean that the entrance is to the lefthand side of the picture and it still doesn't quite jibe...

The photo, like me, is quite old, probably taken around 1990. I think the ferry is gone now. I haven't been to English Harbor in quite a few years so perhaps some big stinkpotter took out the daymark on a windy day. Just a guess.
