Ellen, ironically after my guess I saw your picture on Smithsonian Channel Aerial America featuring Ohio. OK, what is the name of this place? Be specific.

Sorry for delay. Forgot I'd guessed. Saltwhistle was the only place I could think of that crowded, that close in. Try this...

Mike, most confusing to me - looks like a place protected by barrier islands hence relatively flat. I don't see any tropical vegetation like palms and the land rises sharply so I eliminated certain familiar places.. Just for fun, I'll guess somewhere in the Indian Ocean?

It's a difficult one this. Don't have any photos that will make identification easier so it'll just have to be a case of homing in on the answer. Not the Indian Ocean but you are in the correct hemisphere Fred.

OK, we know it's Australia now. It looks warm to me so I'll guess somewhere in the Northern Territory?

Nearer to Sydney than the Northern Territory. Wasn't actually that warm as it was winter. There is something unusual about the sand on this island. Can you work out what it is...

Well, there doesn't appear to be any sign of seashells. Closer to Sydney so I'll guess the obvious, Tasmania?

Looks like quartz sand, but not sure where in Australia.

Adrian... It is Silica Sand. Absolutely amazing because it doesn't stick to you and it squeaks just like the best powder snow when you walk on it. This photo is the island next to the original photo. It shares its name with one of the American Founding Fathers mentioned in one of the recent photo competitions...

Got me by the butt. Can't think of any island in Australia named like an American founding father.

That's it Fred. The island in the original photo Is Whitsunday and the beach Whitehaven Beach ( https://www.queensland.com/gb/en/th...c07b935fbe730dc52c-whitehaven-beach.html ). You may remember that Jean and I don't really like beaches (much to Malcolm's disgust) except when viewing them from the cockpit of an anchored boat but Whitehaven is different. The sand is incredible in that it doesn't stick to you and also doesn't get hot. Much more comfortable. than your average beach! Your go.

Mike, I forgot about beaches, but I do recall your disdain for kitty cats. Regarding your picture, I kept going through the alphabet and only after I looked it up I would have guessed Mackay. However, your clue led me to Hamilton. OK, here's one for now with a more revealing one later if needed.

So I just need to say that Zanshin has lived just about everywhere and sleepychef has worked the world over.

I’m a bit jealous right now.

But return to the game.

Beerman, I was looking for the name of the NP, but El Capitan could be in the picture so I'm giving you credit. My next one would have surely been a giveaway for Yosemite NP. Beerman, you are up.

Interesting - I thought of "El Capitan" and googled it, but none of the images matched, although the rock formations looked similar. I should have thrown out that guess after all smile That is one National Park that I need to put onto my bucket list.

Wasn't sure if that was a side view of the face of El Cap? I'm hopping in the truck to head for the mountains now...so I'll keep the theme going...where is this?

Guess it didn't go fast after all. I'm pretty sure Mike knows, but if you were to post something about this place, it would be under Southern Caribbean.
