I'm glad you liked it, studio4t1 - thanks for the visit :) - Greetings from Plymouth!
@lemonranger - there are one or two similar amongst my collection, to those who look.
Are you sure this is the right photo?
The place you have indicated is a bussy street intersection with trafick lights. It has an idustrial area to the east, a graveyard to the south, and residential areas to the west and north.
Why don't you try it?
The Panoramio interface is the equivalent of thousands of maps. Google Earth is even better. Their ruler tool not only gives you an accurate distance in different units (you can choose), but also true heading (better than a magnetic compass which shows local deviations).
Draw a line from your icon 215˚ (SW) to a length of 5.2km and you will see where the icon should be.
Merci, mais aucun mérite, télé Nikon sur Nikon d'époque,
dans le poste du DC6, la piste droit devant....pas ratable!
Rangiroa is big.
The place you have indicated is at the other end 77km from the "Blue Lagoon" and possibly 85km from where you actually were.
The picture is approximately from the north (looking south) and what we see is the western edge of the atoll.
