The red ones are ones I am not sure about if they are new or not.

If someone could go thru that TAR14 link and add the ones we identified already to our list, we would have a nice master list for future races. I just don't have much time this week...

Is the fjord (47-48) new? I just ran through the intros to 15 and 16 again and I don't see it.

It is possible they are new. If, as Neobie has proposed, TAR17 made a short leg west of Stockholm into Norway.....obvious possibilities. Could they be stock footage from TAR2 South Island, New Zealand or TAR11 Terra de Fuego/Straits of Magellan, Chile? That surface geomorpholoy just doesn't exist in that many places on the planet Earth.

Thanks TarJunkie! Thanks Evan for the Intros!  Thanks slowhatch!!

I am away with limited time to look...but I don't see the fjord in these caps which is the last real summary we have:

TAR 14 Intro caps:  http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,18413.0.html

This is the best place to look for recycled ones I think! or check our season 13 caps too...

These three photos, to me,









are this place in Google Earth in Muttah, Muscat, Oman. They were built by the Portuguese.
Well I cant get the pic to show, so I will email it to Peach and let her edit this post.
Google Earth coordinates are 23o37'29.03"N, 58o34'43.78"

If you aren't sure what is new or old, then please refer to the TAR 14 link above...that was our last season of recycled caps we can use to compare! :tup:

Image 49 is not identified in that TAR 14 list. I do seem to remember it being identified later, maybe TAR 15 or 16. I seem to remember it is a castle in France.

It could certainly be Irish. At the time I thought it was English. The reason I remember it as French is I was quite surprised when it was identified. It just didnt look "French" to me. I am doing some google images searches and hopefully it will show up again.

I got tired of looking for the Intro Screencaps for 15 and 16......spent about 2 hours looking in archieves.....gave up.

I was thinking about this image, and I'm wondering if it could be Ireland as well. It would have come from leg 1 of season 12. right?

Check the TAR 14 master list, it is an old one too.  :'(

Can we take another look at this and see if we can say this is Oman for sure? Dr Rox seems to have it...are we all in agreement??

I believe this is a new cap, so  this combined with our sighting, apskip's great flight info saying Oman as transit is unlikely, AND a new cap, seems as though we would be safe calling Oman as a leg, right?? 

Can we get some other views to help confirm this 100%??

The place that I identified, is very close pretty far from the Muscat Airport. Then again, Muscat proper is pretty far from the airport. The airport is long way from "downtown" due to the local topography there. I have a GE shot of the area and will add it, when I can capture it.
