    How close to the summit of Cradle Mtn is that sidetrack? When we walked around the face the summit was obscured by heavy cloud. Does the climb to the summit go thru/past there?

    Northern KNP, just. The summit, that is, that this is taken from. And for bonus points.. what is the prominent peak in the distance.

    seak... mmmm.. never heard of Black Perry. To clarify, I am asking

    1. Where is the photo taken from? Which summit, in the very north of KNP.
    2. What is the mountain in the distance?

    and no, its not Jounama. [​IMG]

    the lake is at 970m, the far summit is about 1605m, and the summit the photo is taken from is over 1800m. [​IMG]

    The BP Australian Road Atlas I have at work seems to be lacking in detail...... It does show a peak near a body of water in the northern section. So how about Bimberi Pk as the peak pic taken from. I really have no idea. :p

    I think this will go quickly - just as well since I am jumping in with no prior contribution let alone having the last answer
    [​IMG]
    country?
    mountain range?
    from where?
    bonus points for name of the valley on the left with the unusual clearing. also for special wildlife interest.

    New Zealand. But then I saw the filename for your pic, so I know it isn't the more southern part of Aspiring National Park. (And it's GS's turn, I think.)

    My guess for Graeme's is NZ, just out of Arthurs' Pass (which is left of shot), a walk up to a hut, the wildlife interest is 'Goat Pass' something or other. Its been a while....

    Alex, i'd have to guess the last shot is looking back at Tidal River (conveniently excised from VSGs map) with Mt Oberon back middle right. So, therfore your hill could possibly be Mt. Bishop, approx 319m (thanks for the Very Special Graphics). There's even a picture of alex and his midget comapnion! Water in rear could be the Millers' landing area of Corner Inlet.

    Graeme what about coming out of the tree line on the Kepler Track? Just guessing now - i'd expect to see the lake, er Te Anau?

    VSG - Maybe mt leonard, looks a little more peaky on the contours and has the saddle-split?

    Space..traveling through the vast non emptiness
    That Kiwi one would be up by Rainbow above St Arnaud in the Nelson Lakes National Park eh bro?

    Lucky I read "mr" - was just about to suggest Kepler as well - down by Manapouri. Hmm...now I am thinking - there are no mountains in the distance - could it be unseen ocean? Twould look more southerly of the south than northerly of the south. Rainbow to the east past Blenheim has the inland and seaward Kaikouras (geez they are spectacular and driving the cost road through the tunnels) and to the westerly direct has Litlle Wanganui and the Twins up by Takaka - so I am thinking more southerly. Then...once again I am a thinking it could be north of same in MacKenzie country and the naem of a valley there elludes me now - but could be found in the books I have at home....


    edit: geez that is some crook typing.

    I recon i did alright for a NSW person who's been there for half a day 5 years ago. Would never have known the name of the hill though as Mt Oberon is the only thing i rmeber from that short trip.

    Almost there, note this zoomed in area of the 2nd photo:

    (this distinctive location probably makes it dead easy if you've been to the Prom at all)

    Hmm that photo seemed clearer to me, guess it helps if you know what it is. That zoomed in image is Windy Saddle from above.

    The photographs were all taken from near the summit of Mt Ramsey, the peak in the first photo is Mt La Trobe.

    mr has it - taken from somewhere towards Luxmore Hut coming from Lake Te Anau. The lake is just out of sight lower right. Can't make it too easy now. that's the Murchison Range, where the Takahe alpine flightless birds were refound after being thought to be extinct for 40-50 years.
