    I haven't logged on for some time, and just as I do this thread is off again....

    Alex, they're all easy if you know them :p

    In this case I do, Crosscut Saw from Howitt, but Romfrantic probably has it.

    Yeah, agreed....I was deliberately vague 'cos I was only 90% sure...but GS got more specific, it's yours GS. Now, your pic I have no idea! wild guess - Flinders, SA?

    No, it is in Australia. Prominent feature along a less travelled highway.

    well you cannot get any more west in NSW, since its not SA, and silverton is Way too far east tht makes it WA. Only half the country to think of now.

    Maybe gunbarrel Hwy?

    Mt. Beadell. I thought you may have guessed that after punting on Gunbarrel. Mr Beadell surveyed all those tracks back in the 50s or thereabouts. Bit of an outback legend I believe. Beautiful country out there. Not much skiing potential however....

    Too easy, though I have never been there. NSW DLWC have a great website on NSW estuaries here , I recognised the very distinctive headland.

    I wonder how often the river swaps sides ?

    just wondering when this was taken - around New Year 2006?

    Climberman, the channel seems to be fairly stable. Very occasionally the entrance blocks - this happened last 2005 for the first time in 40 years or so.

    OK sorted now.

    NSW - taken just after 7:00am this morning. Not very backcountry unfortunately - should be easily recognisable...any takers?

    Spot on, Shrek. It's Perisher Gap. For years I've wanted to take the moon setting over Mt P with the sun rising behind - seen it so many times without a camera. Shot from Perisher carpark...just the standard lens (Canon S3 - guess it's pretty long when wound right out).

    I'll post something a little more difficult later.

    it was the size of the moon andthe comp[ression of the turns of the road that made me think it was a long lens. I was thinking >300mm. I like the pic, nice colour and the moon :thumbs:

    Saw a similar sight looking towards dead horse gap this morning. Bloody moon was as big as the valley. Unfortunately by the time i could find a spot to pull over it was gone.

    First guess is the exit up from Surefire canyon, although I don't recall the graffiti. Then I think why would a bland photograph be posted unless it was a significant place; Thunderbolt's cave near Uralla perhaps?

    No sstone near Uralla - deep in the heart of Granite Country there.

    For some reason I'm thinking Kanangra Walls area.
