    The distinctive triangular peak in distant centre is Mt Ida, with Olympus just behind. Cathedral Mountain is in just in front, to left. Mt Pillinger is hiding in mid ground below skyline of the Ossa Massif.

    I was going to say from Quartz Knob but maybe with a longer lens from Timms? Foreground doesn't look right for Timms but.

    Gully on right is Cairn? Gully off Hooker/Black saddle on left?

    kinda sorta...on my original pic the right gully is black saddle gully, thats the left gully in this pic here, with cairn on right, you could stitch the 2 pics together. in the original pic hooker valley is the left gully, out of shot here

    the spot for the pic is named after a place not that far from your abode in the yarra valley

    Bogong seems much closer than I recall from there, was it taken with a long lens?

    Those Victorian alpine gullies and ridges are so similar...I can name a number of places that are not so dissimilar.
    Bring on 2021 season.

    Is an impoundment (by drowned tree stumps). Possibly coastal.

    Cross reference the Covid OG thread (Jimmy Rees).

    To narrow it down, not in Victoria, or South Australia for that matter.

    These are hardcore bogans out this way. Bogan before it was cool to be bogan.

    Nary a tribal tatt amongst them. Can even survive for more then five days without going to a shopping mall....

    Ten years in the mining sector, thought understood the species, but certainly witnessed some 'new' behaviours around this area.

    Check the distribution of the Australian pelicano' Darb. Stormboy was shot at 35 south.

    Now we're talking.

    Vegetation patterns are significant clue.
