    That's close enough. Camels Hump, looking back along the ridge to Tid. Mtn , and Tid Peak in the very back. Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve is down in the valley to the left.

    I'm not sure if it's technically Alice Rawson, but if it isn't, it's certainly close enough. Looking into Lady Northcote Canyon.

    I think jagungal is a little off screen to the right. Those higher ones out the back could be table top and/or round mountain?? - don't know those ones to well.

    Close enough. The ridges between Sentinel and the Crags. Photo taken from the knoll above the ridge which leads out to the Sentinel.

    This is fun. Next image please.

    Drat. Strezleki Creek. Bridesmaid again.
    What are the rules? Graeme's image next?

    BTW, its a shame that it takes dead trees/shrubs to play beautiful games with the light in that photo. Nice shot SB.

    yes, but Newtons is 3rd beach along in the middle distance i.e. taken from north end of JS beach with the foreground rocks separating off a small section of beach only.
    Have you visited Wonboyn much in recent times, CarveMan?

    ...and for those who are interested in wilderness sandskiing, you can see the dune system of Cape Howe in the distance on CarveMan's aerial shot. A long way to carry your skis though - maybe strap them to a sea kayak!
