beginning of Tom Kneen Track??
The upper Howqua Track leading onto Howitt Spur.
Now that has be obscure?
Looks like my back garden
Now thats funny
I know I'm not playing by the rules here but have started playing around with the scanner at last.. this shot is from a slide circa 1989
kanagra walls road? About 4 ks from the top of the 2 mile hill at jenolan. im guessing because of the ferns.
Falls creek rd on the left heading up and before the power station rd.
Majik, at tbe Big River Crossing looking up to T Spur?
Majik is it the Otway area??
Sorry, been away.
Legend got it - Upper Howqua Tk on route to Howitt Spur. So much for obscure pics!
BTW what sort of scanner?
no one has it yet, geographically GS is closest.
Interested in folks comments about scan quality and colour .. had to do a bit of "de-ektachroming". This was using a Canon flat bed scanner with a slide adaptor. The image on Darb has also been obviously optimized. I've deliberately started with a couple of tricky contrasted slides till I get the swing of it.
I'd go the other way and start with some easy ones first. Pick a nice correctly exposed subject without much contrast.
I guess if Donna is closest so far....somewhere in the Dandenong Ranges? Kallista area?
getting colder GS. gawd I love puns.
Hmmm, not sure if things are reversed on a ski site.....cold is good. But I'll have a punt on Black Spur maybe.
What about the touristy falls near Marysville. The ones that are all lit up at night. I can't remember the name. If so I have a photo of the very sam fern.
surveyorcam is warmest or coldest if we play by GS's suggestion.
on the road to Lake mountain yes.
no idea legend, but thats a top shot
I have a strong feeling I've been there, but I can't quite place it.
So I'll guess something rarely visited in winter like Mt Clear or the hills nearby.
Interesting snowshoes, what brand and model are they?
EDIT. On second thoughts, can I change my guess to the ridge between Mt Koonika and Mt Speculation?
Bogong, you've more than likely been through the area. Snowshoes are Northern Lites Backcountry Rescue weight: 1.2Kg pair. from Prolific Sports (prolific.com)
Taken from in between Picture Point and Magdala after you have walked down all the crappy loose rocks and been chased by the cows.
Looking at R-L Spec, Buggery, Crosscut and Magdala.
Oh yeah nice pic
Good stuff sidetrack, with Magdala & looking at R-L Spec, Buggery, Crosscut and Magdala. But where's Picture Point and what cows???
Pic Point is the last lookout above the road before you drop down. The cows well I hope they are dead.
There were no sign of them last winter. Now for something a bit different:
Sorry about the quality, but scanned from a slide.
Oh, the memories of walking, eating, sleeping and living in muddy button grass bogs in Tassie!
It could be almost anywhere, but I'll venture Lake Judd.
Not Lake Judd
Well done JAM.
We (a VMTC trip) got dropped off under Frankland Saddle late afternoon and this was the only 'campsite' available. The following day we climbed onto the range and began the 9 day walk back to Serpentine Dam.
Nice. Kinda reminds me of cooking in the intertidal zones in alaska to keep the food smells away from the bears.
As the song goes, 'we'll never ever get Lake Peddar back'.
The background should be quite easy, but try working out where it was taken from
Walls of J. Solomans Jewells?
Looks like from the top end of the Traveller Range. The pointy mountain is Pelion East, with Ossa (obscured) just to the left. In the middle foreground is it Ducane Gap and Falling Mountain (on left)?
Yeah my guess isnt right, as from Solomans youd be looking into the walls, not out of them back to overland track.
Beeper is right. There's a fantastic campsite at the NW end of Lake Merope on the northern edge of the Travellers Range.
Bloody locals. Beeper are you one of those wade-through-neck-deep-snow-in-stubbies type of taswegian bushwalkers i've occasionally met?
Me? - too soft for that, I always walked around the bogs and avoided shorts because I hated sunburn. I've been up most of these peaks and have a photographic memory. These days the boots are hanging up and I'm found sipping coffee in Salamanca. My youngest is becoming a trooper, so the retirement might be shortlived, see you on the track
ok i didnt win but i'll keep it rolling....
East Gippsland weather in the winter- the best time for the beach! Yerung River with Point Hicks in the background
Oooh, that's impressive! I really like the precise detail! Been there but I would never have picked it
Winter yes. Yerung River no.
