Thanks JAM but No. Not to far away though in the scheme of things.
Snow Blowey: Very clever, with the cloud hiding the horizon.
About a klick west of Mt Anton, about 2 klicks north of Twynam, looking down upper Watson's Creek. Looking at what I call Tate West Ridge, but its been about 5 years since I've been there in winter.
Looks like the end of the Spion Kopje ridge to me.
It's got that look about it it VSG. I'm thinking of looking towards the western end of the Crags from Strezlecki Ck (on the way out toward the Sentinel).
yes, could be. Although this old shot from the Crags looking north, captures the same spur, I reckon. But it puts SB at the head of Watson's Creek, nr start of Crags.
as no has posted for a couple of hrs, im going to jump in and take my turn from my guess on the first page
Spot on VSG. Sorry for delay - been out this morning.
GS- yes you got the area correct, but now to be slightly more specific
hmmm, been a long time since I was last there and without map I'm struggling for names, but maybe the rocky outcrop directly above Halls Gap? Although I don't remember such a large mountain behind it.
Around the 'Nerve Tester' area?
(Haven't been there since school camp days 15+ years)
GS and Belly: thinking not there due to the much larger looking range just behind it...
The Balconies, whales mouth, Jaws of Death, area?
GS has got it. taken from the pinicle lookout
i'd have to guess blue lake KNP (2nd or 3rd 'blue lake' in this series?)
mr No. In the right range.
damn. Should have said 'its a blue lake in KNP'.
...but its probably a tarn.
Where's this? (Sorry about the image quality. At least it will add to the challenge)
VSG - I concur with JAM, Club Lake.
JAM, That looks like the Hotham road along the ridge in the middle, so I reckon taken from Razorback looking in a southwesterly direction with Buffalo on horizon.
Oh, and snow cover to very low level!
Looks like the buffalo plateau in the background. And there's a road cutting all the way along the ridgeline in the middle distance (or is it just some interference from the scan?).
I'm going to say looking northish off Mt Cobbler (not sure if thats the right name but i'm thinking of the knob shaped one you see from Craigs Hut).
I'll go with GS. Is that Buller / Stirling waaaaaay back mid left?
There is no question that the range in the background is the Buffalo Plateau and that the photo is looking west. But for life of me, I can't think of any scenario where you'd be looking over quite so many ridges. If pushed, I'd guess it's taken from somewhere near Mt Freezeout, but I'm thouroughly confused.
I'm thinking it is taken from the hotham rd, maybe near baldy. The road is a big horseshoe. You should be able to get a perspective like this before you go around the hill to the razorback.
VSG's is of Club Lake looking SE, perhaps taken north of the saddle in the ridge between Carruthers Peak and Mt Lee.
From the top of the boomerang shaped spur immediately south of Bon Accord Spur. At or above the road. Taken at a corner where the road turns from north to east. Just one 130 degree corner 900m along the GAR, separates you from the start of the Razorback 1600m away...
I'll go with GS and Stallie - looking along the south side of Bon Accord Spur to Buffalo. Probably taken with telephoto from the road as per Stallie rather than from the Razorback, to accentuate Buffalo and ridges between.
Sorry about the crap image. Ive got the arrow on BA. It has to be taken from down there somewhere, but it just seems a bit wrong.
opps photo cred to Heli.
I think the snow cover down to some very low level accentuates the ridges which would otherwise blend into one another. I'm still debating whether it was taken from on the Razorback or from the Hotham Rd or thereabouts.
I loaded up GoogleEarth last night: I know within about 100m where it's taken from.
Mt Selwyn looking North. Hotham is off to the right but you can see the start of the ridge.
Well? You can't leave us in suspense like that.
Waiting for the poster of the photo to confirm/deny your's/Stallie's/Graeme's bid.
edit: Without GoogleEarth avail, I've cobbled together this little image. JAM must have been standing under Mount Blowhard, on the edge of the GAR. http://darb.net/photos/anonymous/buff_to_blowhard2.jpg
Whats the big snowy ridge in front of Mt Buffalo. I think you guys are right but the ridge is confusing me?
Is it the ridge separating Wandiligong and Buckland valleys. Because in the photo it seems way bigger than I remember it.
Thought I'd move the original onto this page.... VSGs enhanced version makes the ridgeline in front of Mt Buffalo quite confusing....almost looks like above treeline on the far right, but I don't think it is.
JAM, I always meant to ask - is that JAM as in FIG JAM ?
Out of turn and out of left field, but its been 20 posts since the last pic. I know 3 places in the same general area this could be, and any of the 3 will do.
Pink granite and lithophytic lichen? - i'll say Wilson's Prom, although i was in Bridport in NE Tas recently and saw similar rock. and similar country.....
no - just shows I dont have enough awareness of rocks if pink granite is that widespread so the pic shouldn't be on "Where is This". In East Gippsland the particular granite concerned is known as Gabo Granite - also found at Howe Hill, where it is really bright and Genoa Peak (this pic Genoa Peak). I haven't been to its namesake Gabo Island which is on the same ridge line as Howe Hill.
From Townsend across Carruthers with Twynam in background?
