    nah... Graeme seems a scroggin and green ginger wine man, to me. [​IMG]

    All credit to Mr Evans. Bless his touring socks.

    Photo from here: Link.

    Graeme: Mr Evans says it's from the summit of Tate at 2068m. My guess is he used a telephoto. [​IMG]

    no - mixed up with your tos and froms. Also, I didn't shag the girl because I am not into incest.

    VSG has got it, but still not where it was from (his link shot was from Heli).
    Machinery Spur, Mt Loch (aka lake), near Red Robin Mine and The Orchard.
    ...then again, looking at the links, maybe VSG has got the from location but just hasn't said it.

    no offence taken. my daughter Emma might take offence if she knew she was mistaken for her grandmother though.

    yep, and the Cobungra River was on an episode of "A River Somewhere". Dibbins Hut that they rode horses to is directly down from Basalt Temple. It would have been easier to catch a lift to The Orchard and ski down from Derrick Hut.

    no, I meant it was not taken from Machinery Spur, which was what I understood from your previous post (bacon and eggs, cabana and cheese, shagging my daughter etc.)

    double posted, again. doh.

    Yes, I marked Basalt T on my linked topo. I had it nailed. [​IMG]

    For those in any doubt... (the orange marking is the gully where the slide happened last year, documented on the Hotham website.). [​IMG]

    Well, what a place chase.

    There's some nice skiing (and awesome views) over behind loch on machinery spur (alot of it way beyond my skill level). Made it halfway down to RRM year before last, but my 4-month pregnant partner decided it was far enough (had got my shagging in too early!).

    Will have another peek when i'm up at hotham 1st week sept. Good to learn about that slide.

    Mine was looking south between Seaspray and Yarram.

    I will have the camera all ready for some pics of the low level snow over the next few days!

    Where is this taken from and looking to? Fair bit of zoom on this one. Click on the thumbnail for bigger pic.

    [​IMG]

    Btw, the photo Graeme posted on page 6 clicky is of Mt McDonald, taken from the west peak looking towards the main peak.

    Quite right. I particularly put this up so that Unknown could see what his Death Mountain looked liked when there was some visibility. This was a great summers day - good views to The Bluff nearby, wildflowers, and a cloud of bright green butterflies congregating at the summit.

    You are at the right longitude to within 1km, but too far north [​IMG]

    No, but you are in the right sort of area. Photo was taken within 20km of the summit of Jagungal. The hill is fairly small, I guess about 20-30m above the surrounding country.

    I think I have made this one too hard [​IMG] It is close to a popular access route that you XC skiers seem to love...

    I'm not sure of the other photos that have been posted; the second photo that Top Rock posted looks like the view towards Mt Wills from the High Plains but the chair lift means it can't be that.

    Well, it looks like Alan Levy's view of the big J...
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    That really does look like the approach from Bradley's Hut... but anyway. [​IMG]

    Your hill must be on the way out of the Nimmo property.. coming in from the east towards Jagungal? a route that some use to ski to J. ?

    Looking up from the Eastern side of the Bull's Peaks sounds right to me (near burrungubugee creek?) - definitely not the big J - peak is too sharp for that

    Wow lots of guesses! I think it is ok for me to reveal it now [​IMG]

    Photo was taken from the powerline road, on the Geehi Dam side of Schlink Pass, near the hairpin bend about 1km past the site of Dianne Hut. View was looking south, which makes the hill that little bump located at GR 224834 on the Mount Kosciuszko 1:50,000, around 1.5km WNW of Dicky Cooper Bogong.

    I was on a walk up from the Geehi Dam and the little peak stood out quite a lot, so I grabbed a photo.

    VSG & Majikthise: After seeing that photo I can definately see why you thought it was Jagungal!

    angusjtksi & legend : The Bulls Peaks do look rather like that from the east. Another hill that has that 'peaky' look about it is Brassy Peak.

    This is the last photo I will post for a while; should be a little easier than the last one [​IMG] Name the place it was taken from.

    Somewhere near the north end of the Currango plain - I can't remember the name of the hut. That looks to be Bimberi on the left horizon.

    Coolamine? Doesn't that look across Cave Creek rather than Tantangara.

    Old Currango maybe.
