Hard to be sure with the OTT saturation, but that rock looks like granite?

I tried uploading a few variants to tone down the HDR effect [It was in-camera HDR], but this is indeed granite.

Ta.
Which tends to suggest eastern Tassie and near the coast. Doesn't look even slightly familiar, so I'm guessing it's on Flinders?

"Mainland" Tasmania - I haven't been to Flinders Is.
Sorry for the quality - but a lot of the background blue is ocean.

to assist - this is a similar view from an earlier trip.

One of the Hills, maybe #2? That looks like Moore's Bridge down there, Picton right rear . . . not sure about the angles.

I think that's Proteus.
I use the term "think" fairly loosely here.

A bunch of mighty fine looking guesses there, but all not right. Indeed, figuring out what that closer mountain is will help lots!

I think NNW should go next. She has been to many places I will never get to and takes fantastic photos.

Probably not a good idea. I'd rather not poach, besides I'm going to be out all day tomorrow.

Yes it is. A bit scared my 2WD might get stuck in there as it was still snowing heavily.
For a South Aussie it was pretty special to be amongst that fresh snow.

You're in the ball park, but I'll see if anyone can pinpoint an exact spot or name of the track/route.
