Well that narrows it a little. To help - this is a rather wide volcanic crater.

Yes MM - apparently the largest crater in Kenya - the floor of the crater is bulk frozen lava flows.

Thanks MountainMadness. This is in England. Name of the county or of the track will do.

Ah yes, quite right. When I read your post I immediately confused it with the river of same name that runs through Lk Manapouri (you'd think I would have twigged since I was standing looking at Waiau Pass the morning after I took the photo). Apologies for that.

Not Berwickshire, GregR, so I'm sorry I cannot accept your final offer.

This next shot is a little to the west of the previous ones (but still the same county).

It's amazing how you can go from "Still no idea" to "spot on" in one paragraph. South Devon Coast Path. Take it away eggs!

You can thank Google Satellite with associated photos - I had been scanning around Devon to start with and something caught my eye about the beach scene.

Correct eggs, viewed from the water. Yes, a very exposed climb apparently, not for me :shock:.
