Not Marion but you are all in the right area of the state but perhaps looking from the wrong direction

I thought you are across the other side of Lake St Clair - say Travellers Rest Lake?

Spot on eggs. Lake Ina it is. Your go.

I'm standing on the sandy (gravely?) beach on the South Eastern shore of Lake Ina - looking North West across the lake.

OK here's one that will be in the next "Do You Know Tasmania" show at the end of October in Launceston. One of Matt Brain's photos - where is he and what falls are they?

Spend an unhealthy amount of time looking at Matt's photos. This place is more easily accessible.

Where was I and what am I looking at?

Well Dan - at first I thought it looked rather Labyrinth-y (maybe that should be Labyrinthine :?: )

But I'm gonna head across the valley, and suggest you're on Cathedral looking towards Massif.

Just an initial stab or three :!:

Always go with your initial instinct, but it's not IN The Labyrinth, and I'll leave the vagaries of spelling and grammar to you Peter.

I've been called many things Peter but that's a first, good enough, I'm on the track above The Labyrinth and below The Parthenon looking at The Guardians.

Thanks Dan. You're kinder than I will be next. I'm asking both where I am, and what I'm looking towards, on this old scanned slide.

cheers

That's it Tas-man, I am Peter's proxy, does that make me a proxologist? :wink: Sorry about that, your go.

OK, here's the next - a tele shot from a saddle between two named features X & Y. If you work these out you will know what I am looking at.

Looks SW Cape-ish Ian. So let's start with a wild guess. Are you between Window Pane Bay and Southwest Cape Range??
