That's correct Eggs. Looking south from Mt Lot. PB under the clouds in the distance.

Not from Thetis - but you are in the right area. This is sunrise.

Wouldn't normally jump in quickly, but this looks tough.
Adjusting the photo a little reveals a sharpish peak well behind the near foreground.
If it was the East Tower - it might place this on Pavement Bluff?

A closer look suggests the profile matches my view from the gap north of Ossians Throne, but not the view from Hamilton Crags.
It has to be a large zoom - so it is hard to figure the foreground - but it could even be from Little Hell / Giblin Fells

Close enough eggs. I was wandering back towards the village from Legges Tor summit. Can't be sure exactly where. Your go!

I wondered about Legges Tor - but thought it would look more like my view from Hamiltons.
But not so!

Been 9 years, so I might put this up again - an old scan of a photo from 1983.

Unless my researching skills have diminished I think this will be from Mt Zeehan eggs.

Yes - folk had trouble last time - but I guess I could have kept the clues for later .. :roll:

There is some wild country on the West Coast - this shot is towards Ocean Beach and the Trial Harbour area.

Sure is, something I'd like to see more of when I'm able to revisit the region.

Looks Tarkineish. Donaldson from near the mouth of the Donaldson River?

It is. Really need to explore more of it.

I'll have to give it to you NNW. That is Donaldson, which we climbed the next day. We went on a trip in a tinny with the ferryman from Corinna, along the Pieman and explored some way up the Savage and Donaldson rivers. I had thought this was from the Savage R but, looking at angles and slopes etc, I suspect you are correct. Memory is sometimes unreliable, I need a GPS marker in my camera. Over to you.

I was not sure about which river, but it doesn't match what I remember of the Savage below the logjam. Donaldson River is awesome to explore.

Is that somewhere along the Gingerbread Track?

Nope.
This is a different take on a reasonably well-known place.

I don't think so. Depends where Toad Rock is. If you mean the one near Pelion East, no.

To the best of my knowledge, this specific feature does not have a name, although it and its immediate surrounds are very distinctive and seen (from a distance) by a good number of people. It all looks very different up close. The bit at the top does have a name. It even has a track.
ps: It's not in Cradle/StClair NP.

I expected this to be a bit tricky, but not this tricky. You can see this spot from an Abel. You can see the track to the summit from another peak and maybe even from another Abel. It is in a National Park, but not one we usually associate with sandstone (or the even more surprising mineral near this rock).
