Haven't been there for a while.
Where was I when I took this photo?

That looks like Goulds Sugarloaf. From the Cheyne Range?

Yes, from the high Point of The Cheyne Range.

It might be. And if it is, where would I have been?

On second thoughts - probably from the Overland Track near Lake Holmes - although it could have been a zoom off track from further out near Lake Ellen/McRae

Your first thought - whatever that may have been - might have been closer.

I don't think my first thought is any good.
So on third thoughts - from the Overland Track about 1 to 1.5 km south of Waterfall Valley turnoff.
There's an old photo of Barn from the old Cirque Hut which pretty much matches.

Yes, that's about it. Somewhere a little along thee track south of the huts.

Looks like Barn Bluff again, but this time from somewhere well to the east of the OT. Perhaps in the vicinity of Lake Andrews?

The spot I am on has the unofficial name of Mount Harnett, and yes, it overlooks Lake Andrews.
[The lake in view is Lake Ellen]

After working through my mind and lots of images eliminating Gould, Pelion West, the Acropolis, Thetis, Ossa and perhaps a few others, I stumbled onto a shot of Barn from Lake Will and realised the base matched.
It is curious that with all those dolerite faces, there are very few with such fresh boulder screes on them combined with the small cliff lines.
The vegetation suggested fagus groves.
But my shot was found late in my searching and I believe is the same angle on the face of Barn Bluff as NNWs - but hers was from much closer in to Barn.
This is an enlargement of the missing bit from my photo

Looks like a great area out around McRae/Ellen/Andrews, etc. I've got to get out there one of these days!

I'd better go find a photo... be right back.

Dixons? Somewhere near the Mt Jerusalem track perhaps.
That looks like a pad.

Not Dixons. But you're quite close.

Great guess bhbt - but I think this is of the Temple - probably from near the start of the track up it.

Near enough Eggs. It is the Temple from the opposite side to Dixons Kingdom. On the main Walls track, between the Temple Track junction and the Pool of Bethesda turn off.

Yes - I could match the skyline from a Pool of Bethesda shot.
Might be playing ping pong with this one:

Is that Lake Petrarch?

I've not visited many other lakes with a white sandy beach (and it's certainly not Cygnus). It's been a long time. I need to get back there one day.

Yes - I knew you had been there.
We had lovely sunshine as we approached the beach - but then all overcast when we were actually there.
I would like to visit again.

Top spot. I'd love to take my kids there one day, but I'm not sure I could get them through the bush bashing from the northern end from Byron Gap, or through the button grass plains with very little track left from the south.

Next...

This should be very easy indeed:

King Davids and Salome from somewhere near Damascus Gate, probably on the track up Solomons.

All your,s NNW.

It's actually taken from on the main track (or close to it... hard to tell under snow) from just a few metres up-hill from where my previous photo in the Game was taken (the one of the wallaby under the Temple).

Just two months earlier and facing a different direction.

This is a little less obvious, but there should be enough landmarks to get it.

It could be. Hadn't even noticed it. And by the way eggs, from you I expect a map with my position pinpointed to within 100m.

I am afraid I was greatly mistaken - no idea what that fall is.
This is quite hard - but lets start with Mt Oana - no map just yet.
