Yes, in the transition zone between the alpine plateau and the forest lower down.

The angle matches Pelion East, but the rock type seems Cathedral - so maybe Bishop Peak?

Looks like Pelion West, so viewed from somewhere between Twin Spires and Cathedral in the gap between Pelion East and Ossa?

I was trying to find the exact pool, and it is indeed halfway between Twin Spires & Cathedral

I had a quick look on google maps and thought I could spot something similar looking, and it was the only remaining place to really make sense! I feel like I stole this one a little. I'll wait for confirmation from Last I guess.

Cheers Last, it's beautiful up there.

Where was I for this lovely sky? Let me know if it doesn't work...

Looks like Wylds and Shakespeare in the horizon.

Are you on the KW range?

Can't see how you would get that angle on Wylds/Shakespeare and the rest of those ridges anywhere but the Spires range, or possibly the northern PoWs.
In fact, I have an almost identical horizon (minus the fancy sky) taken from False Dome. Your shot seems to be a bit further along the ridge, so I'll start with the Font.

And, with a little more digging through that folder - taken from the terraces just above the Font:

Not a game photo


I think the ridges line up nicely there.

It is indeed directly above The Font, but not on those terraces, and a bit higher up, which means it is on...

Well, I don't have a shot from Flame Peak with which to compare it, but there''s not much choice is there?

Last is a long way off. Graham nearly has it, but I want the name of what I am standing next to.
