NOT REALLY A GAME: Where or what is this?/I might be lost

Postby beardless » Mon 07 Jan, 2019 5:51 pm

Have you ever looked through old photos and forgotten where you were when you took them?

Have you ever found a bunch of old slides of bushwalks from a relative but don't know what they depict?

Have you taken a photo of something that needs identification?

Are you actually lost and have taken a photo and have an internet connection and want some advice (which may not be correct) about how to find your way back to wherever you need to go?

This topic could be for those types of scenarios where the person posting the photo would like some identification information.

Admins please feel free to move to an appropriate sub forum or delete if you consider this is ridiculous

This is a great idea. I have sometimes found an old uncaptioned photo and been tempted to post it to the guessing competition page in the hope that someone else will identify it for me.

I actually did this once with a photo of my family when I was a kid. I knew which walk I had been on that trip, but I just couldn't fit what was in that picture with the correct location. Eventually Eggs solved it for me, and also pointed out that it was a mirror image. Turns out it had been scanned from a slide but the wrong way around, which was probably why I struggled to figure it out myself.

Thanks for starting this thread, beardless. Here's a photo that I'd like to have identified.

It's from 1987. I didn't take the photo, but was given it by someone who was on a trip with me.

It's most likely West MacDonnell NP, but it could also be Sturt NP. If it's West MacDonnell, perhaps it's looking southwards, across to the north side of the Heavitree Range, but what part? What do you think?

I think I'd better get out to both of them!
