Looks like the church of the good shepherd on the shores on Lake pukaki? Nice to see it without a hundred other people in the picture!

I'll give you that one. It is the church of the Good Shepherd but at Lake Tekapo not Pukaki, which is nearby. We did drive the length of Pukaki on the way to Mt Cook. Yes it was a rare moment with almost no one near the church. Over to you JM.

Woops, got my lakes mixed up. Cheers John.

Staying in the same country, this next one should be pretty quick. What lake and peak am I looking at here?

Nope, not Lake Harris sorry.

I'll put a clue up tonight if no one has guessed it by then.

I gave this to jrg.
Unless you had been to Mt Kenya or studied the limited maps I could find, it would be hard to say much more than Mt Kenya.

Mt Kenya is a highly eroded/glaciated volcanic peak. It is almost directly on the Equator and has glaciers.
There are 7 U shaped valleys radiating off the sides of the mountain and numerous tarns.
We approached on the Sirimon route via Liki North and exited via the Naro Moru route.
There are at least 10 craggy peaks in the summit area [and more interesting crags on the radiating ridgelines]- but trekkers climb to the 3rd highest - Point Lenana at 4985m (16,355 feet)
Because of altitude, you take your time getting up. Our walk was over 6 days and we were on top for sunrise on day 4.
This was taken on the summit day when we took a long route back to our base at Shiptons Camp.
We descended the ridge off track to the Tooth and traversed the Summit Circuit pass to Simba Col before descending past Lower Simba Tarn to Shiptons Camp.

It is not in Scotland (but not a bad guess - it does remind me of Scottish mountains).

Do I need to give another clue to keep this going?

The mountain which this was taken from has a wall going up to its summit. You can see other parts of the wall on the top RH corner and left top of the photo.

Those stone walls are features of both Lakes District and Snowdownia.
Can't place anywhere in Lakes District, so tending to think it might be in Snowdownia

Hi everyone,
It is not in Snowdonia or Hadrian's Wall.
As another hint, the mountain is in the UK.

It doesn't look green enough for England, but I keep getting a nagging feeling that the rocks on the high ridge might be Crinkle Crags.

Well done. Taken on the way down from the summit of Slieve Donard. It was very cold up there that day (about -6º!)

No need for the question mark Eggs, it absolutely is Loughrigg Fell, a little gem.

I'm looking for the name of the Pass, and I think the rock in view is something to do with it.

I can sort of match it to Kirkstone Pass, Lakes District.
