That makes more sense. But I'm doing well to recognise Pyramid straight away so it's still a win.

I love just throwing out random observations about some of these images. For instance, the foreground scrub looks like the stuff on top of Maurice.

My first thought was Inglis, but try as I might, I can't make the background fit.

Thanks. It's the only flat top I could line up with buildings and a long ridge in front of St Vals.

Now, something a little bit different for a summit marker.

Hadn't seen it or anything similar. It piqued my interest so I googled it to death and ended up at the site for the co. that constructed it.
So it's the BOM weather radar (C-band Doppler radar) for Hobart. Similar ones in QLD at Weipa and Mt Isa, and on South Goulburn Island NT.
And the Terrey Hills one up here I use online that looks like a teed up golf ball. Dunno why it never occurs to me to visit some of these things.

And on we go:

Did you check if it was switched on? I'm not sure it works properly.

Hmmm your vague trend continues John.... reminds me a bit of Webster though?

No it doesn't seem to be doing anything. Ours is working though :). Not that it matters, I'm not going anywhere atm.
Testing your knowledge of obscurity Mark :wink:. Not Webster, I'm a fair distance from Mt Field area.
This tarn is unnamed, but very close to one or more things that that are.
Small clue in the background if you can find a wider shot.

Is that the little tarn between Shadow and Forgotten? Kind of looks like Little Hugel in the top right corner.

On one of my photos I have it labelled "Tarn near Shadow Lake".
I vaguely thought it was the one shortly before Shadow rather than betwixt them, but we did visit both lakes and Little Hugel.
So I reckon you'll be correct NNW, and if not that's near enough anyway. All yours.

Figures. After posting wasn't sure which side of Shadow it was, just know it's the one I've only ever seen frozen.

And while we're talking about things being frozen, where is this?
