Guardians loom as quite a wall from that angle.

Yes, an angle most of us aren't used to seeing.

Well, that there pointy thing to the right of the sun is Fedders, and it appears to be a familiar WArthurian-type angle but with some of your shots, in the words of Stevie Ray Vaughan, that don't mean a thing . . . in fact, the angle looks to be a bit more easterly, so maybe from Schnells?

To get that angle on Federation and Geeves Bluff I would have thought you were somewhere in the Western Arthurs. I don't want to get in trouble for being too generic so I'll just say High Moor.

I think it's further west than High Moor. Maybe the saddle between Orion and Sirius

Correct Rick - on the saddle between Orion & Sirius
High Moor is in the view - along with both Pegasus, Scorpio, etc

Curious - lots of views and no attempts?
That saddle in the distance has a very distinctive chock stone boulder tower

There is a body of water on the far right in the distance. It has a name and it's not a lake.
- I never noticed the chockstone. Once I got to that saddle the clouds closed in completley

I found the chockstone quite visible from a number of directions.
Its quite a big block wedged in there.

So I presume this is about to traverse below Procyon towards Square Lake in the Western Arthurs.
My photo location on the saddle below Sirius ahead.

That looks like Eros. Are you on the side of Hyperion?
