That's the one. Square Lake from the terrace part way up Procyon Peak.

That interesting rock feature atop the cliff on the other side of Square Lake was visible and recognisable from as far away as West Portal from memory.

Your turn Graham.

A fairly unmistakable lake.
Where was I (back in about 1972?)

Looking at Mueller and the needles from somewhere on The Thumbs perhaps?

Close, but there was a river between me and The Thumbs.

What mountain did I watch Monday morning's sunrise from?

Olympus!

Although I'm surprised at just how far south of East the sunrise is in that photo. I've just checked and yes, it rises at 119° Southeast today, and gets as far around as 124° Southeast around the solstice (from Hobart). (I should know this from where I see it rise from my house, but I've just never taken note of just how far South of East it actually gets.)

Yeah I was genuinely surprised as well to see where the sun was coming up over the horizon. When I looked at the southern part of Olympus, I couldn't help but feel like I was looking in a southerly direction, when in fact it's more SE.
But yeah, you're on the money, so it's over to you.

It is an amazing view up there at any time. That must have been great to watch the Sun coming up right over the southern peak!

OK, next shot... Where was I?

Trying to identify that mountain. Try Byron Gap.

That's the one. Taken on the way up the south west side of Byron Gap just after leaving my camp site and on my way up Mt Olympus.

Your turn Graham.

Thanks. It's been a few years since I've been to either place.

If that's Cape Hauy, then perhaps you're out near Mt Fortescue? Been a while since I was around there, so I can't really remember what the views are like.

Given the number of guesses that's near enough. It is Cape Hauy from the 2km+ section of boarwalk near Perdition Pons.

Hermione? From very near the place I hit the upper plateau. Great spot to camp.
