It is Tarn Shelf - but not Newdegate.

Rock type looks like quartzite, peak under the moon looks like Adamsons. Eastern Arthurs?

Very overcast when we were there - but the near cliff line matches the outlook from Hanging Lake camp site.

That's the one Eggs - taken from one of the tent platforms at Hanging Lake. This was a moon rising. Moments before it was almost blood red.

It sure is! You do earn it by getting to Hanging Lake in the first place, though. :wink:

Hmm. Maybe these tarns aren't as distinctive as I thought. Does that matter, guys?

7 people so far haven't worked out the cryptic clue in the last post. A bit Pretty obscure, but I thought it might help somebody.

Ah, the really obscure cryptic clue writer got it, no trouble!
It is gorgeous there - in good weather, of course. Spectacular area when the scoparia is in flower, as it was when we visited. Probably wouldn't have got around to going if I wasn't collecting peaks. :)

Wasn't scoparia season when I was there, but I did get one of the most spectacular sunsets ever, due to some nice stormclouds.

Thanks for putting up an easy one. Not that I'm likely to return the favour...

Except it is. ILUV posted a very similar one on 09/10

Edit: Oops, actually SBS's post on 09/10. Thanks Gayet for pointing out my idiocy.

OK, now, how about the new shot? I can guarantee it's not D'Arcy Bluff or Wentworth Hills.

Definitely not Tor. In fact, DArcy/Wentworth is closer.

You surely didn't make it easy, nnw!!
A few rapid-fire random guesses to narrow it down may be the way, in the absence of even obscure cryptic clues. Unless there was a really obscure one I missed.
Mt Field West, which it isn't. But is it closer?

A lot closer. In fact, I was there later this same day. By which time the fog had lifted.
