Thanks 7334. I spent a weekend Ghost Gunzelling on that line only a year ago when The Gorgeous One I live with decided to have a Nurse's "convention" over the weekend. Best that I head for the hills. I remember that gate now.

That was a good one.

I'll post one up this arvo.

Somewhere on the Cullarin range not too far above the middle road bridge looking down from the old Hume Highway?

Yeah! I think I'll have to give that. I took the shot from Razorback 1st so that photographed point is as 7334 described.

Here is the uncropped shot. Sun wasn't in my favour and I would have had to get up too early to improve on the light.




EDIT. It does look better than that, though, on my computer.

I'm impressed that 7334 worked that out so precisely and so quickly.

I expect that someone will work this one out just as quickly but I like the shot so what the hell.

Going back to McAlister I went and found the location because of a story my father told me yonks ago.  His mother came from the area north of Laggan and in the immediate post war (WW2) era he spent some time there on the family property.  On one of his visits it was arranged that someone would pick him up from the train at McAlister.  He duly got off the train one winter's morning about 5am and he described it as the coldest, bleakest place he had ever encountered.  I recollect that as a kid the weather reports used to regularly name Crookwell and Nimitabell as the coldest places in the state so I well believed him.

Anyway, back to where was I.
