So, Nerd65,

Is the idea that everyone starts posting pictures of various mountain summits they have been on?

If so I approve!

Yes, that's the idea. I've had that picture around for a while and suddenly thought of starting a thread in the photography section for mountain summits.

Aussiestormfreak, G'day. Thank you. Please enjoy another summit.

The summit of Byangee Mountain (aka Byangee Wall) from the summit of The Castle. In the Budawang Wilderness, the Great Escarpment, NSW South Coast.



Another view of Byangee Mountain summit, with the maternal breast of Dithol (aka Pigeon House Hill) keeping watch. It is always, either misty or smokey, in The Misty Mountains.




Warren.
