I don't remember seeing one between Mersey Crag and Clumner, although I do agree it's lovely up there.
There's a different Abel around here, but it's not the nearest landmark.

I wondered if there were more of the same. Do you know what they are? This is the one I know:

Not Ben Lomond. First guess was closer. In fact, you might be able to see yours from here if you climbed this one and had a nice long lens.

Something to do with Hydro 'exploration". I've seen similar items in the Snowies. There was another maybe 20 metres closer to the landmark in question, but it had burnt down, fallen over and was trying to rust back into the ground.

If it was, what do you think the named very-much-not-a-mountain landmark might be?

Thanks NNW, when I examined the map I wondered why no firearm witticisms had been used already :).

Now, that picture. Is it in Mt Field National Park? Is that Lake Belton? From the slopes of Tyenna Peak?

It's not Belton or Tyenna but you're in the right locality Graham. Just need to set your sights differently :).

Close enough eggs, and yes to the zoom. From vague memory I'm somewhere near Johnston Tarn.

More than generous John.
That will be Lake Webster below with Davis Lookout the high point at back.
I mistakenly thought the LHS block was part of Mt Bridges - but it will be the next block north below the Lake Newdegate Track
Which places you about midway along the Tarn Shelf, close to James Tarn.

More importantly, before the fires.
They're still working on it, but at least it's starting to look like a track again.

Where has this monstrosity been plonked?

it's one of the tourism tas sculptures I think, looks like it's the one near the sentinels.

I would have accepted Tarn Shelf eggs, so your answer was fine. I also mistakenly thought Mt Bridges, and In hindsight I'm correcting again after reviewing my photos, timestamps and Listmap.
I believe I may be next to Backhouse Tarn, based on this I took a couple of minutes later. Also lines up with a wider shot I took towards Davis Lookout.
