That's a stunner!
Where is the shot from?....not from your place, I know.
The only clear view MEL's skyline like that is from SkyHigh...or working the zoom to death.
Looks like you weren't too high up though...

You should know better.
The hill immediately above the FTG quarry about 300 metres from where you used to live.

Used to ride up that lane to a tiny flat spot at the end, right above the quarry.
Sometimes there was even some folks camping there for a night/ weekend...

Could be just a Gmaps goof, too...

Squizz and Crusty will have memories of that top-elbow of Jean St., trying to maneuver the tripods around the rocks and washouts
