    You pretty much got it. The photo is from the upper slopes of Ben Nevis. The water in the distance is Loch Linnhe.

    Darn! I should have guessed that just because it's the obvious point in the area, but I didn't recognize the peak from that angle.

    Here's another one:

    I'm sorry the image is small. When I upload from a URL I get messages saying "remote file too large" until I downsize to that point. When I upload from my computer the image gets downsized. It's been a few years since I've posted photos on this site. I think you can see the salient features well enough. I see now that if you click on it you do get a larger image.

    So is that Lochan Meall an t-Suidhe in the foreground?

    I spent a summer at Gordonstoun in Elgin, and we explored a little of the highlands, although the big treat was sailing the west coast (seeing as our trip to Ness yielded no sightings;).

    It's clearly Mexico or South America. My first guess would be Orizaba in Mexico, mainly because I have been there, but it's a little too rounded.

    If it's not Orizaba then it has to be South America. I'm going to keep looking, but I'm at the point where I will be googling known peaks.

    Hopefully somebody else will get in on this.

    It's not Orizaba. Think in terms of the fact that it has snow on top and yet it's in an extremely dry area.

    The location is on the border of the driest desert in the world. Of the mountains on that border, it is the most statistically noteworthy in a couple of respects.

    Licancabur comes to mind, but the shape seems wrong. Parinacota and Sairecabur are probably more likely candidates.

    This mountain is higher than any of those three.
