I haven’t been posting lately, life gets in the way sometimes, so the camera has been pretty much mothballed. This shot, of an early morning start to a hike in Derbyshire’s Peak District three weeks ago, was taken with my phone camera. It turned out far better than I had expected it to. The fog and mist, which was very widespread, soon melted away to leave a clear, crisp autumn day, perfect for a walk.
This was taken on a gloriously sunny day in Cumbria (the Lake District) as we hiked up alongside Shoulthwaite Gill. At this point we were close to Iron Crag and looking back down the valley towards Skiddaw and Blencathra. From here the walk became more rugged and the path disappeared entirely, but despite the uneven – and sometimes precarious – state of the ground, we had a thoroughly satisfying day on the hills without encountering another soul.
