I started the climb up Fleetwith Pike in relatively clear sky’s but by the time I got to the top visibility was down to about ten yards. The low mist and cloud seemed to be moving quite quickly and with the odd star seen through fleeting gaps it seemed worthwhile setting up the tripod and hanging around to see what would happen. Luckily the cloud started to thin a little and I managed to expose a number of shots as the rising sun illuminated the fell tops. Unfortunately it didn’t last long and with the clag thickening up again I ended up descending to the car in driving snow. The fells left to right are Hay Stacks (foreground), Pillar (background), High Crag, High Stile and Red Pike. The top end of Buttermere at Peggy’s Bridge can just be seen in the bottom right hand corner.
