Low cloud and an overnight thaw
changed the scenery,
from pure white
to patch work.
Short winter days
meant the full horseshoe
would turn to a gallop.
A short circuit up from Grasmere, with a slight deviation to Alcock Tarn
Cloud thinning to shine,
drifting over Rydal and Hart Crag,
adding a touch of atmosphere to Great Rigg.
Hiding the valleys then quickly bringing Easedale tarn to within an arm’s reach.
Fickle as ever, the cloud couldn’t keep away
Fairfield in Fog
and all but obliterated Cumbria from view.
Drifting tantalisingly over Seat Sandal
and Grisedale Tarn.
Then the odd glimmer of light
heralding the colour on Grisedale Hause, and the trek down into the valley.
