This day started very unpromisingly as I parked in the Rigg Beck Valley in the murk, barely able to see 100 metres in front of me. On hiking up Rowling End things didn’t improve either. It was only when climbing up the last pull to the summit of Causey Pike that I finally got above the cloud and what a view!
The mist ebbed and flowed like a sea, sometimes showing the full ridge, sometimes hiding everything. This was my favourite photograph from the day: taken from Scar Crags with Causey Pike looking like the spine of a sea monster.
In the distance the distinctive shape of Blencathra can be seen on the left and to the right is the rounded top of Clough Head.
