Innominate Tarn was Alfred Wainwright’s favourite location in the Lake District, and unsurpringly so. The irregular-shaped little tarn is ringed by a circle of small crags that are in turn circled by loftier fells. The result is an idyllic scene.
The photo shows the view south towards Great Gable. Great Gable’s partner, Green Gable, is peeking out from under the mist to its left. To the right the Beckhead Pass between Great Gable and Kirk Fell acts as a perfect frame for the distant peak of Scafell Pike.
The fells are catching the last light of the day before I spent the night wild camping on Haystacks.
