Over the stile and then on to Helvellyn by 

Taken with a Canon 50D, Sigma 17-70 lens at 30mm, F11, shutter speed 1/100 second, ISO200, processed in Photoshop

Last Saturday we went for a walk up a small fell called Black crag (323 m (1,059 ft)) in the Lake District. The weather was cold but very clear which meant you could see for miles. This shot was taken at the top of Black crag the snowy peak in the centre of the shot in the distance is Helvellyn (950 metres (3,117 ft)) which is one of the most popular and climbed hills in the Lake District.

    Superb image Shaun and good use of the stile, Helvellyn looks really cold and exposed from this angle! I looked at it from Thirlmere last week and it was looking stuning!

  • Cheers David mate, it was in some ways too nice, a few clouds would not have gone amiss, some people are never satisfied!! lol!!

    Hi Shaun,
    We’ll be up on the 5th June but I’ll be walking the coast to coast so probably won’t be able to catch up with everypne, unless you fancy doing a section of it ??
