It was nice to see a bit of blue sky after a week of almost constant rain and it did look quite promising early on, but the skies soon darkened to bring things back to normal by lunchtime. This is a firm favourite of mine – a good fell walk that has most of the attributes required to be a good one without being too lengthy…and the main thing was that there wasn’t another soul to be seen.
I couldn’t resist a few shots of the Coniston fells from Torver on the way up there with the early sun illuminating the fells nicely.
