It was dull and grey this morning in the Duddon Valley for my ascent of Harter Fell, yet at the same time it was very clear. Over to the east I could see the blue sky moving across and of course as soon as I came down to valley level, it was everywhere – a lovely day. My camera suffered a few further battle scars as well today as near the beginning of the walk, Angus pulled at the lead when I had the camera in my hand and sent it crashing to the floor. Now it has a big crack in the screen and on the case, looks like I’ll have to get the tape out to keep it together! At least it still works (for now) though…
