It was wet and wild this morning and there was no way I was going up on any fells! If it wasn’t for the ‘gruesome twosome’ needing a walk, I think I would have turned over and had another 40 winks. Instead, we had an exploration of Torver Common and there are some really fantastic views from here (in drier weather anyway) not 5 minutes from the road. I thought it best not to use my main camera given the extreme conditions, so I used a compact I have which at least allows some manual control. I have put some of the settings used on for those interested in photography as I often get asked about them.
