Despite the fact that it was the May bank holiday, careful route choice meant that we avoided the crowds that would inevitably be ticking off the popular routes on such a gloriously sunny day. After parking at Haweswater we made our way onto the fell tops and meandered around looking for some good view points from which to take some big mountain images. We arrived at the summit of Ill Bell and with sun starting to get lower in the sky the light was bound to improve as the evening progressed, with the TS24mm and a 0.6 soft grad on the 6d I knocked out a couple of shots.
A great day to out, and a couple of images that might make it into next years calendar, what could be better....
