Running track on Dow crag. The Lake District

“It’s a bit wild isn’t it” he said as he ran down past me whilst descending Dow Crag. He was right, it was the kind of wind that instantly gives you a headache but for some reason, your legs keep walking. After a few minutes, I looked back to see where he’d got to. He was heading down to the crossroads clearly marked out between the snow towards the Walna Scar road.

Down to the right, you could see into the Duddon valley where the fields were green whilst the tops were covered in snow

Herdwick Sheep Walking Up Dow Crag

Herdwick sheep walking to the top of Dow crag as the clouds roll over the Scafell range. I wasn’t expecting there to be any clouds on the climb up but the closer I got to the top of Dow Crag the more clouds appeared.

I spotted these sheep as I got close to the top and you could see the Scafell range off in the distance so I crept up and got this photo of the sheep making there way to the top

Dow crag with the Isle of Man in the distance

Stood at the top of Coniston old man looking towards the Isle of Man which fits in the gap on Dow Crag. This is the clearest I’ve seen the view from the top of Coniston Old man. I liked how the shape of the Isle of man sticks up above the sea in a similar shape to the gap between Dow crag and the hills behind. It’s like the Island was taken out and flipped over.

The sun had started to go down so there was a faint glow in the sky as it sets to the right of the Island. The low light turned some of the closer fells into silhouettes simplifying the foreground

Walking Along Dow Crag Panorama

Looking over at Dow Crag from Coniston Old Man as the sun was starting to set. There was a cloud inversion which filled the sky as far as you could see. I spotted a group of people making there way over the horizon with little stick figure silhouettes standing out on top of the hill in the clouds occasionally. I waited until some of the people were in a gap so that they stood out and then I got there silhouettes standing out.

Walking The Sunset Skyline Through The Clouds. Dow Crag

I decided to head up to Coniston Old Man in the English Lake District. The forecast wasn’t great as there was supposed to be a lot of clouds. I’ve climbed this mountain 25-30 times now though so I figured there would be less chance of getting lost as I tend to navigate these by recognising rocks

Once I got to Goats water the views started to clear up and the sun came out, I kept going with the intention of dropping down to the mines. Once I got to the top I got talking to some other walkers and we ended up sitting around watching the cloud inversions and watching the sunset.

The sunsets between Dow Crag and Scafell Pike, which meant the front of Dow crag was turned into a silhouette. There was a large group of people walking down the crag so I waited until they were in line with Harter Fell and got a photo of them on the horizon line with the cloud inversion, coloured by the sunset filling the sky behind them

Low Water Below The Clouds On Coniston Old Man

Looking out over the cloud inversion from Coniston Old man, Coniston and Low water were under these clouds. On the climb up it didn’t look like there would be any view as I was surrounded by clouds. It all changed at Goats water and the sun started to make an appearance.

The higher I climbed the nicer the weather got. This changed my plans I was expecting to go to the mines but instead, I stayed at the top to watch the sunset. The clouds returned as the sun went down filling the sky behind Dow Crag and over Coniston. You could only faintly see the track leading to Low water and the slightest of blues beneath the clouds

Brocken Spectre Over Goats Water. The Lake District

I wasn’t sure which hill to climb between Coniston old man and Dow Crag so I flipped a coin and went with Dow Crag. The plan was to catch the sunset over the crossroads looking out over the bay. It was quite a promising start as there weren’t any clouds in the sky.

As I got to the last stretch the clouds rolled in, which did help to add a bit of atmosphere. This soon changed into being completely surrounded with no views. I waited at the top for a little while clutching at straws on what to do. Fortunately, my stubbornness paid off and the sun broke through the clouds. A brocken spectre appeared above Goats water. It was awesome, I’ve never seen one of these before
