Dow Crag. Goats Water .Easy Gulley. The Lake District

Exploring easy gulley on the side of Dow crag I found these rocks shaped in a finger and thumb formation creating a window with a view over towards Coniston water. The sun was in front of me which meant the rocks were turned into a silhouette in the photograph. The sun was lighting up part of Coniston Old Man lighting up half of the scenes which helped to add a little bit of contrast. If you look closely, you’ll see a couple of people down on the track.

A snow capped Coniston Old Man lit up by the moon light

The forecast was for a clear night so I decided to do something different and head up to Coniston Old Man to photograph the stars. I climbed up in the last of the sunlight watching the sunset over Goats water and then climbing the rest of the way by moonlight.

There was a light coating of snow on the last quarter of the walk, by snow I mean ice. Once I got to the top I realised that the photograph that I wanted over Dow Crag wouldn’t work as the gap between the top of the mountain and the stars was too big, plus there were too many clouds. Instead, I had a look at the view leading up to the top of the old man. The moon lit up the ground leading up the top and the Cairn stood out on the Horizon.

Coniston water was glowing from the moonlight to the left and the sun was setting on the right. It wasn’t the view I had in mind but this was a lot better. Everything lined up at the right time

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
