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

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.

Cloud Inversion Over Coniston. Panorama From Coniston Old Man

I climbed up onto Coniston Old man with the idea of going to the mines to photograph them in the clouds,  I didn’t really think that through though as I climbed up the wrong side of the mountain past goats water and up Goats Hause.

At the top, I met a man who had set up a radio and was talking to people from all over the world. We got talking and I ended staying at the top for the sunset which also coincided with a cloud inversion. The clouds surrounded us leaving a cloud inversion over Coniston and Low water

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

Reflections On Coniston Water. The Lake District

We went to Coniston water to watch the sunrise, but we soon realised that we’d got it all wrong and sun was going to go down behind us. We stayed anyway as it was a frosty morning and it felt like the light was going to be nice. The water was still so the reflections of the surrounding fells were popping out of the water. The clouds had taken on some of the colours from the sunrise, and they looked like they were crawling over the fell tops which still had some snow left clinging to the tops.

Low Water Under The Clouds. Coniston Old Man

Stood near the top of Coniston Old man in the English Lake District looking down to where Low Water usually is, but the cloud inversion had filled the sky and the sunset was adding a little bit of a flow to the background. You can faintly see low water below the clouds in the foreground. The clouds were hugging the side of the mountains whilst the occasional peak stook up through the clouds, adding some dark contrast into the white clouds.
