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

My Dad Taking In The View From Helvellyn. The Lake District 1

My dad at the top of a snow-covered Helvellyn taking in the views as the sun started to go down

This was from my first proper adventure with a DSLR. My dad and I decided to climb up Helvellyn as the Lake District had received a lot of snow. We started down in Patterdale and made our way up to the hole in the wall. Walking past red tarn before making our way up Swirrel edge. Most of the snow had turned into ice at the top so we followed deep icy footprints for most of the climb which made it a little trickier.

We stopped at the top for a little while near the shelter at the top. My dad stood up to take in the view back towards where we live as the sun was starting to set. As pretty as it was, that was a sign to get off the mountain before it was dark
