January fells under a hazy winter sun
This is what Saturdays in January were made for.
The first sunrise of the year from Skiddaw above Keswick.
Intimations of winter; The first icing sugar dusting of snow on the fells above the valley.
A Saturday morning and a bit of an afternoon spent wandering the fells around Honister Pass, well, somebody had to as there didn’t seem to be any other bugger around today. Honister will be familiar to many of the bike riders of the North of England and even beyond although nothing with wheels was going up there this morning and a hundred years of evolution of transport technology was briefly rendered completely obsolete by the soft gentle silence of the early morning snow.
