2009 01 14 - Kentmere Pike, Goat Scar and Shipman Knotts  with Paul D.

The weather forecast promised us sunny periods and an 80% chance of cloud free tops but these were empty promises. It was a dull, cloudy day with poor visibility and no views at all from the fell tops. To make matters worse I discovered at the start of the walk that my digital camera's battery was completely dead. The photographs shown here were taken with my 2 megapixel mobile phone camera and are not too bad considering. We did of course still manage to enjoy the walk despite the drawbacks and finished the day with a couple of very satisfying pints at the Duke William in Staveley.

Plant life on a stone wall


Looking back down as we head into the clouds


Broken wall as we approach Kentmere Pike's summit


Frozen pond along the wall


The frosty summit of Kentmere Pike


The trig point on the other side of the wall

The only photogenic member of the party

And the last shot a little further along the road
