Saturday 24th November 2012, 11.10am (day 457)
High Rigg is a low-altitude but craggy hill a few miles to the east of the town of Keswick. On the left of this shot, in the background, is Helvellyn, the third-highest mountain in England. The dark dimple in the middle is called Great How. The lake is Thirlmere, actually a reservoir. This shot was taken with a dark filter on, then I beefed up the highlights to bring out the sun; but this is more-or-less what it looked like on this November morning. A high haze in the sky allowed one to look straight into the sun, and brought out the last of autumn’s rich colours.
And, oh yeah, I’ve now only got 2 of the 214 Wainwright fells left to climb. I’ll get all the pictures up on my other blog tomorrow morning.
