The dead bracken on Jenkin Hill catches the early morning light

Looking across to the north western fells

I've reached the snow. Looking south

Zooming in on Derwent Water

Skiddaw Little Man with its top in cloud, thats where I'm heading

A look back

Skiddaw Lesser Man

The fence between Little Man and Skiddaw. I just love the ice formations

Skiddaw's summit ridge

Skiddaw summit, no views today

The top gate as I head back down

Looking north east to Sale How

Lonscale Fell

The view south

Looking across to the Helvellyn range
