early morning mistiness with sun just hitting Blencathra in the distance.
climbing higher and looking back down the mist is building :)
using 300mm lens to show the dramatic mini cloud inversion building over st johns in the vale.
the full view :) amazing standing here watching it building and flowing into/over thirlmere!
i am seeing some very atmospheric conditions , taking loads of images as i climb steadily upwards:)
zooming in on Thirlmere , the colours are starting to look good.
as i climb to the top of the crags i get my first view towards the Coniston fells, unfortunately no cloud inversion but the low mist looks wonderful.

Looking down Swirral edge with a superb looking sky:) a great day to be up in the mountains.
