Lostock AC – Haggis Run 02 Jan

We were lucky enough to be invited to join Lostock AC on their 2011 Haggis Run over Winter Hill. The only thing we were fairly sure about was it would us,rather than the haggis, that would be running. High clouds and considerable clarity combined to provide extensive views, in particular, along the North Wales coast to the mountains of Snowdonia. These are a little far away to photograph but Fiddlers Ferry power station added drama to the sky.

  1. ...and like that the snow was gone!

    Haggis...hmmm yum! I wonder if there is a market for that as an ultra fuel?

  2. Much as I like haggis I have some doubts about it catching on as an ultra fuel :)
