Winter Hill – 01 February

A cold, sunny, icy morning at first light and almost certainly the best part of the day because high winds with rain/sleet/snow are expected after midday. I wanted some of the morning’s sunshine for to practice some new tricks with a camera so I set out early for Winter Hill.

What a contrast with previous weeks – bright sunshine that was almost warm enough to melt the frost and ice but  not quite. Glorious nevertheless despite the sub zero temperatures, regrettably the forecast was correct and the heavy clouds, strong winds and rain weren’t far away. Normal service resumed!
