Walking in weather

After a fellwalk, when you finally reach your destination, along top of one of the fells or a ridge route, one can see for miles and miles, to Scotland, to the Irish Sea -- if the day is bright. And even if there are clouds, the brightness can still there and perhaps visibility can be even better.

But as the Lake District is one of the wettest climates outside the tropics, a walker is just as likely to encounter bad weather. Of course, walking in weather can make an excursion more memorable . . . such as one Sue and I had on Helvellyn.

Technical note:  The mist photos need "millions" of colors for best viewing. Also, the background for this series of "Walking in Weather," is taken from a closeup of one of several photos (taken on a clearer day) of wind-blown snow-ice along the top of Helvellyn.
