    Spent last week in the Lake District for a bit of R&R

    Convinced the wife that getting up at 4am and walking up Cat Bells with head torches on would be a good idea :)

    Not been up a fell before - was quite surprised at the amount of scrambles we had to make up rocks. I had assumed that it would be a path all the way up (as it is classed as an "easy" fell).

    We climbed up through thick fog for quite a long time - eventually we managed to break out of the top of it. The views made the walk up worthwhile :D

    Sure looks like it… and the little silhouette gives a good
    sense of the dimensions. Cool view Dave! (y)

    Thanks Kodiak :) I am glad we were not the only ones up there as I agree that the other walker really adds to the image

    Great stuff. I've walked up Catbells many times and never had a view like that. But then I've never done it at 4am with a head torch. Maybe I've just learned something...

    Thanks Stewart - Lots of people were coming onto the fell as we left. None of them knew what they had missed either :)

    Catbells is easy - relative to all the other fells in the Lakes!

    Anyway, well done and you got a cracking shot of an inversion.

    Mega. Great view and photograph. I like the rocky foreground as well. I remember my first cloud inversion - I was gobsmacked by what I was seeing. It’s the best that Mother Nature can offer I think.
