Langdale Fell Race 2013


What a day – Julie and I trotted up Rossett Ghyll to Angle Tarn and then had a look at a couple of routes up to Ore Gap and on to Bow Fell sumit.  Lots of opportunities to get some shots of the racers.  We then left the race route and headed down the Band – lovely runnable route : )

Night Sky on Winter Hill


Probably the last Tuesday on paths on the moors next week will be mostly on the tarmac road up to the mast and down as we prefer not to use torches.  Cloud cover for most of the run, but as we approached the summit a bit of a break in the cloudbase gave some interest in the sky.  Good outing for just under seven miles : )
