Weather Window

Thursday 11th Nov.2010
                                    How can three days be so different weather wise ? Monday was cold with gales and driving rain and sleet and on the higher hills in our Pennines.... snow, today we're back to the same old weather except it's milder this morning it's 7c. Yesterday was a gem of a day with almost unbroken sunshine, very little wind and excellent visibility, so Audrey and myself did a brisk walk to the top of Pendle Hill 1831 ft, we were rewarded with extensive views of the surrounding Pennine fells and clear views of the Lake District mountains and these mountains are at least 50 miles away. This gave me the opportunity of trying out the telephoto end of my new camera.

                              Pendle Hill from Newchurch in Pendle

                           The shortest route to the top

                 The distant central mountains of the Lake District

                         Telephoto of the Eastern Lake District Fells

                                     Telephoto of Ingleborough

                                   Telephoto of Pen-y- Ghent

                             Me looking rather dishevelled

                   Looking S.E. over the towns of Nelson & Colne

                          A final view across the Ribble Valley

                          Back down to the village of Barley

  2. Great views, David. I particularly like the one with Audrey leaning against the stone wall looking across Ribble Valley and the one over-looking Nelson & Colne. Cheers, Wilma
