Wishing you a Happy New Year from Pendle hill

Frid. 31st Dec. 2010.
                         Looking out of our bedroom window this morning towards Pendle Hill it looked quite inviting with it's layer of mist, it looked so atmospheric so a quick dash to the summit to blow the cobwebs away and get in the last walk of 2010.

         Looking across to the hill in the mid-distance, that's where I live

                                       Striding to the summit

                  Temperature on the summit a relatively warm 3c

Looking towards Longridge Fell, Beacon Fell and on the right Parlick Hill in the Bowland fells

                                   Towards the misty coast

                           Looking N.E. to the Yorkshire Dales

                               Back to the village of Barley

                            Mist forming below Cracoe Pinnacle

  1. It's BEAUTIFUL countryside David. Where you live.... well, it looks a right picture. No wonder you enjoy walking there so much.

    Happy New Year! :)

  2. Happy New Year to you, David! I have enjoyed following you around on all your hikes during the past year. You have such a good eye, it is a treat to see your photos.

    Here's to a happy, healthy 2011,

  3. Happy New Year...looking forward to hearing about more of your walks and seeing the lovely pictures.

  4. Thank-you David, and a very Happy New Year to you too :-D

    What a brilliant way to end the year. You pick some very scenic areas for your walks but even on your doorstep you have wonderful views to appreciate and wander through.

    Wishing you both many more enjoyable walks and wild orchid sightings throughout 2011 :-D
