Mist Over Pendle

Tues. 18th Jan 2011
           Got up this morning accessed the weather and thought that with the thick mist in the valley conditions on the top of Pendle Hill could be suitable for the sighting of the Broken spectre, a rare spectacle where the sun casts a shadow of yourself surrounded by a halo onto the mist below. Conditions quickly changed and low cloud advanced from the west, the valley mist dispersed rapidly leaving low cloud on the tops but I did manage to get a few atmospheric shots as the low cloud dispersed when we were descending from the summit.

 This was the Brocken spectre photo that I was after, it was taken on Wild Boar Fell about 3 years ago on a walk from Garsdale Head to Kirby Stephen on a lads day out.

          Back to today

                                          Mist over Pendle

                                  Bad visibility and temp 2c


                                    A lucky break in the cloud

 10 minutes later brilliant sunshine, it's amazing how quickly the weather changes in the Pennines


  1. Looks like you had a good walk, the weather here is being kind to us at the moment, we are just off out for our couple of hours.

  2. Absolutely stunning scenery David! The mist on the moors is very atmospheric.
