Sometimes photography must lose priority to peace and the outdoors.
Today I found myself on my own so I decided to venture into the heart of the Lake District for a gentle hike around one of my favourite places: Great Langdale.
It seems I can’t stay away from the fearsome crags of the Langdale Pikes, but on this occasion I decided to venture away from them, and most of the people, towards the higher peaks of Crinkle Crags (859 m/2,818 ft), with no particular goal in mind other then to enjoy the splendour and solitude.
The shot above was taken off a path called The Band, which quickly ascends from the valley floor and offers increasingly stupendous views of the Langdale Pikes, particularly Pike o’ Stickle (709 m/2,326 ft)
