23/52 Islands Amongst the Clouds

By sherlob    
Later than anticipated for reasons I won't bore you with. Taken a couple of weeks ago on a very early morning visit to Rushup Edge. As I approached my chosen location I could see that the mist was higher than anticipated and decided to head for higher ground. My guess was that Mam Tor was also likely to be enshrouded and having wanted to try a new location anyway, I opted to head towards the opposite direction and higher position of Lords Seat. This image looks back the path towards the Great Ridge during a brief break in the cloud. In the distant background the suit of Mam Tor momentarily cleared, but it was only moments before it was engulfed in the wave of cloud that was encroaching. I couldn't make up my reading the colour version or the mono - the colour seemed to lack a bit of punch so the mono has won out. However, tbh I have over thought the processing of this and just needed to move on!

All the best,

Yep. That takes me there. And it invites me to go further, despite some trepidation...
