'Scar'red Sunrise

By MrsS    
Good Afternoon - - hope you haven't missed me too much Wink

The Boss and I are just home from a fabulous double trip up to Twisleton Scar - a flippin' long walk, which we did both yesterday afternoon and again this morning!

However, I have to say it was well worth the trip on both occasions - particularly this morning - getting up with that haul up to the top was a tad of a challenge!

We had spent a bit of time yesterday locating "Mel's Rock", so were able to head straight there for sunrise. No snow, and the light disappeared VERY quickly behind a bank of cloud, but what we got was a wee bit nice! (Well, I thought so, hope you do too)

A quick couple of thank-yous - - firstly to MrS for suggesting and organising the overnight stay - - had a brill time!! and also to Beth, who actually prevented me getting frostbite by giving me a super little hand-warmer for Christmas - - worked a treat Smile

Anyway, enough of the "Oscar" speech - - but my final thank you is to you, dear viewer, for spending a little of your precious Sunday here - - hope the rest of it is great!! Grin

Cheers All!

Great speech and superb image, nice use of "Mel's Rock" to hide to sun and force the light to each side of it. A nice little dusting on the top of the Boro. The Dales as I remember them.

Limestones and good light, doesn't get a lot better Fran
Mind you two trips up the scar in less than 24 hrs is an heroic feat, vino earned
