Scafell Pike - About Halfway

By Andysnapper

Firstly, many thanks to all who voted and commented on yesterday's shot and especially to Netta for her user award.

Today's image is from just above the halfway point and looking across to Sca Fell ( 964m or 3163 feet). A few wispy clouds were just blowing off the peak and the Sun was hiding behind the shoulder of Scafell Pike. By this point I was beginning to wonder if I could make it all the way to the top, it was steep and rough going under foot and it was very warm..... and I was feeling the pain.
