Stopping at Blea Tarn

By Chant57  
A day filled with rain, hail, sleet and snow, which made the journey from little langdale to Blea Tarn spectacular in terms of scenery.
When I finally got set up to take some shots, a snow storm obliterated the pikes but undeterred I covered by kit with a carrier bag and waited it out. It was freezing cold and the tarn was very choppy so I had decided to take some ten stop images if the rain/hail/sleet and snow would just stay away long enough. Sure enough a few moments later I was blessed with some lovely light before once again the weather closed in and that was the end of the photography for the day. It certainly brought home to me how quickly and suddenly the weather can change up in the Pikes. The drive down into Great Langdale was another visual treat with stunning scenery, and more rain/hail/and sleet.

Thanks for Looking Smile
