Pen-y-ghent Snowfire

By MikeH
My adventurous side got the better of me on Sunday.A spectacular winters day with crisp light but few clouds.
Up to my knees in the drifts I waited till the sun was going down for this lovely pink light on the grasses.
The Pennine Way passes on your right up to the summit.

Caught the light beautifully here, the low angle works well if you can manage back up again after you get the shot.
