to carl wark

after nearly 2 weeks of sickness and boy i mean sickness, i ventured out this morning into the peak to see if the snow was up to much, man it was cold, it felt like -10 but i think the car said -3
it was super for around an hour, i had a blast all by my self doing the sunrise on higger and then went scouting for a few new shots.
for some reason i always known this view, it can be seen from the road, but i never bothered to walk back to it. i was really looking for next time when a gap in the clouds illuminated the ground around Carl wark and i was happy with the result. hope you like it.
thanks for looking

Lovely shot, was up near Higgor in November and captured a rainbow shot over Hope Valley, magical place.

Very nice Phil. It can be a bit troublesome getting to this location and I can't imagine the snow and ice made it any easier.

Was hoping to get to Carl Wark for midwinter sunset tomorrow - but am snowed in on our hilltop at the moment and even if I managed to get the car down the hill without writing it off, won't get it back up again!

Both excellent shots but the sunrise (version 2) is definitely the winner for me.

The sunrise/set stands still for a couple of days around the solstice, so even if I didn't make it till Wednesday evening, it would still give the same effect. Or failing that, there's always next year!
