Frosty Light

By Trevhas
Another freaky weather day !
I woke late due to festive activities but the sky was blue and sun shining brightly, an ideal warm winters day for a sobering Hike on the ridge above Castleton,............
so i thought.
When i turned the Surprise corner, ( which gives a spectacular full length view of the Hope valley,) hovering above frosted fields, deep in the valley was a dispersing freezing fog, so i diverted to Hathersage, parked up and chased this fog along the Derwent river finally catching up with it here, just beyond Grindleford.
The frost was melting quickly in this balmy 10c heat, five minutes later this frost had disappeared.
A lovely sunny walk back to the car and a drive home, shame to go straight home on such a warm winters day, especially at lunchtime, so i called in at a very busy Grouse pub at Longshaw, ordered pie, chips, peas and a pint and when the barman asked me where i was sitting i replied "Outside of course."
Now thats a first for me, sat outside, in the sun, on a mid winters day having hot food and a pint, Magic !! SmileSmile

Many thanks for all the UA's and the HC award on my other frosty effort, very much appreciated. SmileSmileSmileSmile

Great shot...we are used to strange weather in Melbourne...four seasons in a day...the saying goes...if you don't like the weather in Melbourne wait 15 minutes
