Snow sunshine and stunning views

Cairngorm mountain opened the ski area for the weekend making the most of conditions with the early snow and high pressure.

In the meantime Cumbria also had wall to wall sunshine, but being that bit further South most of the snow from earlier in the week has melted and the fells are beginning to dry out again after last Saturdays immense down pour and flooding. This photo was taken today above "Grange" South Lakes by the sea. It's Limestone country and surrounded by bolted limestone crags such as "Chapel Head Scar" and is great for catching the winter sun. This area also tends to be warm and drier being so close to the sea. In the distance you can see Dow Crag, Coniston Old Man, Wetherlam, Bowfell and Langdale Pikes.
