This is an hand held panorama made up from seven separate photographs making a print size of 52 x 19 inch. It is the view from Loughrigg Fell south towards Windermere and beyond.
I just kept my eyes on the path as we walked up the steep icy path. Looking down the slope at a blurry nothingness make me to nervy and as soon as I take my gaze of where my next footstep should be I always end up slipping.
Coming down was horrendous. I struggle to see my fingers at arms length so seeing where I’m placing my feet safely is impossible. With every step I expected to fly down the fell. I’m lucky though to have taken with me a tiny guide, my wife, who resembled a mountain goat and kept me safe and well.
I was a bag of nerves at times but it was worth it, if you don’t do these things you don’t get the pictures.
