To start with we headed off from Castlerigg Farm and headed up to Walla Crag. The sun was high by the time we got there so it was a bit of a challenge getting correctly exposed images. Sometimes the exposure metering was spot on but where there were large areas of snow I had to dial in up to + 1.5 compensation to balance the snow and shadows which made blown highlights a problem.
Next we headed off across increasingly soft snow to High Seat. It was bitterly cold in the strong wind but wonderful in the shelter of the summit crags. The views were cracking.
We then descended to Ashness Bridge before making our way back over to Walla crag and then down to our start point. Its nice to feel the sun.
