Honister Pass

In the week before Easter we made an attempt to climb Great Gable, a mountain that looms over Borrowdale in the Lake District, from the slightly easier starting point of the slate workings at the top of the Honister Pass. In the end low cloud, and much lower temperatures than expected, meant that we turned back early. But on the way down the sun came out, lifting the blue of the slate on the slopes above Honister. This is another image made with the Sigma DP2 Merrill, which, as I get to know it better, is turning into a favourite camera (I wish it had a viewfinder though).

This image is part of the Northern Exposure 2015 exhibition at the Portico Library, Manchester, throughout July, 2015. All of my featured images can be viewed here.
