Looking at that sky I have to say I'm glad I'm here (Angletarn Pikes) and not there (Gray Crag, Caudale Moor, Hartsop Dodd, Middle Dodd and Red Screes).
While I was standing here I used the zoom lens on the camera as a telescope to see if there were any Deer on the fellside below Brock Crags (I've seen them there before). And sure enough there was a large number of them grazing near Lingy Crag.
Right, I thought to myself; there's no point letting all that SAS training go to waste. What I'll do is head along the edge of Lingy Crag, sneak up on them from behind and get some decent pictures before they even know I've been there. Of course all this would be done while I blend in perfectly with the landscape. That sounds impressive doesn't it? But who am I trying to kid, , , I had a bright red top on, I must have stunk of garlic from last night, I had two poles clattering on the ground and if the truth be told, sneaking up quietly isn't exactly my strong point. Anyway:
I still gave it a go and managed to get quite close before the red top frightened them, the smell of garlic wafted across to them and the noise from the poles announced there was an intruder on the scene.
