1 out of 4 weather forecasters got this right.

Such conditions are a real treat and great reward not just for the effort required to reach the summit but also the risk taken that the day out in the hills may end up a drab affair. When we left Coniston the cloud looked like it was set for the day and after a few hundred feet of ascent when we climbed intro the cloud it could well have been that we would have been stuck with such conditions for the rest of the day. Thankfully one weather forecaster got everything spot on. At the time of this shot the cloud level would have been about two thirds of the way up towards the summit.

This view shows much of the area we hiked through that day. From left to right, there is the summit of Coniston Old Man, then the ridge heading towards the centre of the image includes Brim Fell and Wetherlam. Our route of ascent was up the ridge to the right of this shot, and of course the the cloud we had climbed through occupies the centre right portion of the shot.

Regrettably some of the restrictions of an iPhone can be seen in this image. The hills are correctly exposed and the colour is correct, however the sky seems to be much more vivid than I would have expected and the shadows seem a little extreme.
