All is cloudy and grim as we set out from Tilberthwaite.

Raining a little bit now and has been for about 10 minutes.

And then as ifby magic the rain stopped for the rest of the walk and the cloud lifted. This photo shows Wetherlam cloud-free.

And over in the distance is Coniston Old Man.

Holme Fell summit. The Cairn for the peak is a little bit further away from the actual top.
