Honister, Dalehead and Castle Crag

An alarm at 2am meant an early set off to get to the Honister Slate Mine for around 4.30am with a good friend Trevor Thurlow. We met Ade Gidney there who guided us up to the summit of Dalehead for what we hope would then be a great sunrise. 

Sadly not, the only image of the day to indicate a sunrise was the first one in this gallery. The cloud inversion rose rather than fell and we were left standing in the fog hoping it would clear.

We made the most of the conditions we had and this was poor light all day. We tried some industrial heritage photography at Honister plus some black and white photography there and at Castle Crag. All in all, despite the conditions we had a great and very long day. 

The plan was to shoot a sunset too, but it became obvious this wasn’t going to happen. Another time perhaps.
