In miniature...

This is an area of the Howgill Fells, near to Cautley Spout. I was 'fortunate' in noticing this crinkled area as I was absent-mindedly playing around in Google Earth ground level view prior to a trip up to photograph the waterfall itself.

 

I've named it this since - at least to me - it looks very much like a view of the entire Howgills range from the air: the surface texture is similar, and the series of radiating ridges and dips is very reminiscent of the Howgills 'massif'. Since this is very low down, there /is/ a wall at the bottom right - a rare sight in these hills, which have no walls higher up. For scale, the white dots are sheep, and should be obviously so in the larger view.

 

I was 'lucky' to find this view. See my blog article on good fortune with Google Earth.
