Ingleborough, Christmas Day

This is a view of Ingleborough on Christmas Day, taken just before noon.


A small drift of cloud obscured the area just below the summit, but the rest of its outline was distinct.


The temperature was quite possibly below freezing (my fingers were near to dropping off!), but the scene was magical.


The sky was a clear pale blue; the sun was shining; the farmhouse,hedges and trees stood out in stark relief against the pristine snow.


Taken from just above Wray on the road to Roeburndale West. A very longe-range shot, which I hope does justice to the scene.
