The Mighty Blencathra - awesome

Taken on a freezing cold winter day in the English Lake District. The Blencathra mountain, or fell, is where Sharp Edge is found - a deadly precipice. My research for my book A Lake District Journey uncovered some tragic events here and even a few local folk, who know these mountains intimately, have perished after falling from Sharp Edge. This huge mountain is dangerous at any time of year, but especially in the depths of midwinter. A visit to the English Lakes is highly recommended - you will never be short of things to see and do.
