Cold Wet Windy Dovedale Day

Here's a few pictures from a cold wet windy day out with Keela the dog around Dovedale in the Lake District. The storms came through as we got to the top of Dove Crag and the visibility decreased and winds increased. Sloppy wet snow on the ground and hail storms didn't help me or Keela. I put some glasses on to protect my eyes and they were useful above the freezing level at 750mtrs; they steamed up a bit below that. I was using a fantastic pair of Montane Ice Grip Gloves These are waterproof and warm and you can get them on and off with wet hands. they also have a great level of dexterity  I could press my camera buttons with them on. Not sure about opening a Starbust sweet though!

He must of heard the soup had been turned on. and didn't want to miss out on it. Well done to all involved and the support team. Like a swan on the water!! Some great conditions saw Sticks Pass giving the whole crew a very cold blasting and even a few glimpses of sunshine. More pics can be found here
