Fleetwith Pike

The Story Behind the Image - Fleetwith Pike, Lake District

Fleetwith Pike is often overlooked by walkers keen to reach Indomitable Tarn. A short detour from the path to the tarn takes you to this wonderful viewpoint near the summit of the Pike, with a fabulous vista over Buttermere far below.

I hope my wife doesn't read this description, or she'll have fits.

In order to get this photo I had to cling like a mountain goat to the side of the rock outcrop, and pray I didn't slip before the light cooperated to give me this wonderful scene. I wedged my foot into a rock crevice and held onto my tripod for dear life, but it was worth it to get this photo.
