A pano swipe (my first!) of some lovely misty moodiness from Loughrigg yesterday morning. After de-icing the car had put me behind schedule, a bit of a fast march up the fell had me ‘breathing out of my bottom’, for want of a better description. 😳 Still, it was worth the effort . A few more to come from this session I hope! 😀

And also, for the first time, mouthwatering rosewater and pistachio nut meringues.
