Photographer's Note

On the way from Seathwaite in Borrowdale (the wettest place in England) to Scafell Pike (the highest mountain in England), you pass many tarns (a small mountain lake) of various sizes. The largest ones passed on this route are Sty Head and Sprinkling Tarns.
They are both popular wild camping sites, although if you hunt around you can find quieter places with not a soul to be seen. This was one such place; a quiet spot above Sprinkling Tarn a couple of hundred metres from the path. Despite the popularity of this area I didn't see anybody the whole time I was camped there.
I took this in the morning just before packing up my gear. Despite the cloudy conditions, there was virtually no wind, and the surface of the small tarn made a perfect mirror for the grey sky above.
