It was at this moment yesterday I knew we we'd struck gold.
I enjoyed a walk up Scafell Pike from Wasdale with the Chapleo family. From Bournemouth but holidaying in the area the family were keen to get up Scafell Pike.
We delayed our start time to avoid the morning rain and as we met in the car park at 11am the rain was fading to drizzle. Scafell Pike was however still wearing it's misty cloak.
We ascended and the layers soon started peeling off and as we got higher the cloud started to part. Just 10 minutes from the summit the portals through the mist started to open and I knew we were going to get lucky with some summit views.
Blue skies and sunshine is all very well, but there's no doubt that a bit of cloud adds to the drama of the vistas.
