Tuesday 1st February 2011

showed no sign of clearing I didn't bother heading out. Today saw another
grey start to the day but by setting off later than usual I was rewarded
with blue sky and even a bit of sunshine.

A bit of blue sky and sunshine as I start out along Burbage Rocks.
A few minutes later it was gone and it seemed as if it was going to be a grey day after all.
Dropping off Burbage Rocks I spot this shaft of sunshine crossing the valley floor.
A few minutes later it is all change again and the valley is golden.
Looking back to Burbage Rocks from the valley floor.
Fiddler's Elbow just after crossing Burbage Brook.
Higger Tor, my eventual destination but first I diverted left.
