Rag

Sometimes waking early is not so bad, it meant I was able to enjoy this wonderful sight, which was gone within half an hour.

6.20am

Sun just breaking over Uldale

Rag covering the bottom of the valley and hiding the Derwent.


Rag? No, I've not lost the spellchecker. It is Cumbrian dialect for hoar-frost or frozen dew but also used in this village to describe mist hanging over the river in the early morning.
