A lung busting 1000ft climb in the dark up Parkin Clough to shoot the sunrise from the summit of Win Hill.
I was sweating cobs by the time I reached the top then rapidly cooled down when the sub zero temperatures went to work.
There was quite a bit of cloud cover when I first arrived that was soon whipped away by the wind but still a little remained when the sun broke through to add some extra colour to the scene as well as a light smattering of snow that had fallen during the night. It was a lovely way to start the day and certainly worth the effort in getting up there.
