Clear skies in Manchester and it looked relatively clear towards the Peaks, and I was thinking, this is going to be a fine morning! Oh how my feelings went up and down as I approached Hathersage, my heart started to sink; cloud and fog on the hills, was lady luck going to be against me? Initially I did have thoughts about turning back, but I decided to persevere and see what awaited at Higger Tor, knowing that if I turned around I might missed something, even though the conditions didn't look ideal!

I am glad I stuck to my guns as the weather did play ball and I managed to get the picture I scouted out previously.
