Rambling about Rambling

For the first time in many years, I took a walk up to the summit of North Barrule HERE with Russell. We cheated a bit by walking up from the Guthrie Memorial, but we then walked down all the way back to the sea.

Here's the view from the summit looking north. We had hoped to be able to fly the drone from here, but it was a bit too windy to risk it. it was also, as you can see, very hazy and the cloud kept forming and clearing around us as we took a good look around.

The walk up wasn't too bad, but if anything, the return trip down the eastern shoulder of the hill was more demanding. I'm glad we didn't try and go up that way, as it is very steep and any accessible starting point is much lower down.

Here's another photo taken on the way down, looking towards Ramsey and the north. Russell liked the juxtaposition of the rocks in the foreground and the view into the distance. I've even tried running a Neutralhazer filter on this one in Photoshop, but even that can't pierce this much cloud.

We are hoping to go up again and it'd be great to get the drone out from that high up, to give a different perspective on the area.
