Photographic prints of a group of Birch trees near the summit of Tom Heights; a small but rewarding fell nearby to Tarn Hows!

The Protectors - Tom Heights, Lake District, UK.

  • Having failed to locate the path to Tom Heights on several past occasions, I finally managed to find it and made the short walk up through the tall ferns. If you manage to find the path then the ferns aren’t actually too bad but I wouldn’t want to be fern wacking my way up there, that’s for sure! Before reaching the main summit point, I stumbled upon this group of trees and quite liked the composition I was getting with my telephoto lens. Regardless of this, I packed the camera back in the bag and carried on to the summit. This was my first mistake of the evening! As the evening progressed, it was becoming obvious that my intended shot at the summit wasn’t going to work and I fell pray to one of my weaknesses; stubbornness! In the direction of Fairfield, I could see glimpses of light breaking out and that feeling in my gut was telling me to ditch my preconceptions and go back to my previous composition. Of course, it wasn’t until the last minute that I made the decision to very quickly pack up and make the mad dash back through the maze of ferns to the wonderful group of Birches which at this point, had the most amazing light complementing Fairfield in the background! Luckily, I got myself set up and took the shot just in the nick of time before the light disappeared. I think I may have missed the very best of the light but I’m just glad that I listened to my gut, albeit right at the last minute!
