A FEAR OF HEIGHTS DID NOT STOP ME
High Street is a fell in the English Lake District. At 828 metres, its summit is the highest point in the far eastern part of the national park. The fell is named after the Roman road which ran over the summit.
Why did I think this would be a good idea? A challenge, something to try and achieve, maybe just ignorance of just how high 828 metres actually is! Whatever it was, without the people I had with me, I don’t think I would of even considered going further that the first exposed track around the edge of Riggindale…
Jen, Paul, Angela, John, Tim, Sarah, Graham and of course Mikey and the twa dogs!
Friendships made and more treks and adventures to come with these wonderful fell walkers! A great walk made better for being with you guys! A big special thank to Tim for those last two false summits and helping with my back pack! My head had gone and the drops around me at this point, well 2,000 feet is along way down!
Watch the video and experience my emotions on the day, I’m so glad I recorded a much as possible, memories I will never forget…
Without going on too much about how I really struggled and this experience has changed how I feel about fell walking, I would just like to say thanks to everyone who shared there own experiences with me and took the time to watch the video and comment on all my images! You are all awesome. Without the struggle and fight inside my heart, I doubt my photography would of ever improved. Stay true and follow the path, because if you fall off its along way down.
Hope you like the images below, they where tough to shoot and we only got the light for about 10 minutes, but my god it was worth every step to see this higher world in the clouds.
