A small collection of pictures from a quick December wild camp on Fairfield summit in the Lake District. Visibility was poor across the two days, which meant that there weren’t many photographic opportunities to speak of. Some snow remained on the ground about 700m, but it was thawing on the first day and had mostly disappeared on the second. The Fairfield Horsehoe is a popular route in the Lake District, and is often undertaken by fell runners and backpackers alike. It is a route that can certainly be completed by a competent hill walker in a single day. Views from Fairfield are some of the best anywhere in the national park when the cloud base is high. From the summit, you are able to take in ranges such as the Langdales, and north towards Skiddaw and Blencathra.
