A scroll of cloud hung over Mallerstang whilst we walked Wharton Fell in sunlight. We were gifted with a brilliant November day and the low winter sun brought out qualities of a landscape we rarely see. It's fun to take shadow photographs, I find. They are special to the season and they confer an edge of mystery. As if there's some story embedded and you aren't about to fathom it. To the east lay Mallerstang. To the west a patchwork of field walls was about to appear before us.
