Sunny upland

This last Hallowe’en I had a fine time meeting up with a bunch of school friends. Three nights of heavy drinking inevitably took its toll, so after I collected Doctor Magnus from his dog hotel I headed up to the moors to blast out the cobwebs. It is freezing down in the valleys, and still very foggy. Up on the tops it’s glorious sunshine and stunning vistas over mist-choked valleys. Here’s a few pictures.

Mist in the Calder Valley and Cragg Vale. Often this is caused by a temperature inversion – warm, moisture laden air trying to rise meets a cap of cold air that prevents it from doing so and forces its moisture load to condense as fog. This foggy air then sits in place, even when the air above becomes warmer, as it did today. There was a three degree temperature difference between the valley bottom and the Tops. For once, it was warmer on the moors.
