Monday 4th January 2010
First flight of the year. Knowing that it wasn't a very practical day for training and thinking that I might not be able to get to the site, I went out to try and get some aerial shots of the snow. I had to walk from the bottom landing field at Wether Fell in knee deep snow. Having taken off half way up the hill, I was catapulted skywards in a strong (wave) lift to about 1100' above the top. The view was stunning, Wether Fell being completly plastered in snow. After about 40 mins with an increasing wind and chilled face, it was time to descend.
