It had been light for a while. The shot was taken at 0456am after emerging from the tent.
Heaton Cooper said of Scoat Tarn 'It is a curious fact, which has to be experienced to be credited, that by reaching a certain height on a mountain the climber does really seem to enter quietly and gradually into another world, or another dimension from that of the valley. The change is subtle and personal, depending, I believe on many factors - the character of the mountain; the length of time and distance taken to arrive at the place as much as its height above sea-level; the variety and interest of the journey; the mood of the weather, either expansive or restricting. But the awareness of this other dimension depends finally upon one's own state of mind and heart and whether it is clear and free and humble enough to accept what every hour and minute has to give, the turn of the stream, the flash of the bird's wing or the long vista of distant peaks'.
