Lunar Eclipse – 3rd March, 2007

We were in the Lakes this weekend planning on doing a little rock climbing or even some flying if the winds were right. We met up with some buddies from a previous 2004 Everest expedition in Tibet. (Ray Smith, Mike Brennan, Rick Taylor and Baz Roberts) The rain held off more or less on the Saturday but the rock was wet and it was way too windy to fly. I went for a walk with Di and then we met up in Ambleside for a curry that evening. The air was crisp and clear when we approached the tents; perfect conditions to view the lunar eclipse. It was orangey in color.

My great friend Huw Griffiths, who lives in Hampshire, took this.
