"The sun was beginning to set; the light was changing before my eyes. It was that time of day known as the golden hour, the light turning redder and softer. The last few people on the fells were making their way back down to the valley, perhaps looking forward to a thirst-quenching pint, and a warm by the fire in the pub. It was autumn time, and the temperature was beginning to drop, I pulled on another layer to protect myself against the cold. A raven squawked and circled above my head, my tent was pitched, I had some water on the boil and soon I would be alone in the fells, under the stars for the night"  Christy Miles
