Lake District Mountain Hike
 

This May bank holiday turned out to be an epic one.

My friend Scott (responsible for all the amazing shots on this blog) randomly suggested we climb a mountain as early as we can and catch the sunrise — so we did.

I hope the pictures put across how amazing the experience was - it's something I'll never forget. The views were breathtaking, I could've stayed there for days.
