First Light, Cat Bells, Cumbria, England - This mountain or fell was a fairly easy walk up, even in the dark, taking me less than an hour. I took this photograph shortly after sunrise from near the summit looking north towards the beautiful town of Keswick and the Skiddaw mountain range. The lake on the right is Derwent Water, my favourite in the Lake District and used as the film location backdrop in Star Wars The Force Awakens where the X-wings skimmed along the water. On the left in the distance is Bassenthwaite Lake near Braithwaite. If you continue south along the ridge of the Cat Bells, you will arrive at Dale Head, which offers some fantastic views over Buttermere and beyond.
