Before glaciation Blencathra was just another big pudding of a plain grey hill. Then the icy fingers of a glacier tore at her southern front, producing a savage beauty. Round the back, where the rising glacier smoothed her contours, Blencathra shows none of this ferocity. Ann Bowker took these summit pictures between Christmas 2003 and New Year, when once again the snows returned to the mountain. You may also see the mountain in other moods [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8], with pages from Anne's archive section, which cover different seasons on Blencathra between 1999-2003.
