Getting things into perspective

The other thing mountains are good for is re-gaining a sense of perspective.

The first walk I did this week was the Riggindale Horseshoe - a seven mile route which begins with a wonderful ascent along a satsifying ridge to the top of High Street via Long Stile.

The first image is of the flank of Long Stile. My ascent was along the left hand ridge and the photo was taken from the other side of the horseshoe on the way down.

In the lower photo, taken from earlier on the descent, the expanded insert is of two guys (the two small dots) walking the same route.
