I'd checked the Northumberland National Parks Webcams and was hoping that the views would be interesting from the highest point at Winshields Crag.
Parking in the Steel Rigg car park I crossed the road to start the gentle climb up to the trig point, turning around I could see the mist gathering behind me, obscuring views that had been visible only seconds before.
Mist was coming at me from all angles view west from the trig point on Winshields Crag
From Winshields Crag to Cawfields Crag, the house you can see in the right of the picture is Burnhead B&B imagine the views at sunrise and sunset from those windows.
Hoping the mist had lifted a little I wandered back the way I'd come, it was a really lovely day to be out, I heard Skylarks and a Kestrel, it felt spring like. People were beginning to appear on the walk and I stopped several times to chat.

When I got back to the top the mist was still swirling, so I sat on a handy rock and just enjoyed the day.
As I took loads of pictures I've decided to spare you any more today and I'll upload more from this outing tomorrow.
