Along with a lightening storm on Fairfield, a Gale Force ten with rain at midnight on the Nan Bield Pass, heatstroke and dehydration on Scafell, getting lost on Haystacks for a few hours on a wet drizzle day has to be one of the Lakeland Fell experiences that I remember. Why? well for the sheer joy of the mist rising and the dawning realisation of where I was. Since then its become a favourite one in a list of the Fell tops that I like to revisit. Though small in stature in a mist Haystacks crags and steep drops can look alarming. I've taken to re exploring this lovely Fell in paint here are a couple of works in progress painted in oil.
