Mountain Lake (Sky Pilot Area) # 15021

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2011.10.09
Vantage Point: the ridge south of the lake

Caption: Mountain Lake below with Mount Sheer rising above it. Sky Pilot and Ledge at rear.

PhotoDescr: I hiked in from the Furry Creek side passing Wind Lake and a couple of tarns before gaining the ridge where this picture was taken. From there I headed in a general southwest direction to reach Ben Vorlich. Cloud billowing up the valley treated me there to a "Brocken Spectre" of the peak I was on reflecting in a rainbow halo of mist below near the lake.

From here I continued along the ridge which is very pleasant and after a couple of short scrambles onroute I gained the summit of Ben Avon. Plenty more good views from there with a mix of sun and cloud.
