Skiddaw and Helvellyn in the blue hour

These are some shots I took a couple of weeks ago from a place I haven’t been before, St. John’s in the Vale in the northern Lake District. There’s a place called Low Rigg, a pretty modest little hill with a great view. Many of these shots were taken after the sun had gone down behind the hills, hence the lovely blue-purple colours. I’d thought at first that I was getting a good view of Skiddaw but checking the pictures and the map the peak I’d thought was Skiddaw is actually Little Man, a secondary top about a mile in front. You can just see Skiddaw summit peaking out behind it in some of the shots.
