Innominate Tarn, below Haystacks, Cumbria, UK. March 2002.
This snap was taken using my digital camera which I used to take 3 pictures. I then stitched them together on the PC.
No prizes for finding the joins. But I bet you wouldn't have known if I hadn't mentioned it!

Hereabouts lie the last earthly remains of A. Wainwright, the Author of the ultimate and definitive guide books on the Cumbrian fells. To the right I've quoted from his 'Fellwanderer' book.

That day will come when there is nothing left but memories. And afterwards, a last long resting place by the side of Innominate Tarn, on Haystacks, where the water gently laps the gravelly shore and the heather blooms and Pillar and Gable keep unfailing watch. A quiet place, a lonely place. I shall go to it, for the last time, and be carried: someone who knew me in life will take me and empty me out of a little box and leave me alone.
And if you, dear reader, should get a bit of grit in your boot as you are crossing Haystacks in the years to come, please treat it with respect. It may be me.      A.W.
