Wintry Walkabout

Your Shot community member Shaun Wilson submitted this photo of an icy trek in the English Lake District. "We got caught on top of Helm Crag in the snow," he writes. "Helm Crag is a fell in the Central Fells." The mountains in the area, locally known as "fells," aren't imposing compared with other mountains throughout the world, but their beauty is a tourist draw. Wilson’s shot was recently featured in the Daily Dozen.
