After several hours patiently watching all varieties of sun and cloud shadow combinations sweeping over the fields of Wasdale Head, and the added problem of sheep wandering in and out of view, the light finally came good late in the afternoon. As the cloud shadows were moving through so quickly the decisive moment had to be intuitive, there was no second chance.
