Amazingly there is no camera shake despite being hand held while barely
able to stand in ferocious 50mph winds.
Benign though the scene appears, I had to make several sorties out from
the shelter of a low outcrop (out of picture to the right) to take the
shot with legs spread and braced, leaning into the blast, trying to time
the exposure with a lull between gusts. Problem was: the lulls were
barely less intense than the main gusts.

Skiddaw with Bassenthwaite Lake below :
Cassie seemed unbothered by it. Being on four legs and low to the ground
is a definite advantage in such circumstances!
