No submissions for this month! December 2010 has seen some magnificent winter weather but it's been very cold. This photo was taken on 31 December 2008 by Jill Westmacott. Ian Henderson attempts to launch in slightly katabatic air on Barkin Fell. The lesson for the day was that launching in slightly katabatic air might not be a good idea!

John Hamlett took this photo of Kitt Rudd on Blease Fell on Friday 19 November. The view looks south down St Johns in the Vale with Helvellyn on the left. John reports that it was "a stunning day but the wind was just too light to stay airborne. A good opportunity for me to practice my alpine launch!"

August followed July with poor weather. However, by the middle of the month, things had improved dramatically with Sunday 15 August being an excellent day. Here Ben Keayes prepares to launch on Clough Head and fly to Ings between Kendal & Windermere. A number of pilots made it down the Helvellyn ridge with paraglider pilots taking over the 555 bus back over Dunmail Raise!

No photos submitted this month perhaps reflecting the rubbish weather! Its been a month of strong winds and rain - quite a contrast to June. This month's picture is Chris Field flying Whitestones in August 2008. The view is looking south and it looks like we grabbed an evening's opportunity

Friday 16 April was a brilliant day on Whitestones. Here Ed Cleasby soars above the Howgills looking south down the Lune Valley. While the mere mortals amongst us hopped between Fell Head and Whitestones, Ed soared effortlessly down to Sedbergh and then returned north to Blease Fell (Tebay). Photo by Alex Butler
