The festival which featured lighting Barrow, Stile End and Outerside was organised by Matt Le Voi of Lakeland Mountain Guides.

‘It was a cool and breezy night, and we were being extra demanding this year by requiring the people on the mountains to stay as still as they could.

"By the time the pictures were being taken people had already been up on the mountains for a fair while, so they did well to stick it out and bear with us. Their perseverance has to be commended."
