Mike said: ‘I had an idea to capture an image of someone rock climbing above a temperature inversion for several years.

‘The route in the photo was selected as it is at an altitude of approximately 400m which would ensure it to be above the clouds during a temperature inversion and it has a stunning backdrop.

‘After years of waiting all the elements came together on a beautiful winters day.’
