The view from Low Fell

Tuesday 18th June 2019, 1.55pm (day 2,854)

View from Low Fell, 18/6/19

Decent weather was forecast for the first time in three weeks and lo, it delivered. I had to get out and expand my horizons somewhat, and the Lake District is a fine place to expand them. This is the view from Low Fell, one of A. Wainwrights Western Fells. The lake is Crummock Water, the two big hills Whiteside to the left, and Grasmoor.

Three have fun on Crummock Water

Crummock Water, 7/7/18

Hard to find much to complain about today, photographically or otherwise. And certainly no need to take further shots of toilets.

Flowering heather

Monday 15th August 2016, 2.00pm (day 1,817)

Sprig of heather, 15/8/16

Today really was the last hurrah of my summer holiday; and I still got several hours’ reading in while I made my way to and from the north-western fringes of the Lake District. That is Crummock Water in the distance, the fell behind it being Mellbreak. Meanwhile, on Whiteside, a spectacular profusion of heather; purple was definitely the dominant colour today. Or is it pink? Whatever.

The summit of Rannerdale Knotts

Friday 28th October 2011, 11.40am (day 64)

Rannerdale Knotts, 28/10/11

No time to settle in at home after returning from Moscow – at this time of year it is necessary to grab the chance to get a walk in when I can. I may not have time to do any more until nearly Christmas, unfortunately, and depend on the weather even then.

But it’s worth it. Trips abroad are interesting but I’d rather be here. So would this sheep, by the looks of things.

(See http://214wainwrights.wordpress.com for other photos from today and a description of the walk.)
