Another shot from my trip to the Lake District last Friday, the sunrise illuminated the Catbell fells on the left of the shot perfectly.

Re-take of an image I previously uploaded, but in hindsight could not live with.

One of those shots that you spot while driving along a country road, as i say " the right time" on a beautiful misty morning along the Eden.

The Howgill Fells, from Westerdale


Similar to others loaded a week ago, Such good reflections I keep going back to them.

This is from the bay, Can't quite get the back end of Grasmoor in

From the hill road to Blea Tarn

I have some taken further down the road but the disgusting mess around the farm spoils it

Although very beautiful, Cumbria's weather can be moody and unpredictable even in summer. I stopped by the road here for a coffee, and 5 minutes after this shot the "Heavens opened", another lovely English summer day :-)

Took this early morning at Derwentwater, liked the lights from Keswick illuminating the sky a little.

Sundays frosty dawn at our rented accommodation ,a few hours before the snow hit

Ullswater Tree, another shot from Saturday morning. I have used this tree a couple of years ago but i wasn;'t quite happy with the placement of the tree in the composition. This time i wanted to place the tree evenly between the distant peaks, also hoping for some early light to add some warmth.

Cumbria is a non-metropolitan county in North West England. Cumbria is one of the most sparsely populated counties in the United Kingdom, with 73.4 people per km2 (190/sq mi).


Cumbria, the third largest ceremonial county in England by area, is bounded to the north by the Scottish council areas of Dumfries and Galloway and Scottish Borders, to the west by the Irish Sea, to the south by Lancashire, to the southeast by North Yorkshire, and to the east by County Durham and Northumberland.


Cumbria is predominantly rural and contains the Lake District and Lake District National Park, considered one of England's most outstanding areas of natural beauty, serving as inspiration for artists, writers, and musicians. Much of Cumbria is mountainous, and it contains every peak in England over 3,000 feet (910 m) above sea level, with Scafell Pike at 3,209 feet (978 m) being the highest point of England. An upland, coastal, and rural area, Cumbria's history is characterised by invasions, migration, and settlement, as well as battles and skirmishes between the English and Scottish.
