Moody Monday…… After the storm

Sunshine-after-the-Storm

Borrowdale, Cumbria. 

Renown to be the wettest place in England… and indeed we can confirm we have had plenty of wet days in the area.  But then the sun breaks through and all is well again.  Perhaps the best time is when those clouds are just lifting and exposing the circling mountain tops that create Borrowdale.  But there is no mistaking that lush green that only the rains can provide.   Moody but magical

A Calm Lakeland View…..

Ullswater-Cumbria

Always a popular spot for me.  Standing on Hallin Fell above Howtown and looking down over Ullswater.  Ullswater is located on the eastern side of the English Lake District, Cumbria.  In the tourist season the Lakes can be very busy, but in places like this  you can find that peace and just to stand and stare. 🙂

The Pikes……

Lakes

The Langdale Valley, Cumbria

The Langdale Valley surround by Cumbrian Fells but dominated by the Langdale Pikes.  With names that remain in the memory long after they have been climbed in younger days…. names like Pike of Stickle, Harrison Stickle, Loft Crag and Gimmer Crag not forgetting Raven Crag. The Dungeon Ghyll often a ragging water fall when the mountain sides seem alive with water.  But also, Dungeon Ghyll  the name of  the hostelry nestling below the Craggs with a welcoming Pint to top-off any mountain day.

The Langdale’s, great in all seasons, but especially beautiful in March with snow touching some of the adjoining summits.
