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.

Wordless Wednesday….. Another Favourite Place

Wastwater-2

Location:-  Wast Water, Wasdale, Cumbria.

Looking towards Wasdale Head with Yewbarrow, Kirk Fell, Great Gable.  The slopes on the right lead to  Lingmell and Scafell Pike.  As you can see from the sky it was a day when the the weather changed back and forth as the clock ticked.  Not that unusual in the Lake District  🙂
