Dawn… I wonder what next


Dawn over a calm Derwent Water looking towards a cloud kissed Skiddaw.  One of my favourite locations near Low Manesty in the Lake District, Cumbria.

An image from the archive as you can tell by all the vapour trails….something we have not seen in our skies for over a week now.

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

Wordless Wednesday……. Another Favourite Place


Location:-   Dawn over Derwent Water, Cumbria.  Looking towards Nichol End with Cat Bells beyond.

( A scan of a Kodachrome trani some 30 years old – the location has not changed, its just as beautiful today)

Moody Weather…. sudden swings


Comb Beck falling from Comb Crags above Buttermere, Cumbria

Not a recent image, but one I thought reflected the mood swings of this bad weather period, which we seem to have been passing thru for many months now.  Every so often the insistent rain pauses and small breaks appear,  the sun we thought we had lost for good, peaks through a thinner layer of cloud.

If the current rains persist in staying with us I think I will soon have webbed feet  🙂
