All from yesterday. Blea Tarn is just a little further on from the Little Langdale spot that I posted pics from a couple of weeks ago. No weather problems today, although a bit of cloud would have added some interest to the sky and a slight breeze meant that there was no mirror-finish surface to the water. Can't have everything - usually.

I like the natural colours in this set.

Cheers

Nice set warth man. I think No.2 is the pick for me with the view of the Pikes. Like 4xxxx said, like the colours.

I really ought to get back up to the lakes, haven't been there for about 25 years now.......I'm getting old.

Thanks for the comments folks. I don't know where exactly in Zummerzet you are Arthur but, for a change, we don't seem to have as much water up here as you! Hope you didn't suffer too much.

Hi warth man. Fortunately I live in the north by the coast on the costa del mud, still on the flood plain but not near a major river, so no flooding for us - very wet and windy - but that's all. One of my friends unfortunately lives next to the river Parrett and made it to the news! They're looking at 9 months before they move back in :( I count myself lucky....thanks for asking.
It might have been the last time I was up in the lakes (a February I think) and was looking forward to some snow..... I have never seen rain like it, it was unrelenting :shock: we did try to ascend Stickle Ghyll but we arrived at the base of the Ghyll and water was flowing everywhere, including down the path and the noise of the water over the falls....... We went back to our accommodation!

A great set you have there. Stunning scenery and the weather looked glorious for it. I think 3 is my favourite, but they're all very good really. I'd be chuffed to have taken those (send to have had sky like that ;) ).

Thanks Savlet. I appreciate your comments - and you're right. I should be thankful for clear skies - we get so few. In fact I can only recall one more day (the day after this one, when I was at Malham) like it since these pics were taken. Roll on the next!

Beautiful set, hoping to go on a visit up there this summer.
