We are on holiday in the Lake District. This is gorgeous Grasmere.

#LakeDistrict #Grasmere

In the foreground are the gentle ripples of a large lake: the water is blue-grey, reflecting the colours of the sky.

Behind the lake rises a large hill, on which the sun is shining, illuminating it in a variety of colours: red, brown, green, grey.
In this picture the lake is still rippled, but reflecting the hills behind it. The hills are again illuminated by evening sunset and show off a variety of colours. Between the lake and the hills, in the middle distance, are lots of trees.

"A mile or two past Henry's land my father pointed to a
field being ploughed by the roadside. A giant red tractor was pulling a huge blue plough. I could sense he was alarmed by something. Look,' he said, 'there are no seagulls or crows following the plough.'This was a shocking thing to him. There must be no worms in those fields. They've all been killed off with slurry,' he said."

From James Rebanks' "English Pastoral", a wonderful family history (and perhaps even more, history of farming) in the Lake District.

Sunshine briefly lights up a winter scene. In the far distance the mountains have their heads in the low cloud and snow on them. Nearer to the camera are the bare branches of deciduous trees and a mix of brown and green coniferous trees (Larch has needles that drop each year). The main feature of the shot is the narrow single track lane that leads into a half hidden farmhouse amidst scrubby fields and tumble down dry stone walls assisted by post and wire fencing.

Super afternoon yesterday for a walk up Black Crag from Tarn Hows in the #LakeDistrict. Fantastic views for modest effort.
Of course the dog tried to jump in every bog near the path on the way up.

Black and white Springer Spaniel stood on a small rock surrounded by grassy knolls with Lake District high cells on the horizon. The dog is attached to a long blue training line which is draped on the ground.

From Pyroclastic Flows to Lapilli Tuffs — Navigating the Langdale Pikes

On the first night back home in Cleveland, I awoke to a drizzle, low-hanging clouds, and, after a week in the Lakes, a slight feeling of dysphoria. My morning constitutional brought no relief as the weather remained dismal. So, I believe it's only fair to share a photo taken a few days prior in La ...

A (naturally long-exposure) photo taken on a 3D printed pinhole camera. Ilford stock.

The jetty runs into Ullswater in the UK's Lake District, behind the Inn on The Lake hotel.

Black and white photograph of a jetty at Ullswater, Cumbria. 

The jetty is partially submerged with only about one third of it visible above the water. 

The long exposure and pinhole camera cause a softness to the image, which in some ways echoes the damp and misty weather.

Barrow. It's a shipbuilding town that's nearly part of the lovely Lake District. So, in our area, we've got big tourism, smallish industry that's really big in special things, and normal economic stuff. Old towns, especially Barrow, are rundown and poor.
Here's the news. Govt is trying to level up, without spending extra money. Just magic. 1/2

We went to the Lake District in August 2019, just before Covid hit. The weather is everything, and can change on a dime. The Wordsworth Museum tour is a must, but the scenery is unparalleled.

It's the end of the summer holidays.

Just as a heatwave arrives!

So we got up nice and early to hike to Colwith Force, snapping some gorgeous woodland and waterfall scenery. Added extra, swirling mist and fog burning away from the mountain tops.

Plenty more photos from this day are waiting for you right here -> 👍

365 water voles have been released in the Lake District to hopefully create a strong population. They're very much needed as part of a healthy, sustainable ecosystem.

It was only a small break in the rain but what stunning conditions to be on a hillside in the Lake District!

Storm Betty is coming. I think we will be okay near Windermere. The tent is superstrong (small thing in the middle) and we pitched it with protection from the wind from all sides. Rain never harmed anything inside, when others had to dry everything. And ... there is a gaming room on site. We'll wait it out. Then Wrynose and Hardknott are waiting. 🤨

Path leading to lake with mountain behind

As we hear of the effects of the #ClimateEmergency round the world, and see #flooding in #Norway I am reminded of #StormDesmond that hit #Cumbria between 5th & 6th Dec 2015. In 48 hours #Thirlmere in #LakeDistrict recorded 405mm of rainfall in combination with severe gales up to 81mph. This was an El Nino year.

It was the 4th major storm of the autumn. The ground and the lakes were already saturated.

It's all looking a bit dry now though.

Views across the Mickleden Valley and Langdale in the Lake District. This was the start of the walk towards Scafell Pike 🚶‍♂️ #Langdale #LakeDistrict #Cumbria #Landscape #RobinsonRoams

Views across green fields with a few sheep, trees and dry stone walls looking out to large hills beyond marking each side of the valley. Bright blue skies and some small white clouds hang over the hills.

Seems hard to imagine that this time last week we were beginning the long climb to the top of Bowfell then getting chased down by the clouds!
