Helm Crag Near Grasmere 4/4

Helm Crag is a fell in the English Lake District situated in the Central Fells to the north of Grasmere. Despite its low height it sits prominently at the end of a ridge, easily seen from the village. This, combined with the distinctive summit rocks which provide the alternative name 'The Lion and the Lamb', makes it one of the most recognised hills in the District.

 

Our son Chris went fishing for three days last weekend at a lake somewhere near Newark and sent us this sunset taken with his phone on the Friday evening, he enjoyed his sport but didn't catch a thing!! Actually he doesn't get a lot of opportunity to go fishing and doesn't really get upset if he comes back not having caught anything, it's the break from the normal routine that he finds refreshing I think, and oftimes the camaraderie with fellow anglers.

Those lovely trees in the foreground add much to this fine landscape, Brian.
Brian Walbey: There are so many good angles on that mountain, I did like this one in particular.
Beautiful views, Brian. Amazing to think of the times I've been up there. (In a dim and distant youth, I hasten to add!)
Brian Walbey: Thanks Graeme. Frank and ASlan have also been up there, a few years ago of course, like yourself smile
Another lovely view!!
Good for Chris!

Rugged I think is the appropriate word for this landscape

Fishing I will never understand..
Brian Walbey: Very much so Chris.

A favourite part of the Lakes for me. A few years I was never concerned about climbing up such hills but these days, I look for flatter routes.

I can understand about taking a break from normality and being with other like-minded people.
Brian Walbey: I rather think Graeme Hubbard feels much the same from his comment. Our Chris really does enjoy his fishing.
I think a lot of people enjoy angling for the peace and quiet away from the stress of life.
Brian Walbey: Chris really does enjoy it but with work and family things he doesn't get to go as much as he would like.

Two beautiful landscapes
Brian Walbey: Thanks Beth, it is a lovely area, three of our fellow Shutterchancers have been to the top of that mountain, when they were a few years younger of course smile
These are both very good photos.
