A Look At Lakeland (1 of quite a few)

CASTLERIGG 4/5

There are many fine views from Castlerigg, above Keswick, this one looking down the pass towards Thirlmere Water and Helvellyn, with Low Rigg and High Rigg on the left and and Low Moor on the right, and a hint of snow still on the very high slopes.

It's just stunning Brian.
Brian Walbey: Beautiful landscape isn't it.

The sheep are blessed to live in a place with such a breathtaking vista, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed they are Ray, little do they know what's in store for them.

Simply the Best! The vista is incredible and the lambs give it a bucolic atmosphere. Lovely! smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frances, I could quite happily revisit that place again, I bet it looks different at other times of the year.
Hills, sheep and a stone fence... a perfect place to be for a photo.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Jacquelyn, it all came together well for this one.

Sheep and stones - they have it all, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Indeed they do Lisl, thankfully they don't know what's in store for them.

This is a very pleasing landscape Brian. Bet it gets crowded in summer though
Brian Walbey: Lovely isn't it Chris. I bet it gets a lot busier than this in summer.

Oh I'd love to be walking in those fells again.
Brian Walbey: I'm sure you would Richard, and Maureen and I wish we were fit enough to.

You can't get much better than this. Gorgeous!
Brian Walbey: You certainly can't Mary, thanks very much.
A lovely landscape Brian

This is my Lakeland as I remember with pleasure: the treeless hills and mountains, the drystone walls, the hedges, the sheep, and all the much green...I was in summer there, but it wasn't too busy.
Brian Walbey: This was one of the finest views I think we saw in our week there Philine, it is beautiful isn't it.

I'm impressed with your knowledge of the peaks, Brian! It's a cracking view.
Brian Walbey: Isn't it a beautiful view Alan, no doubt you've walked those hills over the years. Don't be too impressed with my knowledge, I used an Ordnance Survey map and another map of the Wainwright's to work out the names of most of the mountains and fells I'm showing in this somewhat lengthy series.
It's years since I spent any time in the LD - must get back!
Brian Walbey: Well worth a visit Tom, as I said a few days ago I hadn't been there since 1960, I wish I was still as active and fit now as I was then to do a lot of walking.
Quintessential Lakeland, Brian.
