A Look At Lakeland (1 of quite a few)

BUTTERMERE 1/7

When I showed a panorama of Buttermere and some of the surrounding mountains back at the end of May I said that the last time I had been there was at Easter, 1960, so it was great to return after all those years, even though the weather wasn’t all that bright. This is a general shot looking over towards the Honister Crags above Honister Pass that runs along at the foot of those mountains out to the left of the picture.  I do know Frank introduced Elizabeth to Buttermere during her stay in the Spring so I hope this short series reminds them of their visit.

Stunning landscape Brian! I just finished watching Rob Roy and this landscape is reminiscent of the landscape in the move. Excellent capture.

Beautiful place...nicely captured, too, Brian.
I'm enjoying this series, Brian. I remember noticing the little stone hut, as well.

Oh, this photo could make my day! Wonderfully composed!
This is so beautiful Brian! Thank you for posting and thinking of us. It does indeed bring back fond memories of a most lovely part of the world... and a most lovely time in my life!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth, it is Buttermere all week and I'm sure you will recognise most of it, that is if you were able to drag your eyes away from "young man" long enough to look around you smile I think this is the lovely tree you had in your Buttermere images isn't it.

Those mountains look wonderful. I expect Mr Alan Rolfe will admire the sheep
Brian Walbey: I still await Mr.Rolfe's comment. I can honestly say I walked across the top of those mountains in 1960.
It is a beautiful part of the country that is almost totally unknown to me Brian
Brian Walbey: You should take Ange up there for a few days Bill, not too far up the M5/M6 I world think, it took us 5 hours including two stops to Keswick, and not breaking any speed limits.

A fine corner of the Lakes Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Richard, back where I went in 1960 on a hiking holiday with my school.

What with Paul at Castlerigg today I am doubly spoilt! The dye on the sheep really sings against the vivid greens.
Brian Walbey: I will have to look at Paul's as I am featuring Castlerigg myself in this extended series.

The spring green makes my day. I sure wish is was May now rather than September.
That is a predestinated color-design sweater to make of this sheeps wool
Brian Walbey: LOl. I often wonder how they get this dye off the wool when they process it.
Very nice indeed is this
Lots of lovely green pasture for the sheep to enjoy. Even shot in this overcast weather, Brian, the gorgeous scenery shines through bright and beautiful.
Great landscape, nice to have the sheep in shot!
Super shot,Brian,I have nothing but good memories of Buttermere,even before I shared it with,Elizabeth, I've been trying to work out where you took this from.
Brian Walbey: If you walk up the hill with the little village hall and the church on your left this farm is on the right along near the road junction to Newlands or Honister. My visit to Buttermere took me back to my stay in the Youth Hostel there during a walking trip with my school in 1960.
A beautiful shot, Brian!
A wonderful pastoral scene Brian!
Super landscape Brian

Ahhh... my favourite sheep! They don't seem to appreciate the views, though smile
Brian Walbey: We found quite a few sheep roaming loose in the village itself.
