A Look At Lakeland (1 of quite a few)

BUTTERMERE 2/7

 There is a pleasant walk down to the North-Western end of Buttermere lake and glancing over to ones left are the twin peaks of Robinson with High Snockrigg to the fore, and I think Dale Head to the right.


Thanks for all your comments while we were away for the weekend, which turned out o.k.on Saturday and Sunday, although it rained on Friday and Monday, and the train ride on the Shakesperian Express was great, 75mph. (120kph.)at times I believe.  I cannot reply to every comment but will attempt to answer any questions that some of you might have asked, and catch up with your weekend postings as well, during the next couple of days.

Frank has a bump, just like this, today, Brian, but he chopped off all the interesting stuff you have cleverly left in the foreground.
Brian Walbey: Yes I see the difference but he was a lot further from the bottom of the hills than I was here.
another beautiful landscape
Such a beautiful place - and the cloud shadows make the hills look so interesting. BTW - I'm not sure the tree in yesterdays photo was the same as mine... the trees I'd featured from my Buttermere experience were right on the shore of the lake. Frank will correct me if I'm wrong, I hope!
Brian Walbey: The clouds really add to this one I feel. Frank has backed you up with the site of your tree, you must be working as a pair smile

A fine landscape shot Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris. Enjoy your holiday with the girls.
I love the range of greens here Brian
Brian Walbey: The dullness of the day seems to bring out the greens in more depth doesn't it.

Brian Walbey: Well worth all the trips you made Richard.

Brian Walbey: Yes they really add to the image don't they.

A gorgeous scene. I love the green path up the center. You are beside Frank with his mountains at the moment. Looks like a huge range between the two of you.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary. My views are from the base of the hills whereas Frank must be fitter then me, his are from the slopes or the tops.

A delightful view, Brian. I can see the little church and also the farm which sells fabulous ice cream.
Brian Walbey: We didn't get to have an ice cream, run out of time, but you will all see more of that lovely little church on Sunday.
he sunlight paints a great picture.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Tom, it gives some sculpturing to the scene doesn't it.
Lovely view and light, looks like an ideal day Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks John, it was one of those intermittent sunny then cloudy days.

I must get there while I am still a walker, Brian
Brian Walbey: Straight up the M5 and M6 from you Lisl, couldn't be easier.
I like very much this light effect !
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much, a stroke of luck to be there at the right time.
