A Look At Lakeland (1 of quite a few)

GRANGE IN BORROWDALE 2/7

The River Derwent passes to one side of Grange and yesterday I showed the double-arched bridge that crosses the river. Here we are looking south towards Borrowdale with Castle Crag in the distance.

You had a good day to capture this wonderful landscape Brian... the clouds gave you just enough reflective light to capture the current in the river... well done....petersmile
Brian Walbey: I was so lucky that day Peter, although on the way to here we had to pull off the road whilst it threw it down with rain, that's our Lake District for you.

I am imagining a pleasant little babble as the water flirts with the stony ridge, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes a really nice trickling river Ray.
Beautiful and calming... lovely image Brian! How are you and Maureen getting along?
Brian Walbey: Sorry Elizabeth, this was meant for Chris, yet another senior moment, too much housework!!!!

One big sigh.
fall has come
Brian Walbey: This was in May Chantal, lovely spring light.
So peaceful, so English. Lovely image, Brian.

My favorite part of this is knowing it is spring ad seeing the new leaves and blossoms.
Brian Walbey: Everything round there seemed so fresh and new.
Very pleasing Brian as all this series has been

Is Maureen still letting you cook or is she sending out for a takeaway?
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Bill. As a non-cooking husband I'm not doing too bad, although Maureen can get about reasonably well and does odd bits and pieces but we are certainly not going hungry and no take-aways as yet, which makes me think we could have a Chinese delivered on Saturday evening smile
This is so lovely to look at, Brian. Especially like that spot of bright green meadow in the center with the bare branches of the tree highlighted against the cloud.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Beverly. It was a lovely place just to be at, the tree was a bonus I never noticed at the time.

The light seems just right for this series, Brian
Brian Walbey: It's difficult to believe that half-an-hour earlier we took shelter because the rain was pouring down.

I love wide and shallow rivers Brian.

If I knew it were May, I would think we had autumn- the colours look a bit autumnal - a lovely view on the river and the mountains- and your information is so correct - you surely studied the map very correctly (as I did).
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine. For all the names of mountains in this somewhat lengthy series I have had to refer to a couple of maps I bought while we were there, Alan, Frank and Richard are too knowledgeable for me to dare get the names wrong!!
Wonderful in this Spring light Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
