A Look At Lakeland (1 of quite a few)

ON LATRIGG 4/7

Moving on a bit further from our viewing point on the slopes of Latrigg, a low mountain near Keswick, and even better view of Keswick and Derwentwater lake below can be seen, with the mountains of the Derwent fells in the back

This just shows why is it a popular climb; the lovely lake of Derwentwater and then the sweep of the fells beyond. Can't wait to go back!
Brian Walbey: It is a view worth the walk to see isn't it. No doubt it won't be long before you are back among these hills Alan.

I'm not so sure I could personally live with so much ruggedry on my doorstep but you have to admit this is a grand sight
Brian Walbey: It is a fine sight but I know what you mean Chris, where we live the landscape has more variations and softness abut it.

Oh, lovely memories come back again - I especially love the different rows of hills or mountains - the Lakes is and remains one of the most beautiful areas in England!
Brian Walbey: As you well know Philine there are many areas of England with all sorts of different types of scenic beauty, but this area is magnificent isn't it.
A fine vista Brian. You are doing a good job of selling Cunbriashire
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, but if I'm selling Cumbriashire are you buying it next year perhaps.

Keswick is a lovely town
Brian Walbey: It is indeed Richard, although perhaps not quite so inviting in mid-winter.

Very pretty, Brian. The people in the town must feel surrounded.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary. As Chris remarked it is all rugged scenery, not much of the softer type he and I are used to.
The wonderful light makes those fields outside Keswick appear bright green and lush, Brian. Imagine living there, surrounded by so much natural beauty.
Brian Walbey: Yes again the light was fairly kind to me. As for living there I guess it is far from pleasant in mid-winter, they get a lot of snow, fog and ice up that way.
Love the affect of the sun and shade caused by clouds, Brian. It's such a beautiful area.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much, it is a lovely area.

Do you take notes of all the images you take Brian. I don't and I rarely remember.
Brian Walbey: I don't take notes as such but when I download them to my PC I keep each calendar months originals in a separate folder and then save to titled folders, ie.London perhaps, when I have selected and edited the ones I want to use on SC., in my camera club or for future audio visuals, at which time I might well Google stuff for information.
A fine view of Keswick nestled into the surrounding countryside Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet.
Good view over the town
Brian Walbey: Yes a fine spot for that John.
Superb view with this light Brian!
Now that's a view I've never seen before.
Brian Walbey: Quite a good viewpoint I thought.
Keswick lit nicely, Brian. (That doesn't happen often!)
Brian Walbey: Certainly doesn't Graeme.

Lovely lumps, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Gorgeous aren't they.
