A Look At Lakeland (1 of quite a few)

AT THIRLMERE WATER 7/7

To close my look at Thirlmere Water on the other side of the road from the lake is a range of mountains forming much of what is called the Eastern Fells and among the peaks is the third highest mountain in the Lake District Helvellyn which is 3,118 feet (950 meters) high. I guess it is very picturesque in the summer months but for the people living on the farm on the lower slopes of the mountain I guess things will be quite hard in the winter, you can get some idea from Frank's picture here http://blueskys.shutterchance.com/image/2013/04/30/helvellyn-lower-man/

Lovely shot of the undulations, Brian. I like the frill of dead grass, too.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray. The grass had still not rejuvenated itself after the winter.

In your shot it looks lovely but in Frank's a bit chilly for southerners like me..
Brian Walbey: I go along with that thought being from more southerly climes myself (Hertfordshire.)

Lots to see in this shot. Frank,s shot looks like not much of a winter shot from a Canadian's point of view.
Brian Walbey: I guess it doesn't look that wintry in Franks shot but it would look much like a Canadian mountain in the depths of winter, they have an awful lot of snow round that way.

a finely composed photo - and how often I saw the impressive Helvellyn from some sides in the Lakes, it looks really like a king-like 'mountain', but in Austrian/Swiss pov it might be called rather a 'hill' (under 1000 m). I don't want to be there in Wintertime.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine. Indeed all our mountains would be just little hills compared with the Alps, and the mountains in the countries of some of our other friends on SC., Mary and Peter for instance.

so much to see so much to do ...lovely
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, as I;ve said before, perhaps you should return up that way next year.
that is some view! one can see for quite some distance
Brian Walbey: Even better from the top I should think Ayush.
You are still here! What a lot of lovely photos from Lakeland
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much, just two more weeks of this lengthy series to go.
A good shot,Brian,as you say,it's a tough life up there in winter,( Sometimes in Summer too! ) Thanks for the plug.smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frank. Glad you didn't mind me pointing to your image, it illustrated my comment very well.
Both pix are worth a long look.

A grand part of the country Brian, nicely captured.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Les. Hope you are keeping well.
A lovely composition to end your series Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
Puts it in context, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed it does Tom.

Helvellyn remains a firm favourite for me; it was my first "proper" mountain that I've climbed and I've done it three times now. On the last occasion there was snow on top and I came down the path snaking down the hill. Hard on the knees these days.
Brian Walbey: I must say well done then Alan, even in my younger days I doubt I'd have had the energy to get to the top of there.
How lovely to see it from this angle - and without the snow!
Brian Walbey: It looks good from this angle but I suspect more dramatic from the other side, or indeed the top where I believe Frank has been and I know Alan has.
