A Look At Lakeland (1 of quite a few)

WATENDLATH 2/7

Watendlath is a hamlet and tarn (a small lake) in the Lake District and is owned by the National Trust and sits high between the Borrowdale and Thirlmere valleys at 863 feet (263 m) above sea level. The tarn is filled by the waters of Blea Tarn Gill and here the gill (stream) continues to tumble its way down the valley towards the Lodore Falls and finally Derwentwater.

Much to like about this scene, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.
I really like this little spot - and the angle that you've captured it! Thank you (sincerely) for the English translation - gills and tarns and mere's... my American brain has a hard time keeping up! Frank is trying to teach me...
Brian Walbey: I had to learn some of these names as well so don't be too embarrassed. So now you've learnt the railway train expressions and the mountain walking expressions, my word Frank is a good influence on you smile
The colours of the water brighten up this scene very nicely Brian... fine composition....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter.

I've actually visited Blea tarn on one of my fell walks Brian
Brian Walbey: Then I hope this is a pleasant reminder Richard.

The light is just catching the tops of the hills
Brian Walbey: Indeed and tomorrows picture will show why that helped.

Lovely cool light. Your photo is crystal clear, just like the waters of the gill.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mike.
great hiking space
Brian Walbey: Indeed Chantal, in fact Alan, Richard and Frank are very familiar with this area through enjoying walking.

I thank you for the translation as well. So many names. A delightful spot, Brian.

This stretch is very popular with painters especially in the spring when the daffs are out. An easy walk is the path down the left side of the stream (with the road on the right)and then back up the road (or simply turn round and retrace your steps.. different views smile )
Brian Walbey: The path you talk of is in tomorrows posting, a view looking straight down the valley which you will no doubt be familiar with.
Lovely, evocative shot,Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frank.
A beautiful journey, by the looks of your shot Brian smile
Brian Walbey: Yes a fine place to visit martin, not much there except mountains, a lake and a very good tearoom.
A great place to walk Brian
Brian Walbey: It certainly is John.
A very nice horseshoe shaped cascade Brian!
Brian Walbey: Isn't it just Richard, and lovely old rocks.

I like the rocks in the gill and I can hear it rushing. Blea Tarn is often mentioned by Alan, you .. and I hope to see one day those tarns, God's eyes as we call the little lakes hight in the Alps.
Brian Walbey: Yes Alan and Richard are very familiar with Blea tarn it seems. I like your name for the little lakes.
I am enjoying this trip around the Lake District Brian. Another pleasant place to dwell a while
Brian Walbey: I'm so pleased to hear that Janet, it is a fair old distance away from where you live isn't it.
Delightful water and silver birches, a worthwhile visit Brian.
Brian Walbey: Well worth the journey Martin, about 4 hours from your place including a stop.
A beautiful place, Brian. The colours are really lovely.
Brian Walbey: Isn't it just Pauline.
Very pleasing Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill.
Another beautiful picture of a very beautiful place. I'll bet the water has been a bit higher this last week with all the rain.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Suzanne. yes our Lake District attracts the rain at all times of the year, including about 10 minutes after I took this picture!
