Langdale Sunset

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

A fine day of high pressure and sub-zero temperatures at the weekend made for some perfect mountain photography conditions. These shots were taken from high on Crinkle Crags in the Lake District.

Sorry Heather, not the most flattering angle, but fun…

Whinlatter Forest

Pictures taken at the new Whinlatter Forest Mountain Bike trail, Lake District. The top distressed image was of course an accident, borne from using an uncontrollable compact camera, but I quite like the effect. Click images to view larger.

Tower Bank Arms, Near Sawrey, Ambleside

Tower Bank Arms, Near Sawrey, Ambleside

Esthwaite Water, Sunset, Cumbria. Cracking overnight wild camping spot is this.

Just what I needed after a couple of weeks away – the Lake District, the other half, a proper pub, a real fire, real ale, and a pretty sunset.

Hodge Close Quarry, Coniston

This disused slate quarry is now a mecca for rock climbers seeking E-graded sports routes. We had taken climbing kit with us, but alas slate is a slippery as ice when even slightly wet, and in this case, water was streaming down these the bolted climbing routes.

I did some research on this quarry when I got home and found [this] most amazing autumn panoramic shot of this quarry by Gary Waidson, which quite frankly made me want to give up photography, or perhaps try a lot harder!
