this afternoon's local walk: Derwentwater foot - Ullock - Little Braithwaite - Hodgson How

rainbow over Dodd from my window in the morning

Skiddaw from the grounds of the Derwentwater Hotel

wellies still needed to reach the lake but I just got through turning right here to the road

looking back along the riverside path

looking out over Derwentwater

Derwentwater Hotel from the flooded path to the road

lakeside reeds with Walla Crag and High Seat in the distance

Clough Head and Great Dodd from the dry part of the path

cloud now building over Skiddaw

Grisedale Pike from fields near Ullock

new bridge at Little Braithwaite looks nearly ready after being swept away last November

rain sweeping in over Ullock Pike, Carlside and Dodd

Catbells from near Little Braithwaite

rainbow over the Skiddaw massif from the field path near Little Braithwaite

berries beside the path as it approaches the A66

looking back over the A66 to Barrow and higher fells beyond

a lot more cloud now over Skiddaw from the slopes of Hodgson How

zooming up Newlands Valley to Dale Head and Hindscarth from the slopes of Hodgson How

the trees on top of Hodgson How

zooming north to Bassenthwaite Lake and Wharrels Hill wind turbines
