360 degree panorama from Gowbarrow Fell - click on the image for a larger version


descending the east ridge of Gowbarrow Fell - signs of welcome work on the boggy path


most of the boggiest bits have been gravelled over


approaching the ruined shooting lodge ..


.. which used to be a good lunch spot but now doesn't look very inviting


looking back along this gorgeous path


the magic moment when it rounds a corner to reveal this view up Ullswater


Hallin Fell and a couple of yachts from the cairn above Yew Crag


the Ullswater launch in front of the Sandwick Valley


power and sail in front of Place Fell


my seat for lunch - A THANK OFFERING OCT 1905


the path continuing above Ullswater


looking up Ullswater from the path


zooming in over foxgloves to Lyulph's Tower


Aira Force


the upper part of the upper falls


wind curlew on the return to Dockray


on the way home a visit to Matterdale Church


inside the church looking east ..


.. and looking west to the unusually situated organ
