this afternoon's short walk: a failed attempt to reach Derwentwater foot


a glimpse of Derwentwater from the grounds of Derwentwater Hotel


very high water up to the path to the lake


the flooded path to the lake


turning back despite the wellies - note the swans well "inland"


at the other end of the path - Latrigg in the distance


the path is almost part of the lake this afternoon


Derwentwater and Dodd seen over what is usually a boggy field


very windy in Portinscale back road


Swinside and Barrow from the road


crocuses beside the road
