this morning's walk: round Rydal Water


bridge above Rydal Water


looking down Rydal Water as I emerge from the woods


looking towards the head of Rydal Water on a rather gloomy morning


looking into the big cave


looking out of the big cave


reflections in the pool in the cave


looking up Rydal Water with a little cloud on top of Silver How


at the foot of Rydal Water


heron fishing in the River Rothay


the bridge over the Rothay below Rydal Water


the Badger Bar


the front of Rydal Church ..


.. and the church from the back


an attractive cottage nearby


Rydal Mount one of William Wordsworth's houses


the coffin road to Grasmere


Rydal Water from the coffin road


zooming over Rydal Water to the big cave


Rydal Water from White Moss Common


the highest spot on White Moss Common ..


.. and zooming in from there to Helm Crag


a wet seat looking down on Grasmere


Silver How from a farm on the way down to Grasmere
