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


Causey Pike and Barrow from Portinscale back road


autumn colours coming on the back road


the path to the lake with Clough Head and Great Dodd ahead


the Skiddaw massif from the path


into the lake - despite higher wellies the circuit proved impossible


retreating with Lord's Seat and Barf behind the houses of Portinscale


a nice sky now over Portinscale


friendly cat at the Derwentwater Hotel


Bleaberry Fell and High Seat ridge from the hotel


this is about the edge of Derwentwater at the moment ..


.. not easy to distinguish the lake from the river


Skiddaw from in the edge of the lake
