this morning's walk: Latrigg


the tunnel under the A66


Blencathra from the path beyond the tunnel


descending onto the old railway, now a footpath and cycleway


bridge over Glenderaterra Beck from the old railway


looking along the old railway towards Keswick past an old platelayer's hut with Latrigg up on the right


stormy weather approaching from the west


looking down the water eroded track to Latrigg


first glimpse of Derwentwater with a thunderstorm towards its head


looking back down the east ridge of Latrigg to Blencathra and the Mell Fells


not very pleasant on the summit ridge of Latrigg - here looking south to Derwentwater


the storm coming in over Dodd, Carl Side and Skiddaw


looking over Keswick to Derwentwater


the Coledale fells from the west ridge of Latrigg


two friends coming up as I descend with Skiddaw ahead


starting to clear over the Coledale fells


zooming in on Barrow and Outerside ..


.. and on Catbells and Maiden Moor


Hindscarth and Robinson with a little fresh snow or hail


the Coledale fells clearing with a bit of sunshine


zooming in on the southern arm of the Coledale horseshoe


sun on the fields looking northwest to Bassenthwaite Lake


looking back towards Skiddaw in the cloud
