this morning's walk: Derwentwater foot and the Howrahs path to Keswick


it rained hard all night leading to a dramatic change in the outlook this morning


no ice or snow on Portinscale back road ..


.. and most of the snow washed off Clough Head and Great Dodd


the Derwentwater Hotel and Skiddaw


a lot of water in Derwentwater and rather windy


zooming in on Bleaberry Fell and High Seat


a pair of swans with 5 well grown cygnets swimming up towards the lake


looking across the swollen River Derwent from near Portinscale bridge


Skiddaw and a field full of geese from the other side of the bridge


the path to Keswick with Clough Head and Great Dodd ahead


a bit of sun on the Skiddaw massif


zooming back to Grisedale Pike and Portinscale bridge


Catbells, Hindscarth and Robinson seen across flooded fields from the path


zooming in on Hindscarth and Robinson


zooming in on Catbells and Hindscarth


Grisedale Pike and more geese on the way home
