this morning's short walk before rain set in: Derwentwater foot

still a lot of water in the River Derwent

zooming in on Skiddaw

looking over flooded fields to Latrigg

Derwentwater from the lawn of the Derwentwater Hotel

the boardwalk is not much above the river

looking back along the boardwalk ..

.. and as it ends the river has spilled over the path

a good thing I'm wearing wellies

looking back the right fork is the path I've just waded along

the lake is very high and rough

this is my exit path

Skiddaw is already in cloud (compare with the first picture)

Clough Head and Great Dodd

the Coledale fells from Portinscale back road
