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


snowdrops
