today's walk (Keswick rambling club): Fellbarrow, Low Fell and Darling Fell


climbing up from the Loweswater road


a bit wet on the Mosser Fell road


leaving the road to climb onto Fellbarrow


looking north from the slopes of Fellbarrow with Carrick Fell very faintly across the Solway


approaching Fellbarrow summit


at the trig point on Fellbarrow


zooming in on Cockermouth from the top of Fellbarrow


leaving Fellbarrow summit with Low Fell ahead


a hazardous stile which I shall report to Larry, one of the Lake District National Park rangers


looking north to sunshine on the Wharrels Hill wind turbines


looking over Lorton Vale to Whiteside and Crummock Fell


heading for the top of Low Fell


Crummock Water from the true summit of Low Fell


descending from the south top to the viewpoint cairn


looking into the valley from the viewpoint cairn


descending towards Darling Fell


Buttermere, Crummock Water and Mellbreak from Darling Fell


zooming in on Buttermere with Haystacks and the Gables beyond


at the cairn on Darling Fell


descending the west ridge of Darling Fell


the head of Loweswater from the path


leaving the west ridge


serious water erosion on the Mosser Fell road


can never resist photographing this bit of abandoned farm machinery


descending towards Loweswater with MellbreaK ahead
