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
