this mornings's walk: a stroll near Rosthwaite to recover some shots of a galacial moraine needed for a book on geology


the Flock Inn in the centre of Rosthwaite


stepping stones across the River Derwent ..


.. I prefer to divert downstream to the bridge!


the stepping stones from the other side


zooming in on Eagle Crag ..


.. and on Castle Crag


this is the moraine I have come to photograph - here looking up Borrowdale to cloud covered Glaramara and Base Brown


looking along the moraine from its foot


looking back along the northern end with the river below


another look southwards


stormy sky over Glaramara and Base Brown ..


.. but the day is improving so I decide to wait for the sun


patience is rewarded - this the shot I need


turning a bit to the left Castle Crag squeezes into the picture


once more the shot for the book - the fell behind is Grange Fell


heading back north along the moraine


looking back southwards as I leave it


arriving back in Rosthwaite
