this afternoon's short walk: Derwentwater foot


Derwentwater from the garden of Derwentwater Hotel


robin near the pond - possibly the same one we saw before our depature to Scotland for Christmas ..


so tame it settled on Rowland's stick


obvious that water has been over this boardwalk and washed up a lot of debris


looking up the River Derwent towards the lake


high water at Derwentwater foot ..


.. and this big branch which used to be out in or beside the lake (depending on water level) has been washed well inland


looking down the River Derwent from near its outflow


remnants of flooding with Skiddaw in the distance


looking back along the sodden path to Clough Head and Great Dodd


zooming in over Keswick to Clough Head


storm damage on Portinscale back road with Grisedale Pike in the distance


Swinside, Causey Pike and Barrow from the back road
