this afternoon's walk after a very wet morning: Portinscale bridge, nowhere near Derwentwater foot followed by Nichol End


very high water in the River Derwent near Portinscale bridge

sun on the River Derwent


Latrigg reflected in flooded fields beside the river


looking to Clough Head across the floods


zooming in on Skiddaw with Carlsleddam in front


looking over the river and part of Portinscale to Causey Pike


Derwentwater from the garden of Derwentwater Hotel


this is Derwentwater foot at the moment - the spot where we usually decide whether to take the riverside path or the direct one


nice for the ducks though!


very soggy beside the path as I return to the hotel


Latrigg with Blencathra behind as I approach from the other end of our usual circuit


I don't get very far!
