this morning's short walk: Derwentwater foot

still a lot of Mallard on the pond ..

.. and a lot of mud on the paths

the invaluable boardwalk with the very high River Derwent behind

looking up the river towards Derwentwater ..

.. which is high and choppy

chaos at the outflow

zooming in on sunshine on Longside Edge

looking back towards Clough Head and Great Dodd

the Coledale fells from Portinscale back road

this afternoon's short walk: Keswick to Portinscale

zooming in on Causey Pike and Barrow from the Howrah path

Catbells beneath a stormy sky

very wet in the fields looking towards Dodd and Carlside

zooming in on Grisedale Pike and Portinscale bridge

brightening up over Skiddaw as I reach the bridge
