this morning's short walk before the forecasted rain: Hodgson How

signs of spring

just a wee bit of cloud on Skiddaw

Hodgson How from the overgrown old railway line

remnants of the old railway

storm damage partly blocking progress along the line

the Coledale fells westwards as I leave the railway

zooming in over Braithwaite to Grisedale Pike

zooming in over Portinscale to Great Dodd

zooming in on Bassenthwaite Lake

the higher west top from the east top with the Coledale fells behind

looking over the A66 to Blencathra and Latrigg

the Coledale fells from Portinscale back road

after lunch the sun was shining so I walked to Derwentwater foot:

sunshine in Portinscale back road

folk ahead of me as I zoom in over Keswick to Clough Head

sun on the Derwentwater Hotel with Dodd behind

maybe it is going to rain because here is the suspicion of a rainbow

very choppy at Derwentwater foot

looking down the River Derwent to Latrigg

Mallard at the pond
