today's walk: Portinscale - Ullock - Little Braithwaite - Newlands Valley - Newlands Beck - A66


very wet on the Portinscale to Ullock path


looking over Ullock to Causey Pike and Barrow


Grisedale Pike from a boggy gateway


looking back at the flooded lane - the slopes of Swinside on the right


looking up Newlands Beck from the bridge at Little Braithwaite


zooming in on Dale Head


snowdrops at Little Braithwaite ..


.. and more on the other side of the road


zooming over Portinscale to Latrigg with Blencathra beyond ..


.. and over Braithwaite to Barf


wet approaching Braithwaite Lodge Farm


looking down over Braithwaite Lodge to Braithwaite, Braithwaite How and Bassenthwaite Lake with Binsey in the far distance


descending into Newlands Valley


the track to Uzzicar Farm with Catbells beyond


zooming in on Maiden Moor and the High Spy ridge


water on the track to Newlands Beck with Swinside ahead


the bridge over Newlands Beck


Skiddaw starting to appear temporarily out of the cloud


I make a diversion off the right of way to photograph this old farm implement which I have seen from the A66 many times


looks as if it was some sort of rake


looking up Newlands Valley


the Coledale fells from Portinscale back road


zooming in on Grisedale Pike
