this morning's walk: Catbells


starting up Catbells - my car was the first in the tiny carpark


Derwentwater from the ascent path looking across to misty Walla Crag


looking down on Otterbield Bay


looking down the ridge I have just come up


mist over Swinside


looking over Newlands Valley to more mist


looking down the ridge from higher up with mist clearing over Swinside


reaching the first top with the main summit ahead


looking down on the head of Derwentwater


zooming in on some mist over Littletown


looking back down the ridge - although first in the carpark I am not first on the summit


the start of the descent path to Catbells Terrace


the path heading down into Borrowdale


another shot on the descent path


Derwentwater from the descent path


a viewpoint into Borrowdale


zooming in on King's How and Grange from the viewpoint


Walla Crag above the trees as I head towards Catbells Terrace


looking back along Catbells Terrace


looking forward along the terrace with a Keswick launch on the lake


Brandlehow and Abbot's Bays with the wake of the launch now on the other side of the lake


a stormy shot looking towards the now emerging sun


another shot back to King's How


mist lifting over Latrigg ..


.. and a blue sky above the mist enveloping Skiddaw


zooming in on sunshine on Derwent Island with its large house - Latrigg behind
