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
