It was a grey old day in the south Lakes
today even though the morning had promised much with bright sunshine
everywhere. I had a walk to Lingmoor Fell with friend Ken and the views
ended up being non-existent but it was really quite calm and pleasant
despite the cool temperature.
Blake Rigg and Blea Tarn.
Side Pike through the gap in the wall, the Langdale
Pikes beyond are lost in mist.

Dougal checks out Lingmoor Tarn.
Time for a dip.
Heading for Side Pike. There is already a group of
walkers up there.
Ken tries to push the rock out of the way but can't
quite manage it.
Breathe in and form an orderly queue at the squeeze.
Looking back towards Blea Tarn and the Coniston fells.
Back at Blea Tarn.
