Holme Fell

Superb clarity this morning!

Harter Fell

Clear blue skies on Harter Fell today..

Gummer’s How

It was a lot colder today than it has been during the rest of November, a real shock to the system but with the cold weather came clear skies.

The Dunnerdale Fells

It was sunny at home this morning but further inland over the Lakeland fells there was lots of low lying cloud.

High Street

Wow, how long has it been since I was up some of these fells? Well the last time I was on Gray Crags was in 2009

Grizedale Forest

Some of the art installations that featured recently on the Sky Arts programme Landmark ended up in Grizedale Forest so Louise, the dogs and I visited to have a closer look. It was a fascinating programme to watch and see how the sculptures were created and brilliant to be able to get to see them […]

Beacon Fell

The dogs were sprung from the boarding kennels this morning after we had been away for a few days.

Helvellyn via Striding Edge

Well, here we are again! It took some time from the previous post to get a follow up but at last I have managed it.

Coniston Old Man sunrise

Today looked like it would be a promising one with the prospect of crystal clear views with sub zero temperatures overnight…


Today seemed to be the best bet for some decent wintry weather…

Coniston Old Man

Today looked to be a good day for a walk on the fells…

Gummer’s How sunset

There was just enough time to catch the rapidly fading light tonight to make it up to Gummer’s How.

Blawith Knott

It’s been a long time, but better late than never…

Dunnerdale Fells

There isn’t much real winter weather around but I suppose that does have its own merits…

High Pike

‘Caldbeck fells are worth all England else’ so the saying goes…

Holme Fell

There was wall to wall sunshine today, it was absolutely gorgeous…

Gummer’s How

I just had time for a walk at the beginning of the day today…


What a beautiful day for a walk out in lovely winter conditions…

Harter Fell

The warm weather has continued for a couple of weeks in Cumbria and the Lakes…

Scafell Pike

Today we had a walk up to the Scafells – I had intended to climb Great End via Skew Gill…

Great Gable

I hadn’t planned to walk today but the weather looked fabulous first thing this morning so I decided to head for Wasdale and Great Gable.
