Out and about in the Lake District in 1998

Following on from my last blog post, here are the final pictures from that Lake District trip. It was rather cold up there and every so often you would see something that reminded you of this, this frozen waterfall is a good example.

I loved how this bridge was more than just stones as the local fauna dover the sides, making it look like a living bridge.

This is one of those images that has uses for presentations that talk about barriers. It was used to keep the sheep in the field…

Out and about in the Lake District

Back in 1998 I made a visit the Lake District, after quite a few years of visiting the place on a regular basis. These photographs are from that  trip, I posted some other photographs from this trip in an earlier blog post.

This is on the way down to Wasdale Head coming from the direction of Buttermere.

Mountains and hills in the Lake District

Back in 1998 I made one of my last visits to the Lake District, after quite a few years of visiting the place on a regular basis. These photographs are from that final trip, where in the Lake District, to be honest I have no real idea, but I think some of these are around Buttermere.

This was down by one of the lakes, no idea which one, but I think it’s Buttermere.

Even then I wasn’t sure where we were, just went with the flow with the group I was with at the time. This may have been after leaving Buttermere on the way to Wasdale Head.

In the Lake District

Back in 1998 I visited the Lake District and had a very enjoyable few days walking across the hills and valleys. Sadly I’ve not been back since (well I did go in 1999), not really had the chance or the time. Hoping that this year that may change. I think this is around Ennerdale.
