Three days walking with a pal last week (a fellow human, that is, not just the camera!) Great Langdale first, Pike of Blisco from Blea Tarn. All K70 + Sigma 17-70 (the lightest combination I have, I think.) All comments welcomed, as usual. Hope you enjoy these as much as I did taking them!

1 Blea Tarn


3 Wrynose Pass

4 Panoramic view

5 Nearing the top

6 Crinkle Crags and Bowfell

7 Windermere

All I could think of when I saw these was, 'this is a breath of fresh air.' Then the images, what a great place to walk and you capture them so well, John, (especially the first two.)
Be well, stay safe.

I like them all but number 2 has the foreground interest and then the view of distant hills, lovely shot.

K1000, Espio 140, ist, istD, K70, K3iii and numerous lenses, just don't tell my wife.

Thanks for all your comments, folks. We certainly did enjoy the walk, Neil - there's no better way to spend a day out in my opinion!

Your posting of Blea Tarn resulted in me being up there today. Weather was excellent as in your very admirable shots. Super location. Took far too many images.

However, I couldn't get to your other spots due to Arth & Itis.

So thank you for posting these.

Best regards

What a tranquill looking spot (s) how did you maanage photos in the lakes with no people in them?.Good work
C&C welcome.

Gary, first time I'm aware of that someone has gone somewhere because of a photo I took! Glad you had good weather too. I always come back from the Lakes with far too many photos taken so I know what you mean - it's always "Wow, what a view!" then five minutes later " an even better one!" of exactly the same subject and so on and on.
Don, it is a tranquil spot with maybe enough narrow, winding roads for access to deter people a bit. Access by motorbike is probably a good way to get there.
Thanks for commenting, both of you!
