No Money and no Money due in So no Holidays for two and a Half Years!
Still without leaving our own County in that Time, we still manage to enjoy OurSelves

Took a week out for Camping in the Lakes and Walked the Cliff trail from Whitehaven to St Bees, Good weather but cold and luckily even better Beer

Most but not all taken with the Siggy 8-16...

Great shots! Good eye, and that lens seems to be working very nicely.
If you've got to stay somewhere, the lake district is as good a place as anywhere!
All my photos are with 8 year old cameras ...
645D, 35mm, SDM 55mm, FA75mm, FA150mm f/2.8 and K-5, Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8, DA* 50-135mm, Samyang 8mm, other miscellaneous stuff...

Nice set. I particularly like the two shots of trunks reflecting in the water.

Really interesting to see your new Siggy in action

Some of my vaguely better stuff

With this within reach, why would you want to go anywwhere else? I am simply jealous of your access to such inspiring scenery.
Whichever way I go just ten miles and I see the sea and not that inspiring at all and it costs an arm and a leg to cross that sea.
In your shoe's I would be counting my lucky stars.
Magical pics,by the way. You have a very good eye for a picture

I wish I had such scenery available for a staycation! Or did you really travel and mean you stayed in the UK?
Even so I am jealous.

Thoramay - the IOW has some lovely scenery, and some wild bits too, but I can imagine it gets a bit tedious if you live there, especially if you are not so mobile.

Some nice shots - 4 and 5 stand out for me.

There are worse places to be 'stranded'. I will probably be in the same boat this year but can console myself with the fact that like you - I am lucky enough to live in an area that attracts thousands of tourists paying a fortune to come and visit and I can photograph it for free any time I like!

No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more

Thanks for all the positive comments
We live in Carlisle which is a short bus ridee from the Lake District and the Solway Coast shots are about n Hours Cycle away from our House. So Travel costs to get to all the Locations above probably didn't amount to Twenty five Quid!
Add to that Sixteen quid for the two night stay at Langdale National Trust Campsite, make for a pretty cheap week really!

Nice work jules, I think I reconise a few of the locations,I lived in Lancaster for a few years and had the odd "jaunt up t' lakes"
And the Solway Firth is beautiful in the spring.

I'll add this Couple from Yesterdays Bikeride onto Burgh Marsh.
K5 with the Siggy 8-16 again, they go together pretty well...
