A great photograph of Grasmere

Was suffering from a few wine flu symptoms this morning, but ... on Twitpic

This picture from twitpic shows what a professional photographer can do!

This was Grasmere yesterday- today its a misty moisty one, with very poor visibility.

Tree in its autumn colours, White Moss Wood, Grasmere

This old oak looks good in its autumn colours.
It stands at the point where you can see Grasmere looking one way, and Rydal Water looking the other way.

Nab Scar is in the background.

Rydal Water late afternoon October

Just looking through some photos I took on Wednesday, and was quite pleased with this one. The sun is dipping down over Silver Howe behind me, making that shadow.
The Lakes look so great at the momet ( when the sun shines) that even a hopeless amateur like me can take a pretty snap.
For some really great professional photos take a look at some posted by my Twitter friend Stewy

Autumn walk round Rydal Water

Its been a perfect autumn day.
Walking the Rydal round from White Moss House- how brilliant to be able step out of the door straight on to this wonderful walk.
Up the side of White Moss to Brockstone Cottage, along the coffin road to Rydal Mount.(Wordsworth's house) Then a wander round Rydal Hall gardens- looking really good now after the restoration project has had time to bed in.
Then crossing the road at the Badger Bar, back along the lake shore, through White Moss woods and home.
Taking my time, with a stop for a cup of Earl Grey at the Rydal hall tea rooms, 2 hours very well spent!
