That rare thing in the Lake District, a settled week’s landscape photography under the belt, and the driest spell we’ve had so far this year.
Unfortunately there was a brief but concentrated thaw in the hills preceding it, which means we’ve had our coldest, driest, calmest spell immediately after losing most of the snow.
Most of the higher fells are still in prime winter condition however, with both Helvellyn’s edges and the Scafell range holding good hard snow.
On the low fells and valleys the sunshine when present now has some warmth, but the wind still snarls. Winter isn’t over yet. Here are a couple from Low Fell from earlier in the week. Crummock Water, layers of fells, and one of the best views there is.
You can find Low Fell in my Top Ten Walks to Viewpoints book, available here now.
