If you were to make a list of the most captivating fells in the Lake District, those you could gaze upon endlessly and climb and climb again, I'm guessing Great Mell Fell would sit pretty low down on that list. Or possibly not feature at all.
However it offers many rewards for the photographer, admittedly mainly as a position to point the lens from rather than towards. Despite being small in stature, its isolated situation means it offers excellent views in most directions, from Blencathra round to the Dodds, Helvellyn and Ullswater's surrounding fells.
It also offers trees of plentiful character, trees that have lived a life and show it, from slanting enchanting larches to solitary unbowed pines such as this one.
