Thirlmere and Raven Crag

Raven Crag is a popular place for walkers, climbers and wild campers. The direct path gets you up there quickly, and the views over Thirlmere to Helvellyn are a Lake District classic.

It had been my planned destination on this evening – it was a late start being reactive to some ominous looking cloud rolling in from the east, so I wanted something I could get up fast.

However, it’s such an impressive crag and was catching the late evening light as I ascended, so I decided to carry on past it along the forest road and try to find somewhere with open views that would include the crag in the shot itself.

After a bit of clambering around on woodland crags, I found an open rock shelf on the eastern fringes of The Benn that gave me the unobscured view I was after. The cloud and light did the rest.

The middle of these images is available to purchase as a print in the Helvellyn gallery, and the other two are, as always, available if requested.
