Winter!

There’s hardly a dearth of blog posts on here with a palette of blue and white, but this is fresh, local, organic, new season blue and white 😉

Yep, winter is back, and let’s hope the extent of last week’s snowfall is an omen for an exciting season ahead.

A couple of days previously I had a rather bleak jaunt up Helvellyn. The conditions will remain in my memory for while – mainly because I think some of the hailstones breached my corneas and are still lodged in the back of my brain somewhere.

Sunday was a different winter experience, a straightforward fun frivolous blue sky walk from Ambleside over Heron Pike, Great Rigg and Fairfield then down to Grasmere.

Clear blue skies are no fun for serious landscape photography, but on days like this the hills are an utter joy to walk amongst and a reminder of simpler happier days, before photography got in the way.

The photos are equally fun and non taxing, so I’ll witter on no longer and allow you to browse a selection from the day below.

A couple of these have made it to the image galleries by request, and you can view them larger there.
