The Lion and the Lamb. The Lake District

The Lion and the Lamb is quite a famous view as you can see it on your drive up/down Dunmail raise on the way to Keswick. It’s up on Helm Crag which is next to Grasmere. At the top, there is a clump of rocks that from a distance look like a lion and a lamb. I liked how the low sunlight lit up the back of Helm crag leaving the front in shadow

This is the view from near Grasmere looking up at the Lion and the lamb. I had just climbed up there and this is definitely the best angle to see it from as from the top it’s hard to tell which rocks are which

Great Langdale in the clouds above Easedale tarn. The Lake District

Looking down onto Easedale tarn from Helm Crag as the clouds roll over the tops briefly revealing Great Langdale. You can see a group of people down by Easedale tarn in the sunlight. Apparently, they’d camped there the night before… Tougher people than me

This was taken from on top of Helm Crag in the English Lake District, it’s quite a popular walk from Grasmere as there is a rock formation that looks like a lion and a lamb on the top. I was more impressed with this view over the tarn and up to Great Langdale than I was of the rocks though

A Lone tree and stone walls in the Lake District

On the way down from Helm crag I spotted this lone tree in the valley. It had lost all of its leaves but it was still eye-catching as it had some colour remaining from the moss that was growing on the trunk. There was also a stone wall zigzagging its way into the valley up into the snow scattered fells.

The sun was trying to make an appearance but it only lit up half of the scene leaving the fells on the left-hand side in the shadows

Mist rising behind the canadian geese as the Herdwick sheep walk down the track. The River Brathay

It was a calm and peaceful morning at the river Brathay near Elterwater. The water was still, the mist was rising and you could see a faint reflection of the trees in the water. And then the Geese arrived. Just by looking at them you could tell they were about to swim down the river and into the frame.

I thought this might be the end of the photos in this direction but I stuck it out to see what they did. It was quite nice to get some wildlife in there. After a little while, the Herdwick sheep in the fields decided they were going to move to a different field and they walked down the path 1 by 1. It framed up nicely as they were spaced out

Early morning mist rising over the frosty grass. The River Brathay

Stood on the side of the river Brathay near Elterwater waiting for the sunrise. The mist was rising over the river and slowly rising and going over the fields. I liked how the big tree stood out as well as the remains of the fence posts by the water’s edge. There was still the remains of the frost from the night before, it soon thawed out as the sun came up but it added a nice layer of frost onto the ground to make the image look as cold as it felt.

I waited watching the mist to see if it was going to get thicker, eventually, it rose up a bit higher flowing over the fence post on the edge of the river adding some atmosphere to the photograph

Autumn on the river Brathay. The Lake District

The sun was starting the break through the trees as it was rising giving a glow to the Autumn trees on the edge of the river Brathay. The Herdwick sheep were walking around in the field behind the tree, completing the Lake District landscape scene.

Once the sun was a bit higher it lit up the side of the two big trees on the edge of the River BRathay casting their reflections into the water. There was no wind so the water was like a mirror with no waves or ripples adding to the calmness of the morning. The sheep walked from the river’s edge between the trees and then up to where I was stood for better grazing

A Herdwick sheep reflecting in the autumn colours on the River Brathay. The Lake District

A Herdwick sheep stood under an Autumn tree on the edge of the river Brathay as the sun was rising and the mist was rising from the water.

This sun caught me off guard as I didn’t expect to see the sunrise from here. Fortunately, it came up bright and hit the back of the trees pretty harshly giving a glow to the left-hand side of the tree which contrasted with the shadows on the right as the light diffused through the tree. The sheep were walking around in the field all morning. Fortunately as the best of the light arrived they also walked into the frame completing the Lake District scene.

I probably should have got more photos of this morning but instead, I stood watching this until the best light was gone. It was the right decision. The views over to Great Langdale weren’t that clear once the light had passed.

Autumn trees surrounding Windermere . The Lake District

Stood up on a fell on the edge of Windermere at the start of Autumn. The colours were starting to change and I had views up to the Fairfield horseshoe as well as down onto the Ferry on the water.

The light was changing around pretty quickly as the sun was beginning to set and there were a few clouds in the sky. Fortunately, the sun came out as the boat made it’s way up the water which was good timing. Totally out of my control but I’m glad it all lined up. The sun was setting behind me which meant the front of the boat was all it up nicely
