The climb up to Pillar . The Lake District

A winters day on Pillar in the Lake District with patches of snow scattered on the fells. We decided to make our way up, starting from the Wasdale Head Inn and making our way up following the river. From this point, you could look down the track that people had used to walk through the middle of the snow leading up to the last ascent of Pillar. The track made for a nice leading line drawing your eye up the mountain.

I always try to hide my dad in the Landscape photos when we go out walking together, I stayed back and waited for him to get ahead and waited until he was in a good position, if you look closely you’ll be able to find him

The sun breaking through on to Great Gable . The Lake District 1

The sun breaking through on to Great Gable as the Herdwick sheep graze the fields from Wasdale Head. The sun was lighting up the fells above the Herdwick sheep and over the Church of St Olaf. Which you can faintly see in the trees. We didn’t really see any of this sun whilst up on Pillar but once we got back to the car there it was.

There was still a little bit of snow left higher up on the fells. The sunlight has created a divide on the fell between the snow and the grass

Wastwater from Great Gable

We started the walk from Seathwaite with the plan to go up to Napes needle and the Sphinx rock. We found Napes needle and made our way to little Hell gate we took a wrong turn somewhere and ended up walking straight up one of the screes… It wasn’t the most pleasant walk but we were awarded these views which made it worthwhile. From here you could look right down the full length of Wastwater and follow the river which was below us

Reflections on Wastwater. The Lake District

Wastwater is one of the best views in the Lake District so I went to get some photographs in the nicer light at sunset. The sun went down behind us, the colours of the screes and Great Gable were reflecting in the water creating large patches of colour in the reflections.

I found one of the boulders sticking out from the water and stacked on some rocks and bark. From here you got views up to Great Gable and all of the surrounding fells. There was no wind on the day so you could see through the water clear as there was no waves/ ripples. There are not many better places to spend the afternoon on a day like this

A Moody Wasdale Valley. The Lake District

We went to Wastwater with the aim of climbing up Scafell Pike, once we got into the Wasdale valley we soon realised that it may be a bit pointless climbing high as the view would be very limited and probably just clouds.

We headed up past Wastwater to the Wasdale Head Inn. On the road up to the pub, I jumped out to get a photo in the valley. The clouds were hanging low in the sky. The rain has given the road a light coating which gave off some reflections. It was one of those days that aren’t that great at the time, but when you look back you realise the views were still pretty great. Even though they weren’t what was planned

Wastwaterintheclouds

The weather hasn’t been great the last few days so when we saw a sunny spell we decided to head up to Wasdale to climb up to Pillar. We’d attempted this walk in the winter but we ran out of time.
