Red Screes, Lake District

On the first day after arrival we walked onto Red Screes. This is a beautiful place from where you can get maybe the best views across the Lakes. It's about 760m above sealevel and you have to scrable only less than 300m to get there. That is when starting from the Kirkstone Pass [kirkstonepassinn.com] car park. Once you are back down again, get a decent meal and wash it down with a pint of - you guessed it - Red Screes (local real ale).

We all have a cock-up every now and again. But this time I managed to turn a right old pig's ear out of the session by leaving ISO on 640…
You can judge the results.

Happily… ehhh… on top and looking for shelter from gusts.

This was a bottom of a pond. Last September it was two feet deep…

A view towards Brothers Water/Glenriddig (North Lakes).

Boundary outpost… or something similar on a 45 degree slope.

This may seem insignificant. Please notice the roots of the rowan tree. It had broken a good few years ago and tehn decided to reach for the sun once more.

There are actually two sheep on the photo. You have to take my word for it.

Another experiment trying to capture energy [nikon.com]. f2.8, 1/8000 sec.

Time out! Break before descending another 200m. Or in other words, half a mile walk.
