High Street, Lake District

This is our second day at the Lakes this year. While I decided to go walking around Brothers Water [visitcumbria.com], Mirjam stayed in campsite. I decided to go and have a peek around High Street [en.wikipedia.org]. No shops though…
Instead you find anther batch of stunning view and a fell to bag!

After first 3/4 mile I found this lovely spot. Absolute postcard!
And then I thought - I shall use my tripod to capture it. Light, setting, colours - all seemed perfect. Took out my tripod and camera… and then realised I had left the camera shoe to the campsite. Rewind one hour in time - I looked at bright sky and thought to myself there's no need for the tripod today. Fast forward another 30 minutes in Brothers Water car park felt I might still need that tripod. Without a look at the camera (as the shoe is either mounted to the camera or the tripod. Period. Always.) I hit the peak. And carried that extra 2.5kg weight wilt me for another 5 miles. Top stuff!

Half way to Hayeswater. Still cursing my choice to carry the tripod.

Hayeswater Gill

Helvellyn, if I am not mistaken. Slightly unsure which one…

You can see Brothers Water, Deepdale and St Sunday Crag. Or at least I can.

The Knott. At 739m it was too damn exposed to stay there for more than 2 minutes. One of the walkers mentioned it to be a bit blowy up there… For those not too familiar with English it means - a bloody windy!

En route to High Street.

High Street. Patterdale and Angle Tarn to your left, Stony Cove Pike to your right. Wanted to go there this year, but could not be asked as it was later that afternoon already.

Beacon at 784m. Lovely spot with stunning views.

A very quick descent from the Beacon. Doesn't seem so harsh from here, does it? Try it for yourself!

Threshthwaite Mouth. Now that is a mouthful! Who comes with the names like these!? See also Thwaites Brewery [en.wikipedia.org].

Another look at the Brothers Water from the aforementioned place.

Stony Cove Pike and the three walkers. Seems craggy enough to invite back the next time.

Pasture Beck. With loads of cattle hanging around the stream could not have more original name. Indeed.

Another take of the Pasture Beck and the landscape.
