Welcome to my blog.
Don't expect anything too high-tech or flashy, this is simply a 'diary' to share some of my photos, thoughts and observations - with a particular bias towards the natural world and the countryside around my home.

Following the river through Keswick you get to Derwent Water. Fine views across the water towards the peak of Catbells are to be had from Friar's Crag - even when the weather is a little inclement.
Normally, we would have had a walk around the lake, but the water was doing it's best to hamper this and the footpaths were flooded. So we had to make do with the view from the crag.
Some of the pines which grow on Friar's Crag have their roots exposed which make for a good picture, but not so good to walk around.
One more picture through the pine trees before the weather takes over again and a heavy shower forces us to take cover again.
