Lake District memories - Around Wastwater.
Lakeland giants around Wastwater.
Britan’s favourite view?
Looking at this picture you wouldn’t believe that this picture was voted Britain’s favourite view in a poll a couple of years ago, but take a look at the picture below and you’ll see that when the weather had improved slightly the potential is there.
What a difference a day and a bit of sunshine can make, I’m sure you’ll agree that the wait and the effort was worth it. Wastwater, England’s deepest lake can be seen in all it’s glory and those Lakeland giants Yewbarrow, Kirk, Great Gable and Lingmell dominate with the lower slopes of the Scafell massif creeping in on the right hand side. Of the views nominated I would have to agree that this was the best
What a difference a day makes.
Of the views nominated I would have to agree that this was the best, but this is one my favourite picture, which was taken many years ago from the slopes of Scafell Pike after a blizzard the night before and shows the mountains in a totally different light.
Taken from the Scafell massif that little white blob in the middle of the picture is the Wasdale Inn putting the height of the mountains into pesrspective. Yewbarrow, Kirk, Great Gable, Green Gable and Lingmell are visible.
Wasdale head in all its glory.
It was getting late by time I got off the mountain which made for some spectacular pictures.
What do you think is Britain's geatest View?
It's subjective of course, but why not let me know what Britain's best view is in your opinion.
All the best Mark
