At the end of August I set off on my annual holiday to Grasmere where I was due to help at Grasmere Sports and then to enjoy a few days with my camera.
Whilst in the Lake District at the end of August I experienced 2 sunrises which were both beautiful but different. On the last full day I set the alarm for 4.15am in order to give myself time to drive over the Kirkstone Pass to Ullswater and arrive an hour before sunrise.
The day after Grasmere Sports I woke up and staggered to the window for weather investigation purposes. It was foggy but through my yawns I realised that this would burn off and hopefully produce some amazing effects. Quick. Quick. Where should I go?
In addition to standing and admiring the Langdale Pikes from every conceivable angle I did get out and about elsewhere in the Lake District. I decided that I would explore some different places which led me to the Duddon Valley and Dovedale (near Brotherswater).
