I have just returned from a week in the Lake District and for once the weather was extremely unreliable. This wasn’t a problem as I don’t like wall to wall hot sunshine, but the rain did make me rethink where to venture 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.
On Sunday 21 February Mark Littlejohn and Doug Chinnery organised a Photography Charity Fundraiser in aid of the Cumbria Flood Appeal. I was fortunate enough to secure a place on one of the walks. It was a gentle ramble from Glenridding up to Lanty's Tarn and Keldas with Russ Barnes, Mark Littlejohn and Colin Bell.
