A Week in Borrowdale

During my recent holiday near Grange, in addition to standing and sitting on Ashness Jetty I was able to explore other parts of the Borrowdale valley and the area around Derwentwater and Buttermere.  

The weather wasn't great for photography although I have to say it was lovely to be able to sit by the water and enjoy the glorious scenery without enduring the permutations of being windswept, cold or wet.

I fell in love with the north shore of Crummockwater as it completely devoid of people and the woods and shoreline were a delight to explore.  I also enjoyed what was left of the bluebells at Rannerdale and I shall make a concerted effort to visit in early May next year.  It has to be a spectacular sight to see the hillsides completely transformed into a blue carpet.

I visited Moss Force at the top end of the Newlands Valley expecting it to be very dry.  Although it wasn't spectacularly forceful I did enjoy capturing the different streams of water that were falling and rolling over the rocks.  It is certainly worth more visits to capture all it's moods.
