Overlooking Keswick and Derwent Water

Overlooking Keswick and Derwent Water. (Click on the photo for added detail.)

Continuing from last week’s post, this is the view of Keswick and Derwentwater I mentioned. Though we visited in spring, we were surprisingly lucky with the weather, with mostly bright days and no rain. Not the best for photography, but it does make the heart more joyful while walking among the fells and lakes. I chose to go with a composition that gave some context to the felltop itself. This one is as gentle as they come, with a well-defined path and grassy slopes (that become much steeper further out). There is a parking area part of the way up this fell, with good paths leading to the top, making it one of the more accessible fells.

As I took this photo, a couple of sheep and their lambs were munching away at the grass, a few metres from where I was. As is normal for Cumbrian sheep, they’re very used to people walking about, and my presence did not bother them in the least. For me, this photo brings back memories of a peaceful and quiet felltop, and of a few other walkers I passed along the way.
