Setting off from Ambleside

It's a lovely day for a walk

The views are particularly clear today

The Langdales stand out

Zooming in on the Langdales . . .

and Ambleside with Windermere in the background

Time for elevenses

The two Brians

Looking towards Scandale Head

We make our way down to . . .

High Sweden Bridge . . .

which crosses Scandale Beck

the photographer reviews his shot of the bridge . . .

while Phil takes one from the other side

Is this a folly?

A convenient tree provides the ideal spot for lunch

Then we head for . . .

Stockghyll Force waterfalls . . .

on the way back . . .

to Ambleside
