BRIGHTER. (15/10/14)

It is a much better morning. We are blessed with the odd patch of sunlight. I’m going out looking for fungi in a while but here are some autumn colours.

_MG_0651   The water was flat calm but the dogs beat me to it and decided it was swim time, hence the ripples. I said. “Well Bless My Soul, please get out of there my little angels.”

_MG_0653     Falcon Crag.

_MG_0657     Shepherd’s Crag.

_MG_0663    Derwentwater and Skidaw.

That’s all for today. I can hear Barn Owls at dusk so will go and have a look for them after tea. I’m not expecting any pictures but will take the long lens and do my best.

    1. YP, I've not been yet. I am having problems with the pictures I sent to Sheffield for printing. Nearly sorted, I hope. I have a curry on the go but breakfast was not as exciting. Porridge followed by a slice of toast and Marmite.

    1. Jean, I will have to go to Keswick Friday for food. I will stay another seven days. I want the temperature to drop for early morning mist.
      I only walk a few miles a day but it is a compact area.

  3. I am not really following blogs in my busyness but thought I would like to check out your lovely photos regardless. Keep on keeping on, eh?

    1. John, I hope it is worth the time spent. I only get a few images a year that I print maybe a couple that I like. These are more a diary or record. Some images I produce come back to haunt me. I have no enthusiasm for them but folk tell me to let them print them. Then want paying. 'Sod Off' usually deters them.
      It's hard work being an idle bugger.

  4. That last shot is marvelous. I can just imagine the first one if the pups hadn't gone for a dip. I wish you'd gone back an hour later *wink*

    1. R.Mac, I get what I get. On our way back it was windy and spitting with rain. C'est la vie. Bad dogs.

  5. Great shots. I like the first image with the fall colors on the other side of the lake. The reflection is great in the last image.

    1. John I try to stay here once a year. It looks as if I'm too late for fungi. Just as well there are still leaves left.

  21. Not only do you have to battle the elements on occasions but you compete with the dogs for reflections, no doubt you have to be quick on your arrival.

    1. Jay, I have to be alert enough to get them to stay. I don't always succeed.
