TRICKLE. (16/10/14)

It was raining for most of the night so I decided to wander round to Lodore Falls again. It hadn’t rained enough. I have decided to stay here till the twenty fourth so there is plenty of time yet for a deluge and a good waterfall.

_MG_0667    Derwentwater and Skidaw again. It’s another still morning.

_MG_0666    The falls are just behind this tree.

_MG_0677      In a wood.

_MG_0674

_MG_0676      These are both about 2 minute exposures. This gully needs to be about half full of water for a good show.

Tomorrow I will have to go into Keswick for food. I will do my best to avoid George Fischer’s as I don’t need anything but if I succumb and enter I will find that I come out with socks, shirts and heaven forbid a new pair of boots.

That’s all for today.

    1. Annie, I have been lucky here so far this year. It looks as if the rain will be back next week.

  2. Sounds a bit like the old Ronnie Barker shop Arkwrights, open all hours.

    1. Peter, G,Fisher is a very high quality outdoor shop. Brilliant it is.

  3. When it comes to outdoor gear you are like a drug addict and George Fisher is just one of your nationwide network of dealers. Maybe you should go into rehab - wearing only a lilac shellsuit and trainers.

    1. YP, I am fine for clothes. My jacket or the eldest one is a good ten years old but still almost waterproof. I will not go in George Fisher.

  4. gorgeous photos

    So what's wrong with a new pair of boots. For a hiker, you can never have too many pairs of boots, so you always have a dry pair to put on for the next leg

    1. R.Mac, I have two pairs so am fine. Modern boots don't leak so dry out fast.

    1. Hilary, the weather is unbelievable. I shouldn't moan but it is a little unsettling.

  6. Adriaan you are allowed to buy hip boots if you want to see the waterfalls.

    1. Bas. I went down to the water but the view is worse. I couldn't see anything. Long boots are no good for walking in.

  8. I was thinking the first one was a painting too, it looks that good. It's supposed to be thunder tonight round your way so expect a heat wave

    1. Douglas, it does look a little unsettled. It's very warm. I'm hoping the beck will get going for some pictures on Saturday. I may leave it till Monday as it attracts a lot of folk.

  9. Awesome reflections. It's very hard , as far as I'm concerned, to take photos in a forest.

    1. Red, forest pictures only work if there are beams of sunlight. A polarising filter helps to boost colour and cut reflection from leaves. It wouldn't have mattered too much here if there had been more water in the beck.

  10. Great forest photos, I could have watched that for hours.

    1. Pauline, It is a great autumn for colour. I enjoy food shopping but not clothes shopping.

    1. Maria, I love still mornings, a bit of mist and things would be as good as they get.

  13. Boots in George Fisher, you must be in the money :-)
    Excellent study of Skiddaw

    1. Jay, it is an expensive shop. I have never had anything from there that hasn't been perfect. I still have a multilayer jacket that works and it's ten years old. That works out cheap.
