Returning from Peel Castle the clouds were rather dramatic so we made a detour up the Kingsdale Valley not far from Kirkby Lonsdale.

Maggie & I spent some time in early Oct at Hodge Close which is part of an old slate mining area in the Lake District. Colours had just started to turn.
Hodge Close from above.
A lone birch growing in the tailings looking north. Colours barely starting.
The trees are gradually reclaiming the scar of the tailings.
There are signs warning of danger all around but people seem free to roam at their own risk.
A few rays of sun catching some riverside grasses at Pooley Bridge at the north end of Ullswater.
By the time we arrived at the south end of Ullswater, it was pouring rain. We waited and waited but the sun never managed to break through the clouds. So I shot the lake steamer through the rain soaked windshield resulting this painterly effect.
At Kirkstone Pass, it was still heavily overcast so I took this silhouette shot of a lone tree high on the hillside.
Lovely day for a walk in the Lake District. A low level walk from Elterwater.
Couple enjoying the view of the Langdale Pikes across Elter Water.
Interesting metal ridge crossing River Brathay
