During half-term late October 2021 Eric, Jennifer and I went to the Lake District for a week of walks, sightseeing and photography. Mikee was on her first month at Bath University. The autumn colours had just started to appear a little. The first days we had great weather, but thereafter it was lots of rain and heavy clouds that made our walks wet and cold and limited the possibilities for my photography. The first evening we arrived at Windermere just as the sun was about to set, but I hurried up to a viewpoint –Queen Adelaide’s Hill – just outside the town of Windermere and overlooking lake Windermere.
After this first evening we stayed in one hotel in Borrowdale near Derwentwateer and another near Ambleside at Lake Windermere. The slide show below illustrates what we saw. The images reflect the weather: A beautiful landscape in a dark and moody atmosphere, but with slivers of sunshine brightening up our views and experiences.
