By the time we got up to the forest it was mid afternoon!! Plenty of adequate light for walking and cycling, but not really enough for good photos - particularly without the tripod. I wanted the glimpse of Derwent Water - somewhat distant by eye, it is completely insignificant in the photograph. Thank goodness we are in an age of 'almost free' digital photos. With my poor skills I would never have risked wasting film and processing. At least these go some way to giving you a flavour of the views which we enjoyed:
Not even a glimpse of a lake on the last one, but I wanted to keep this as a reference of the blend of colours on the fells in the background.
My latest 'daisies'. Well the shape is very 'daisy-like' - but these are wearing the autumn colours of chrysanthemums.
A brooch this time, but a small bag, purse and needlecase planned - amongst others.
