Some pictures from the first two weeks of February.

The pictures below were taken on several days during the first two weeks of February. Short walks either from home or by taking the bus and walking back have often been the way to use limited time though the bus and walk back outing on the 15th was rather longer. At a little over eight miles it did take a while for an arthritic ankle!. Sadly on that day, whilst fine aand dry, it was a very hazy so no pictures of distant hills possible. So, the final shot of this set is the only one from that walk.

Sun Feb 1st. Roundhill Farm and "The Struggle" to Kirkstone Pass below the snowy ridge to Red Screes.

Sun Feb 1st. Looking W from a path above Ambleside towards Bowfell and the Langdale Pikes

Tues Feb 3rd. Starting a walk from Grasmere back to Ambleside looking across to Steel Fell with Helm crag on the left.

Tues Feb 3rd. From above White Moss Common an icy Rydal Water. That's Wansfell in the distance.

Thurs Feb 5th. The Langdale skyline from Todd Crag. Crinkle Crags in the centre and Bowfell on the extreme right.

Thurs Feb 5th. Ambleside from Todd Crag. The two prominent peaks on the skyline are Froswick and Ill Bell.

Sat Feb 7th. Sunset over Ambleside from the Kirkstone Road.

Sun Feb 8th. And next morning sunrise over the shoulder of Wansfell.

Mon Feb 9th. 2.15pm Cloud boiling over the ridge between Great Rigg and Fairfield on the Western arm of the Horseshoe.

Mon Feb 9th. Later in the afternoon a zoom shot towards Pike O'Stickle and Harrison Stickle with cloud rolling down into Langdale.

Thurs Feb 12th. 2.20pm. Tranquil Windermere from Holme Crag just south of Waterhead.

And finally......Sun Feb 15th. Half term holidays have started so time to take the bus to Hawkshead a walk on a lesser known way over the intervening ridge to the shore of Windermere. For the first couple of miles we saw only two other folk and three mountain bikers. However the Lake Shore track was heaving with walkers and bikers. Fortunately our chosen way used this busy track for only a mile or so of the whole eight mile route from Hawkshead back to Ambleside. This shot looking back to a small tarn beside the path on our way up to the ridge.
