Taken in July 2009, a view across Buttermere towards Green Crag, Haystacks and the northern buttresses of High Crag and High Stile.

Alfred Wainwright, the author of what are regarded as the definitive guides to Lakeland fell walking, left instructions that his ashes be scattered by Innominate Tarn on the top of Haystacks. And he left the following comment......"And if you, dear reader, should get a bit of grit in your boot as you are crossing Haystacks in the years to come, please treat it with respect. It might be me!"


(Apologies for not having been around much yesterday.....the old back has been playing up something nasty and could not sit at computer for long. Can only take quick look and "click" meantime. Sorry about that. Hopefully will settle soon.)

Details: ISO 640, 1/80 sec. at f/22.0. Viewing LARGE is I feel worthwhile if time permits.

Many thanks to all who voted for and commented on "Mauve Dahlia"......as always. I appreciate your attention.

Ronnie.

Good morning Ronnie,
Yu must have felt quite at home there as it looks like Scotland, in fact, I thought it was at first, until I read the title. Not just because of that but it's a grand place and you have shown it well here.
Sorry to hear of your back problem Ronnie, afraid the knowledge of this must mut have been given during one of my missing periods, hope you're able to get over it soon.
Rgds., Jim

A very beautiful capture of this delight location, Ronnie, viewing this large is a must. Love how the light is catching the hillside in the middle distance.
Do hope your back's soon feeling better.
Take care,

Another of your superb lnascapes, Ronnie. Love the delicate reflection in the Lake and the moody sky. Foreground rocks make such a good lead-in too. Hope that you soon recover from the back problem. So disabling. Re cup cakes, nope! Was banana loaves and loads of scones!
