Infamy!

By MrsS    
First off - apols to those who voted and commented, but, MrS pointed out that it had lost all it's "zing" - - hopefully we've got that sorted now - so - - for the second time

Spent a lovely day out today with Derby (sut68) & Joan (Tandberg)!

Seriously, they behaved like an old married couple all day, constantly bickering, and trying to outdo each other! It was a lot of fun being referee, tho'

Anyway, the light didn't play ball much, certainly not at Castlerigg, did a bit at Derwentwater, but we eventually cut our losses and headed for Scaleber.

I'm being to think that Mr Sutton has dusted off the insurance policies - - a really horrid descent, followed by sliding around on unbelievably slippery rock, yet again (still haven't recovered from the Northumberland "experience") hence the title :

In the words of the late Kenneth Williams :


Quote:"Infamy! Infamy! They've all got it infamy!"


Anyway, I hope you had a gr8 Saturday - - time for a glass or two and a Chinese


Oh, this is hdr from 3 images -2 0 +2

Thanks for looking, all comments really welcome (except yours, Danny! - - unless you're being nice, of course, since this isn't one of your Northumberland Castles! )

Cheers!

Oh, and guess who got a wet b.t.m. (again!)

The main fall is excellent Fran, just about a perfect capture I would say. Some slightly strange tones in the bottom right one, but I am guessing that was the reality.

A fine shot.

Thanks Neil, there was definitely some evidence of "peaty" water, suspect that causes the colouration Smile
