Morning Mist on Harrop Tarn

By WeeGeordieLass    
I set my alarm at 3.30 am to get to Harrop Tarn for 5.30.

The sunrise I had hoped for wasn't to be but I wasn't bothered.,'s the "getting out there" that I love.

We drove in the pitch dark up the western side of Thirlmere, there were cute little rabbits everywhere on the road, darting around in our headlights, so glad to report that we didn't flatten any of them!

It's hard collar walking up the really steep hill to the tarn, heart pounding and heavy breathing kind of hard collar...well, for someone as unfit as me that is!!

But when I got there it was beautiful. I love to see morning mist sat on top of still water. It was so peaceful and quiet - just what I needed.

Definitely on my list of locations to return to when Autumn arrives in all it's glory.
Hope you enjoy the view too.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look

Make sure you wrap up well on any Autumnal jaunts.
I agree with you in principle.
I like the feeling of having the world to myself.
Terrific picture.
Award worthy if I had any left.
