Back into the Lakes

Over the weekend we had a strange light in the Lakes, it looked like a 'sea fret' over the mountains, but maybe it's just Autumn light! Decided to walk up ' The Nab' a steep hill at the end of the Martindale valley.

Silhouetted fells towards High Street 
I'm lucky to say that these weren't the old wild beasties we saw, from the summit we spy ed a herd of  Red deer.

Derwent Isle
1st day back into painting, spent the morning in my studio, scraped the 1st attempt, then moved outdoors in the afternoon with the warm sunshine drying the watercolours at an amazing speed, there was no time for dilly dallying. I'm going to demonstrate this on Wednesday morning to a Keswick groupe of artists.
Cycled round the lake just as the sun was setting, Derwentwater was glorious sparkling with warm orange hues.What capped it all,we passed Sir Chris Bonnington returning from a Borrowdale climb.
