The weather is changing in Lakeland, gloves and warm jackets were needed today, I can't believe only last week I was painting outside in Keswick with no jacket needed.But the light is so clear, you can see for miles and the colours are just beautiful. After a day of inside work, what better place than an stroll to the Lake edge. I love this time of day, the last ferry or 'Launch' as local people call it was 'docking in' with a small collection of Autumn walkers. A rowing boat, out for hire, came in with a family well wrapped up against the cold wind and two dogs looking like they were ready to dive in to the cold water any moment. But best of all is the warm light that glows behind Catbells and brings to life Newlands valley, while the rest of the fells are all in shadow.
Nice reflections on the Canadian Geese.
