First snow this season.

Had a drive down to the banks of Ullswater yesterday, and was surprised to see Snow on the very tops.

 So you can imagine how excited I was to see Catbells covered in fresh snow this morning, I don't think it will last long, but it does seem quite early.

Driving down to Grasmere this morning caught this bleak scene on Dunmail Raise. Picked up some Fisher 400 paper from Heaton Cooper Studio and then spent a lovely cosy afternoon painting but looking out onto the snow covered fells. It was raining, hailing so not outdoor painting weather!!
Thirlmere with snow on the back fells, but the trees are still holding onto their golden leaves.

Lakes and mountains holidays have always been my favourite.I don't have enough time for my holidays, but these pictures might make me drive to the lake over the weekend. I need to get away from this city madness ....!
