An Autumn walk around the shores of Buttermere

With glorious sunshine and a dusting of snow on the tops, Buttermere was bathing in all it's glory on Saturday
I always enjoying walking around this beautiful lake, especially with the Autumn leaves just hanging on.
It's only about four miles and fairly flat all the way, with just one obstacle, a short dark tunnel, only about fifty metres long but I always have to run through it!!
Buttermere is one of my favourite lakes, with its changing moods, towering mountains and a timeless feel. It's quite a drive getting there either by Newlands, Whinlatter or Honister's dramatic passes but what scenery in a few short miles.

 Just some of the golden trees

 A truly classic shot of Fleetwith Pike and Buttermere, I fancy having a go at this in pastels.

Another rusty old fence/ post acting as a perfect lead in.
