Have you ever been asked what do you do with all your photos? As a mountaineer who loves to take photos, like many, I have thousands of photos stored and gathering dust, some are naff some are ok.
They cover a wide range of activities in fact anything that gives me an excuse to go walking, scrambling, mountaineering.
Hopefully there will still be something for everyone, if anyone wants to contribute feel free.
Remember each photo has its own story and this is my way of putting them to use.
a superb day out walking and scrambling in the Langdale Pikes, we
descended from Harrison Stickle I noticed Blea Tarn nestling in its
hanging comb and took a couple of shots. We returned to our digs
Blea Tarn had struck a cord in my mind se we had a quick meal and
decided to go up to Blea Tarn to take some sunset shots.
classic view of Blea Tarn is from close to the lakeside which is
where everyone takes the photo, they have even put a car park there
cos all the photographers cars clogged the narrow road. I was looking
for a different angle so we went for a walk up the slops of Mart
view from here is superb it drew my attention to the potential views
from neighbouring Side Pike so that was our next stop. By now dusk
was falling so after a short walk it was time for us to return to the
valley BUT we decided to return for sunrise.
saw us starting the walk up Side Pike the sunrise was dissapointing
so we concentrated of the sun striking the summits and crags on the
Langdale Pikes. We worked our way up to the summit finding several
decent shots then backtracked as the sun climbed into the sky.
at the hut for a breakfast at 08.00hrs a days rock climbing was on
the agenda for the rest of the day.
