Autumn in The Lakes.

This is just a series of photos I took the last time I was in the Lakes. They were taken at Thirlmere, then later in the same day in the Ambleside/Langdale area and finally at Coniston Water. Autumn has really taken hold in the last few weeks and some of the colours were superb. Also, by chance, I found a new viewing point for the Langdale hills. It's a hamlet called Skelwith Fold and it can be reached either by car or on foot from Clappersgate. I chose to walk and was well rewarded by the little effort it took.

I had originally intended to visit Tarn Hows but there was just nowhere to park. The car park was jammed packed as was all the off road parking. The Lake District is just so popular these days, no matter what the day or weather. So I headed down to Coniston with my tail between my legs and took my last photos from the Monk Coniston car park.

I have also added a few photos from the recently reopened Lingholme Gardens and Derwentwater.

Again, I don't really think many words are needed for this blog. The photos tell the whole story of one of the best drives in the UK. ...
