A view of the Langdale Pikes in the Lake District National Park ,Cumbria, NW England from Blea Tarn. Taken on the 2nd July 2009. This put me in mind of the “Mirrormere”, the lake reached by the Fellowship (Tolkien’s Fellowship of the Ring) after they’d escaped from Moria..I know the mountains were bigger but I have a vivid imagination.

    stunning mate bet it is different up there today

  • Not arf….You can’t get up there. I popped down to Skelwith and the flat footpaths are all ice.Saw all sorts of people falling over. I just went in the meadow by the Brathay. Took me ages to cross the field, it was like an ice rink.

  • Thanks Gary, I rather fell in love with it. This was the first of many great reflective days in 2009, Buttermere and Brotherswater being others worthy of a mention.
