This is a shot taken in June 2009 & previously uploaded on my old account as “Buttermere Dubs” which is the name of the stream that flows from Buttermere to Crummock Water in the English Lake District in Cumbria, NW England. The lake and Fleetwith Pike are seen past the stream….
This was the start of a lot of days in the second half of 2009 that I spent by this charming lake and climbing the fells nearby.

    Lol, so we have. Now you mention it I have a shot there as well – Doooh!
    Its just that it was December when we went and no green on the trees and the lake wasn’t as high so it was a mass of pink rocks.

    LOL, what a plonker I am at times.

  • The pink rocks had been swept down in the floods, and Steve always goes there in bad weather….I’ll get you all a good day.
    As for the plonker…lol, you’ll be in good company.

    This was my introduction to your wonderful work Jamie…I was awestruck then and Buttermere Dubs (love the name!) remains one of my all-time favourites….You don’t need to be out there risking life and limb when you have these beauties to re-introduce us to.

    I remember that tree leaning over to catch a glimpse of himself in the water. Fine & serene then, finer & serener now.

  • Thank you S
