Claife Heights near Windermere in the Lake District National Park in Cumbria,NW England August 2009.
This is my secret place that I have photographed at different times of the year but this is my favourite shot of my favourite place on the heights…it seems Tolkienesque. Think Fangorn Forest in “The Two Towers” (at least that’s what inspired me here)
As a clue it can be found just off the white post route from Latterbarrow to Claife Station deep in the forest
Previously on RB on my old account it got a homepage feature on 14th Sept 2009

Stoppress. I visited again on 15th April 2010 and encountered this scene……… (see below)It seems this glade has been preserved for ever in my shot…
