The Autumnal Lake District

No particular rhyme or reason to these shots. They are simply the one's I liked best from this weekend's walking trip to the Lake District. (They are best appreciated at full-size, which you can view by clicking on them.)

Firstly, sun on the slopes of Helvellyn on Saturday morning.

Sheep may safely graze; a view near Thirlmere.

The slightly misty air bleaches the colours in the distance, but it's definitely an autumnal palette.

DSCF0308a
A view along the sunny valley floor towards the overcast hills in the distance.

DSCF0313a
During lunch we watched a group of climbers on a nearby crag. Here you see a couple of them after they achieved the summit.

I just thought it was a pretty view. Taken on the lower slopes of Helvellyn looking towards Thirlmere.

Another view from the base of Helvellyn, this time looking north(ish) towards Skiddaw.
