Lake District day 3

Four seasons in one day! We climbed three of the Langdale Pikes – Harrison Stickle, Loft Crag, and Pike of Stickle. We’d intended to go on to Pavey Ark but were driven back by a blizzard. Here’s a storm cloud over the Langdale Valley.

Today we climbed Lingmoor Fell from Little Langdale. It’s a good path all the way with fine views, the best being at the top with spectacular views towards the Langdale Pikes.

In the first image we can see, from left to right, Pike of Stickle, Harrison Stickle, and Pavey Ark.

Storm clouds gathering over the eastern Lake District.

I rather like clouds. Not the grey stratus slabs that so often seem to blanket this country. but the graceful forms that are carved and sculpted by the winds that are themselves contoured and guided by the landforms beneath, and driven ultimately by the sun’s energy.

Clouds like this one, looking west from Loughrigg.
