24 Hours in the Lake District – From Snow to Sheeting Rain

Well having had snow on and off all last week we were treated to some real “amber” snow around Patterdale and Ullswater on Friday. Having fallen softly for the first part of the day in mid afternoon it really starting coming down big style and by early evening the roads were covered and the rest was very deep and crisp if a little uneven. On Saturday morning we were treated to a hint of blue sky which made for some scenic views. Needless to say this being the Lake District come Saturday evening it started raining and it hasn’t really stopped since.

Anyway here are some pictures taken during and after our the brief winter wonderland window of opportunity….

    Like the church yard shot photo. Suggest you put it to the church that they hire themselves as a location for horror films. Great photos.
