The Lakes , Dec 2016

A weekend trip to the Lakes , the weather is looking great with frost and  blue skies .  we are meeting up with friends of mine up there on sunday morning.

We have just enough time for a quick walk along the river Brathey near Elterwater before meeting up later at Tarn Hows for a walk.

                                                           The conditions are superb!

                                        Magnificent view of the Langdales in the distance.

                                                                   Frosty fields and sun .

 Time to leave now and meet up with Gina, Dave, Tanya, Paul  and a couple of their freinds at the well known beauty spot that is Tarn Hows.

                                     Jan brought a picnic with Prosecco and cakes

                                                                 The Tarn Hows Pines

After leaving Tarn Hows we all went down to Coniston Water to the cafe , and then a walk around the shore for the sunset.

                 A long exposure image with the Lee Big Stopper to smooth out the water.

        The following morning we are up at Honister slate mine , and going for a walk up in the fells.

                                   Terrible Twosome not looking impressed with the view   haha

                                                              Thats a great view though .

                                                  The end of a great weekend in the Lakes
