I different kind of Lakeland walk this Sunday. Spent most of the morning round Rydal water taking pictures, then up to Loughrigg down to Grasmere then up Silver How. Was a great day out wonderfull weather and as you will see from the pictures Rydal was perfect.

Two beautiful fells, Chris. you've got some really good pictures there. I was on Loughrigg Fell myself on Monday. That view of Grasmere from the path heading north-west down from Loughrigg - it has to be one of the best views on the planet.
