Mid-Christmas/New Year walk with Chris.

Clear frosty morning, parked ar Waterend (near end of Loweswater) by a telephone box. Forgot camera so photos are from Chris's phone.

Nice little walk with good views to nearby fells and alon Crummock water, also to west coast, Scotland and small glimpse of Isle of Man.

A good little ridge with great views. In Wainwrght's The Western Fells, he wrote on Low Fell, page 3, "Don't forget the camera." But he wouldn't have had a companion with a smart phone, of course.
