1st walk of the new year was across to Knott rigg and Ard crags, was very cold in the morning and very still , I chose to go via Crummock water on the off chance the water would be still and hopefully get some great shots and I wasn't wrong
View across to Melbrek

from here we drove to Sale fell and Ling fell, and a short drive down to Bassentwaite, where the views across to Skiddaw were stunning
finally a detour to keswick as the views had to be better with the sun setting and we were right
just below Friars crag

all in all a fantastic day, with over 400 photos between 2 of us
this was the first time in the two years we have been bagging we have had clear shots like these

this is the view from the park right down to Castle Crag
Down Derwent water
Across to Skiddaw

Some lovely pics there - I keep wanting one like that across Bassenthwaite to Skiddaw but it's never calm when I'm passing!:-( I've got quite a few of Crummock Water, Loweswater and Buttermere looking beautiful, calm and glassy though so it must be a feature of that valley (my favourite Lakeland valley scenery-wise anyway). Mine are in summer though which is unusual - it seems much easier to get the still, clear days in winter.

If I remember when I get home, I'll paste some of mine in that are similar (at work right now).
