While looking across the the Great Slab.


And in answer to henry's question .......... quite possibly  O0


Or ...... ?





Not sure how to rotate it back to vertical (which is how it was photographed and how it appears on my laptop   :-[
I took this Sunday 30th September, while walking from NDG to Pike O'Blisco - across to Crinkle Crags and down The Band & back.

Only a hill but all of life to me,
Up there, between the sunset and the sea.  Geoffrey Winthrop Young.

Only been up there once, and that was decades ago! Glad that my memory hasn't let me down. :)


Just open your photo on your PC with any photo editing software, or even Paint; they all have simple 90 degree rotate functions.

It's a beautiful view; but I'd hesitate to say it's the best, as I think it is subjective to people about what they consider to be the best view. My own favourite is from the top of Walla Crag, looking down on Derwentwater and away over to Bassenthwaite...and if I ever learn how to load a pic on her, I'll put it on. It'd  be nice to see what views hold a special place in others hearts.

As someone about to make their first visit, I'd be interested to know what your favourite is Percy.

Glorious photo Henry. Nice to see something along one of our planned walks for the weekend. Especially when it looks so spectacular!

It is a cracking view but i'm with Dave_P on this one............. needs more lakes.
My personal fave is looking west from the top of Grey Knotts / Brandreth, looking down both Ennerdale and Buttermere, out to the Irish sea. If it existed, its what heaven would look like :)

Where to start? I could list dozens but looking at the list on your other thread Iíll mention one:


The view of the Langdale Pikes from Blea Tarn is much finer. Itís on a thousand calendars for a reason.


And then contradicting myself and going on a bit:


I particularly like the Scafell Massif as viewed from the western side of Wastwater. Buckbarrow, Middle Fell, Yewbarrow, any of them will do.


Mosedale from Dore Head.


Great Gable along Wastwater.


Buttermere and Crummock Water from anywhere between Red Pike and Haystacks.


Buttermere from Fleetwith Pike and vice versa.


It may be a tiddler but the view from Dodd is amazing.


Looking north from Brock Crags


Along Ullswater from Arnison Crag.


Iíll stop there!

Percy, that's a mega response, thanks very much!


Fills me with anticipation for Blae Tarn, might aim for sunset or sunrise there then. And most of the rest (the ones I didn't have already) have been added to my hitlist.


Appreciated.
