Those are pretty stunning shots John -Hartside and Alston area is one that a lot of people have never seen -and they are missing its wild beauty.
Its pretty awesome in the middle of a hard Winter too.

Some views of South Lakeland,around Lake Windermere in particular,all were taken during the Summer of this year.

The first four are views of the river & wear to the rear of the Lakeland Motor Museum,incidently this was the venue for the Clubs National Meet in September.









The next four are shots around the Lake itself;

A view of the Lake looking North from Lakeside Station.


A view looking South,with Lakeside Station on the right.


The 'SWAN' coming alongside Lakeside Station.


Lastly,a view on the Railway side of Lakeside Station,looking South along the platform of the 'LAKESIDE & HAVERTHWAITE RAILWAY'.


BEST REGARDS.

JOHN.

Superb as usual John - I do like Windermere and Bowness - the problem is so do thousands of other people on a nice day
I don't know whether they still offer it, but you used to be able to get a sort of 'roamer' ticket on the pleasure boats - go anywhere you want for the day, get off, get back on, do what you want. We spent, with friends, virtually a full Saturday - down to Lakeside and a trip on the railway - back up to Ambleside and get off for a visit to the garden centre - loads of food and drink to buy on the boat - a really relaxing day

I'm running out of photos to compete now - I'll have to get out and take some more - how do you fancy a few shots of a half-built offshore wind farm in the Tees Bay

Not sure about the ticket situation regarding all day travel Rod,I know they do a joint ticket in the motor museum,which covers entry to the museum,return travel on the railway & lake steamers,I would presume they do it vise-versa,meaning you should be able to travel on the steamer first,as they have a shuttle bus to the museum from Haverthwaite station,should your car be parked at Ambleside or Bowness.

Yeh! post away Rod,I like pics on any subject really,I'm just rekindling my love of photography,now I'm retired officially,can't wait for some better weather now,then hopefully we can compete lol,mind you I'm no expert in any shape or form,so you have no great competition in me I'm afraid,Keep up the good work Rod,always look forward to you posting.

Best Regards.

John.
