Walking back along Derwentwater

This is the fourth and final post in my series about a day in October.  I posted my photos taken on the way to Keswick in the first post.

The light changes through any day.  The sun shines from a different direction and clouds move into or out of the area.  In this case more clouds appeared as the day went on.  Walking in a different direction means that different views are more prominent.  I did turn round to take some of the photos I am posting here.

The view from Friar’s Crag (and other places along Derwentwater) is usually described as looking into the Jaws of Borrowdale.  Borrowdale is a valley among some fells, which are challenging for walkers.

My camera on my phone must have some clever software.  For certain shots it displays the word Backlight.  The sort of cameras I have used in the past did not take good photos looking towards the sun!

There are many kinds of habitat – Fresh water, running water, marshland, meadows, fells (Lake District hills/mountains), woodland and stony shorelines.

On our way back to the car park through the woods, acorns were dropping out of the trees around us.

A walk along Derwentwater to Keswick

On a beautiful autumn day we parked in a National Trust car park and walked to Keswick along footpaths, which mainly go along the side of Derwentwater.  This is the first of a series of posts with my photos from that day.

Apart from the light being wonderful for photography, there was a very large flock of geese, which took off and flew away in batches.  As my phone has a delayed shutter setting, which I have not tried to change, I missed most of the geese!

It was the half term holiday for most of the country.  The popular view point and beauty spot, Friar’s Crag was very busy.  I didn’t bother to take its photo.   There seems to be an unwritten rule that people greet each other farther away from Keswick than Friar’s Crag.  It is usually so busy between Keswick and Friar’s Crag that people behave as if they were already/still in the town.
