The Lake District and I
Back in June (remember, when it was really raining?) we went camping with a bunch of friends in Dodgson Wood, on the banks of Coniston Water.
This weekend, I finally made the time to go through the photographs and collect a few of them together.
I thought I’d share a handful with you here as I reminded myself that, on this trip, I became more enchanted by the Lakes (I’m one of those people who prefers Scotland).
For the first time in years, I took a stroll alone on the hills for a few hours where my senses were treated to some extraordinary scenes.
Some held beauty in their dankness (think Crow Crag of Withnail and I fame) whereas others were much more classical in their approach — especially when crepuscular rays bathed the landscape in warm, glowing pools of light…
To clarify the earlier Withnail and I reference, take a moment to sit back and enjoy this trailer I unearthed from YouTube…
Withnail & I. Best. Movie. Ever. I’ve created a “Wall-O-Withnail” in my computer room, featuring all the vintage items from the movie I have been able to identify, track down, and acquire. You can see my photos of the “WOW” here: http://www.mrssplapthing.blogspot.com (just put “Withnail” in the search bar)
