Buttermere. Cumbria U.K.

I love this B&W, Frank! And a B&W dog in it, to boot! Beautiful view!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Elizabeth, yes, the dog was a bonus !

What a beautiful place, breeze of no...
Frank L Croston.: It certainly is Ray, a favourite valley.

Hard to believe you could be that high with no wind, Frank
Frank L Croston.: Isn't it just Elisabeth... Never happened before or since, unfortunately, not a big fan of wind . Perhaps as well I'm not in the U.K. at the moment !
In that case, Frank, it makes sense you made this B&W.
Frank L Croston.: Well sometimes it seems to suit the subject Ginnie.

I can imagine that was a strange experience, knowing that most of the times you are being "blown out of your underwear" (Dutch saying)....
Great that you did this walk with your daughter! What a fabulous view. Love the B&W here, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: It was strange Astrid, I like your Dutch expression smile We only did a couple of walks together, she wasn't a big fan of walking in the Lakes ( round shops being her preference smile ) but she did really well, I was proud of her. Thank you.

I can't imagine the place without wind. The dog is perfectly positioned
Frank L Croston.: It was quite remarkable Chris, after being battered for years I enjoyed it. Got lucky with the dog.

One of Wainwright's favourite spots; his ashes are nearby in one the small tarns. A wonderful view from here.
Frank L Croston.: His favourite I believe Alan, He said to be careful after he's gone, if you get some grit in your eye, it might be him! A wonderful place.
Lieu protégé sans doute ..magnifique photo encore !
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Claudine.
I can hear the silence Frank
Frank L Croston.: My Daughter was most put out Bill , she found it most strange.

One thing I really like about Cumbria, old Westmoreland in particular Frank, is the names of places. They are quite a joy.
Frank L Croston.: Me too Andrew, there are some beauties.

Indeed curious that one can be so high, with no breeze. Excellent picture with that doggie making sure that you stay away from his sheep.
Frank L Croston.: Never known it before or since Louis...The Dog was on a day off, just enjoying his walk.

the dog is perfectly placed
Frank L Croston.: I got lucky there Paul.
Another terrific picture Frank, love the dog which gives it scale. I think I've walked along that edge on the other side of the lake, I've certainly walked and photographed among those trees on the lakeside.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Brian. The trees at the end of the lake aren't accessible now, fenced off unfortunately.
i'm glad that you came closer to show me the lake Frank... the Border Collie crowns the the the scene....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: He does make it Peter. I'll show you a close up of the lake soon.
Love how the dog really stands out, among the landscape smile
Frank L Croston.: I was pleased he stood long enough for me to get him in the pic'. Thanks Martin.
Up Haystacks, down through Scarth Gap. My dog's dragged up and down that route. Doubt either of us could manage it now!
Frank L Croston.: I feel the same way Graeme ! On this occasion we misjudged the time taken and had to descend in the dark, ok for me but I felt bad about my Daughter who had only done one climb before. She did good though smile
