Wasdale Head Lake District

Wasdale Head, Lake District: After I spent an hour blowing out my arse to get to this spot, the last thing I wanted to do was take a photograph. What I wanted to do was sit with my back to the giant rock, sheltering from the biting wind. Yet I’m a photographer, I didn’t lug my gear up this hill for it to say in my pack. This photograph was taken from near the summit of Illgill Head, looking down the valley towards the hamlet of Wasdale Head. Wasdale Head, Lake District is home to England’s highest mountain (Scafell Pike) and England’s deepest lake (Wastwater; part of which you can see just at the foot of the photograph). Illgill Head is better known as the northern section of the Wastwater Screes, while the Fell reaches 609 metres and offers great views of some of England’s most iconic hills. Kirk Fell, Great Gable, Scafell Pike and Red Pike are all visible from Illgill Head. This photograph was taken using an Olympus EM-5.
