Storm in the Lake District

Storm in the Lake District: Late on Wednesday afternoon, crisscrossing one of the Fells which make up the Lake District, we pulled over the car as a storm whipped its way over the hills in the distance. We were trying to find our way to Wasdale Head in the western reaches of the National Park, an area which is less visited than the tourist meccas of Windermere and Ambleside. We passed thousands of grazing sheep as we trundled uphill; for the passes are steep in the Lake District, gradients of 15-25% seemed to be the norm in this part of the country. We weren’t lost as such, we were heading in the general direction of Wasdale Head, but we also weren’t sure exactly where we were either. There was no phone service out here so we haphazardly guessed at each junction which direction we should turn. Getting lost is part of the adventure. This photograph was taken using an Olympus EM-5.
