This photo was taken last winter. It was a beautiful, still day and driving around the lake I spotted these brave souls out for a paddle in what must have been near zero degree water. The reflection of the hills onto the lake and the sun emphasising the colours makes this photo pretty lovely in my opinion!
This weekend I decided it would be fun to take a stroll up Helvellyn. It’s the 3rd highest peak in England and a really fun walk to do via Striding edge.
The route up Striding Edge is a dramatic one. The views are beautiful. It gets very narrow at points, with long drops either side it’s so not one for those scared of heights! Bit of rock climbing needed in places to scramble down bits but a very fun walk to do in good weather.
The Lake District has long been a family favourite. It is truly stunning, one of the most picturesque places in the UK.
Even if your not a fan of fell walking, the valleys and lake side paths mean everyone can enjoy its beauty. My favourite time to go walking is winter. Walking along the tops trudging through knee deep snow with frozen eyebrows is fantastic.
Here are some of my favourite pictures taken from one Christmas we spent there.
