Thanks Nick. I can't remember if it was my trusty old Zenit EM or the Olympus OM10, and the view hasn't changed, I know, because we were there during the summer.

A road oft trudged by booted feet,

with rucksacks bulging shoulder high

forging ahead to reach the site,

where tent would rise majestical, food be cooked then wash in brook,

Before the time-honoured routine of retiring to the Langdale Inn for a pint or twelve with mates not seen since last time here.

Must try the Langdale Inn some time. I only started discovering the hidden Lake District when I got my first motorbike (Suzuki GT125) in 1974. This was one of the first 1 in 4s I did on it.

Great shot skida, like the composition and cloudscape. Thanks for your kind comment, we had a week of incredibly good weather just after Christmas this year with settled high pressure, frost and sun, makes up for the previous two years!

Thanks Pete. This was taken during my "35mm Years". I wish it was scanned from the negative though.
