|I hugged the scar edge, it was looking grim up in the Lakes|
|As I approached the highest part of the cliff these Scots Pines caught my eye...|
|Looking back towards a hazy Arnside Knott things looked a lot brighter.|
|I turned to head back at the viewpoint, known as the "Mushroom" by local folk.|
|Leaving the "Mushroom" behind I walked along the top of the scar calling at the trig point, before crossing Helsington Barrows back to the car.|
I thought I'd take advantage of the better than forecast weather.....
|.....and made a detour to Leighton Moss RSPB reserve. The only slightly unusual birds being this pair of Grebes.|
|The weather was deteriorating...thunder and lightning approaching. I quickly took this photo before the heavens opened. Just a couple of miles to home from here, it had been an easy day. Enjoyable though.|
