First walk of the year

We had a walk on new ground this week, it was our first walk of the year.

Great Sca Fell is not to be confused with it’s more well known namesake, it’s a genteel  fell in the Uldale range, standing at 651 m.  The walk was 6 miles in total and as my back has been acting up it was a nice easy start to the year having spent the past couple of weeks as a couch potato.

The paths are pretty good most of the way.


Lots of lovely shots for painting inspiration along the way.


I love how the low sun and long shadows emphasise the topography at this time of year.



Almost there.


There were some lovely views towards Skiddaw.


You could just make out Scotland in the distance.
