This is a shot I took while climbing Bowfell Pike. The peak lies at 906 meters, above the snow line that day.

It was my first time climbing in The Lake District. The peaks are not Himalayan in scale but rival them in beauty. 

I loved the climb up the gully, carved from the dark rock by Stickle Ghyll. I huffed my way to a clear tarn at the top, past small waterfalls and pools. 

It was a hot day and I felt like taking a dip. I might have too, but for the families and groups of older people wondering past.

I’ll have to go back again soon for a swim.
