Foxglove in the evening sunshine.
Beautiful clear skies towards Blencathra (Behind the tree!)
We followed the path behind the seat just near St Johns in the Vale church.
Looking down to the seat with Low Rigg behind, and Skiddaw and Lonscale Fell behind that.
Castlerigg Fell and Dodd Crag.
Dodd behind Latrigg, the sun was starting to get fairly low by this point, should get some good photos in about an hour.
The steep north face of Clough Head.
And the summit of High Rigg, looking south to Thirlmere.
And looking to Threlkeld Knotts and Clough Head.
Good view from inside the tent? I think so!
Enjoying the views from High Rigg summit.
The beautiful sunset.
Near enough the same photo as earlier but with the sun setting in the distance.
