The lovely St James' Church at Buttermere.
Height is gained quickly on this walk and the views open up towards Crummock Water and Mellbreak.
The blinding sun behind High Crag.
The Newlands Pass road and the towering North Western Fells.
A view over Rannerdale Knotts to a section of Crummock Water, Loweswater, Mellbreak and Low Fell.
And a wide shot of the same scene.
Would you think this is November with all these people? I think it was an organised group because they all stopped for a rest up there (time to pick up the pace and hopefully get the summit to myself).
An empty summit of Robinson. Shame there were no views but after about 100m of descent the views were superb.
Like this atmospheric cloudy shot of Fleetwith Pike, Haystacks and Kirk Fell.
Great Gable coming out of the cloud, Kirk Fell to the right.
The view down to Buttermere and Goat Crag on the descent down to the lakeshore.

Entering the tunnel along Buttermere Lakeshore. This is actually the first time I've been through it!
