Brief spell of sunshine and one of the many rainbows seen today.

Silver How summit cairn.

Small unnamed tarn near Brigstone Moss... How about... Brigstone Tarn?
Doesn't a bit of sunshine make all the difference!
Simply stunning.
A mini summit with a mighty view. Thats Crinkle Crags and Bowfell on the skyline.
The Langdale Pikes.
Bowfell.
Sunshine and blue skies over the Coniston Fells.
The Vale of Grasmere with Fairfield in the centre.
The view to Windermere with Loughrigg Fell to the left.
Elterwater... or for those who have been here a while, Eltermere.

A stunning view of Grasmere from Loughrigg Terrace. Those clouds look a bit dark and they are heading this way...

Here comes the rain. By the time I got to the waters edge it was tipping it down!
