If you know the Lake District, you will know there are a few amazing passes to drive:
Whilst these passes are spectacular, you might not realise the best view is often above you.
The image here is looking down onto Honister Pass from the summit of Dale Head (753m). It doesn’t sound much but it can be a bit of a slog when you have walked around the other hills in the Newlands Horseshoe. You can see the road and the river running in parallel along the valley and in the distance is Buttermere.
Despite having walked the rout several times, this is one of the best views I have experienced. In the past it’s often been foggy or raining hard with poor visibility.
Initially I thought this would be a colour shot but then I tried the black and white conversion and thought, that’s the one. In case you’re interested, here is the colour version.
Have a great weekend.
PS My Lenscraft July newsletter is out tomorrow.

Lovely shot Robin
Thanks Dave. I really like this one and it looks great printed.
Good idea to convert it; I think that the B&W version brings out the textures on the land better.
Thanks. It was the textures and shadows that drew my eye. The colour whilst nice just seems to confuse the image.
England’s green and pleasant land.. and you’ve nailed it with this one. I also prefer the BW but seriously, either pleases me. Just beautiful.
Thank you very much.
