2b. Easedale Tarn to Grasmere Walk in Cumbria
The English Lake District - Cumbria
Walking below the hills around Easedale Tarn.
Beauty personified, even on a 'mixed weather' day!
Lots of golden coloured bracken - looks great now in winter, but awful in the summer.
The pictures can speak for themselves.

Goodbye Grasmere and thanks kids for the primary school art display by the 'car-park' aka school playground. The art is clearly influenced by the surroundings, and, is this painting to the point of abstraction? as is the work of the northern artist Peter Hicks?
