Water in the gorge of the River Greta, Cumbria

Water in the gorge of the River Greta, Cumbria

Visual exploration of the water in the gorge of the River Greta after some rain in the past 48 hours on the fells upstream. There’s plenty of water flowing but the river isn’t roaring and “angry” - the river level is within the “normal” range.

Low Wood Bay, Windermere - Lake District National Park

A sunny interval while I was passing by Windermere in the Lake District. View towards Loughrigg Fell and Langdale Fell in the distance.
Hiking the fantastic fells in Cumbria gives so many stunning views and it’s great to get up there but here’s a reminder that this area’s about the lakes too. The clue’s in the name... Lake District National Park.

Sunset at Barrow in Furness, Cumbria

Spectacular sunset and the dockyard where they build Britain’s nuclear-powered submarines in Barrow in Furness, Cumbria.

I find there’s something disquieting about the juxtaposition in this view, even before you know the huge concrete buildings are the silos where they build the nuclear-powered submarines.

Canon on Seaford’s Martello Tower

Canon (32 pounder) mounted horizontally on the roof of Seaford’s Martello Tower on the English Channel coast in Sussex; the barrel is currently a landing place for birds but the tower and canon were intended to defend against a beach landing or attack. Wise defence and the canon was never fired in action. The tower was one of 103, all built in the first half of the nineteen century to deter a French invasion during the Napoleonic wars.
Seaford Head (69 m.) is one of the Seven Sisters, a series of chalk cliffs along the Sussex Coast.
