The Knott and Angle Tarn
Another photo frenzy day.
Starting at Hayeswater
and on to The Knott
I hadn’t been there for some time.
The Knott and Hayeswaer
There is no other reason to go to the top of The Knot bar the view.
A glance over the hills to the east and Bannerdale,
the first hint that you not in a mountain range of continental proportion.
There was a vague thought to perhaps go up Rest Dodd, but then – I changed my mind. Instead wandering down to find Angle Tarn. Water and sunshine. A good camera combination.
Before Angle Tarn the tiny tarns above Satura crags splashed over the hills, intercepted by cleverly placed rocks. A well designed landscape.
Keeping high, away from the usual path, my Fuji X-T1 just about ‘squoze’ Angle Tarn within my current favourite lens, XF14
Angle Tarn Pikes
Taking the back way Angle Tarn Pikes sliced the hill like fins.
And then down.
Ullswater and Brothers water filling each end of the western corridor. Recent rain and warmth coloured their surrounds vivid green. Higher slopes still bearing winter orange and brown.
There is always a different way to find up the fells. Another reason to go north.
