A bunch of Herdies in the Langdales

I'm sorry, but I cannot start this post without making a tribute to these Herdwick sheep, who all posed so beautifully for me!

These Herdy sheep or "Guardians of the Fells" are absolutely iconic to the Lake District sheep and I hear that local farmers are given grants if they farm them on their land!

On days like today, I try to capture the details of the mountains and the small things I see.

While the sweeping vistas are incredibly dramatic, it's equally the changing of the scenery with cloud, or different light... or details I can capture with my camera, such as the lines of the hills, shaped by ancient rivers.

Today continued our Wainwrights, with 7 in the day done: Loft Crag, Pike of Stickle, Harrison Stickle, Pavey Ark, Thunacar Knott, High Raise and finally Blea Rigg.

Nothing wrong with a good iPhone photo on a day like today!
