The Hidden Lake – Wast water

Well it was ‘Hidden’ until we found it, by accident…. actually we got lost, missed a turn and went a few miles off course, when wow… this lake, we had been resigned to not finding suddenly appeared, and what an appearance, beautiful and pristine.

After viewing the lake in surprise, we stopped and took a few images in appreciation as noted by Maggie on the rock.  We  then moved on to get back on the road to Hardknott Pass and Wrynose Pass, as we get back to the road we wanted, guess what… the same great Bower Inn pub from the day before when we ha the wonderful Sunday Roast lamb dinner.  Had to have lunch before heading over the passes.  Wonderful local beef hamburger with all the trimmings!


Our faithful steed, the Renault Megane turbo diesel great car, exceptional mileage and loads of usable torque… cruised for hours on the motorway at 80 mph (128kph)

    Stunning scenery and shots! Looks like a perfect day too; just enough clouds to make the sky interesting 🙂

      It is all about the right time and place, and I am not one to sit for hours or days waiting for the perfect shot, if you do that you may miss the right time and place somewhere else.
