Winter is coming... Honister Pass by @mjowenhughes

With some of the recent weather perhaps itโ€™s a good time to point out it can be a bit rainy in the Lakes! Love this creative edit of Honister Pass. For a similar experience to this, try driving up it in the winter ๐Ÿ˜ณ To be featured, follow and tag us! ๐Ÿ•

Aira Force in full flow this morning! Video by @thequietsite

Legend has it many centuries ago stood a castle close to Aira Force. The Lord of the Castle had a daughter named Emma who was engaged to a Knight named Sir Eglamore. The knight was a famous warrior engaged in the Eastern war far, far way. On the day of his return she had fallen asleep beside the falls waiting for her true love. But when he woke her, she was so startled she fell into the deep ravine and drowned. Distraught, Sir Eglamore lived out the rest of life in a nearby cave as a hermit, unable to forgive himself.  This story inspired William Wordworths poem The Somnambulist. To be featured, follow and tag us! ๐Ÿ•

Dawn at Wastwater by @jamesappletonphotography

What a truly beautiful shot! This has to be one of my absolute favourite places in the English Lake District. The imposing scree slopes extend out beneath the lake (Englandโ€™s deepest), which was itself formed by glacial erosion during the Ice Ages that ended about 10,000 years ago. The rocks here are volcanic โ€“ ancient lavas and ash-flows that erupted almost 500 million years ago. To be featured, follow and tag us! ๐Ÿ•
