Views from a bedroom window

or

why we moved to the Lakes...

Well, it used to be a bedroom but, having looked out of the window, we thought that was a bit of a waste - so now it's my study (don't ask how much work gets done...).

The high fell in the distance is Great End, at the near end of the range terminating in Scafell Pike. Castle Crag is the little fell in front of Great End. On the left is Falcon Crag, on the right High Spy. You can see just a glimpse of Derwentwater.

The flowers are from a clematis, growing out of the top of a 20ft tree! If you think that is unusual (and we did, having tried to grow clematis wthout any success in the sand of the Home Counties), you should look closely at the fir on the left: another clematis is flowering at a height of 50ft...

This really is a view from a bedroom. Castlehead in front of Causey Pike and Barrow.

A trans-Atlantic jet sensibly diverting to take a look at the Lakes...

This being a picture taken in 2005, you will see that we have taken down the large fir tree, and can therefore see Walla Crag from our bedrooms.

It's July, so Keswick is overflowing with visitors to the world famous Keswick Convention, and in the field on the left you see some of that overflow.

In January 2005 we had some fairly dramatic storms, and this sunset followed a day of howling wind and racing clouds. The whole sequence took about 15 minutes.
