It’s Sunday so it must be visit the Lake District day!
Today I’ve included a video of how powerful (and noisy) Aira Force Waterfall is and a video of the sunset over Ullswater & Glenriding a few years ago.
An 18th-century pleasure ground, Aira Force was the backdrop for William Wordsworth’s poem ‘Somnambulist’ – a Gothic tale of love and tragedy. There are so many woodland trails to discover in this landscape of contrasts. Quiet glades give way to dramatic waterfalls, with Aira Beck thundering down a 65-foot drop past ferns and rocks.
List, ye who pass by Lyulph’s Tower At eve; how softly then Doth Aira-force, that torrent hoarse, Speak from the woody glen! Fit music for a solemn vale! And holier seems the ground To him who catches on the gale The spirit of a mournful tale, Embodied in the sound…
Non stop rain all day, you can tell it’s approaching the Summer holidays! Everything is sodden, so not in the mood for taking any images today. Hopefully the sun will be out for the rest of the week to dry it all up.
The following images are from last year’s trip to the Lake District in Cumbria. One of my favourite places to visit, so hopefully I’ll get to visit this year for a few days.
