|The classic 'U-shaped' glaciated valley of High Cup Nick with the Whin Sill intrusions.|
|Good views - including Ingleborough, on the way up - lots of lambs, larch flowers |
and a tired Rocky in the pub at Dufton afterwards.

On rather a 'fresh' night a few hardy souls gathered to see the lighting of the beacon. The views were stunning, the Lakeland fells providing an ideal backdrop. ....and the sunset wasn't bad either!
|The Beacon with Skiddaw behind and a view over the Solway.|

A cracking walk up Pen-y-ghent. Parked just outside Horton and then followed the Pennine way up to the top ...via the crags to photograph purple saxifrage - which was perfect today! Returned from the top down to Brackenbottom - certainly the way round to do it if you are doing this circular route.

Royal Scot was built in 1927 for the London, Midland and Scottish Railway for their passenger service from London to Glasgow and was chosen by Britain to appear in Chicago at the 1933 'Century of Progress' exhibition. She was rebuilt in 1950 and served for another 12 years on the West Coast main line before retiring in 1962. After that, she was purchased by Billy Butlin and became a star at Skegness Butlins! In 2015 she returned to the Severn Valley Railway (Royal Scot Locomotive and General Trust) and began to, once again, carry passengers in February of this year. What a treat to see her coming full- steam through North Cumbria!

Finally, finished these three prints based on the cliffs at Cligga Head, North Cornwall. There was a lot of tracing leant on the window to help with registration between the two techniques. The monoprint is water-based ink, the lino oil-based and then hand colouring was watercolour. They look nicer in reality than in the photo as they were photographed in a dull light.

Over the week, when we were in Cornwall, Tom left the trail camera in the garden so that it was secure - among a lot of wood mice and dunnock there were a fair few cats from the surrounding houses!
