Some of my favourite Lake District photos

All of the following taken over a couple of splendid days during the Christmas break (2000). Bright frosty days in Winter seem to bring out the Lakeland colours in their true glory, especially with the strong contrast of snow on the high tops. Under such conditions it is indeed difficult to take a bad photo ! This sequence of 23 photos was taken in the Keswick area. The photos are of a fairly large image size and it may take a few minutes for the page to fully download
