Never ceases to amaze me!

I have just got back from a few days away with my wife Jude to celebrate our anniversary in the Lake District. This is a place called Wastwater and is virtually untouched, all there is is a road leading to it that ends at a pub, you have to turn around and go back the way you came. To get here you travel through dense woodland and forest and as you come into the opening this is what greats you. A place you could simply sit and stare at for hours, I watched an artist at work high on an outcrop, lost in the world around him, the few that venture here simply stand in awe for a while before they remember they came to photograph.

They joy I have is that the whole area is managed by the National Trust and they will not allow any development anywhere, the pub has been here for years but there will be no tourist attractions such as cafes etc, you come here to simply see what there is.

I always wanted go back here once I had gathered some more kit and know how.

"Were the whole realm of nature mine, it were an offering far too small." That's whagt I think when I see the picture and title. Very good work. :)
