Rannerdale Bluebells May 16 th 2016

It is time to drive up to  Cumbria to see the famous  Bluebells which grow on the fellside below Rannerdale Knot.
The weather forecast is mixed with some sunny spells, so not too bad.
Arriving at the small car parking area at  Rannerdale , i leave the Terrible Twosome in the car while i photograph the bluebells.  its not warm so they will be ok for half an hour.

                                  Through the gate..............................

                                                Sun lighting up streaks in the bluebells.

      Walking along the main path towards the stream , bluebells on either side looking good .

                                                        5 frame vertical panorama.

I have crossed over the bridge and walking along the far side  where the main area is on the steep sloping fellside.

                                 Glorious view towards Mellbrake over Crummock water.

Looking back up the valley

I have collected the Terrible Twosome and we are going to walk up the valley and up to the summit of Rannerdale Knotts.

                                        Getting higher now with great views.

                                                               Up on the tops now

                                           Buttermere in the distance now behind Mollster.

                                           Chester poses for a moment , a rare ocurance :)

                              Fleetwith Pike, Haystacks  and Buttermere in the valley below.

                                                            Time to head back down now.

Back down to the bluebells, and some nice light to do a couple of long exposure images with the Lee Big stopper ( 10 stop nd filter)

                                                        this is my favorite , 70 seconds f 14

                                                 The end of a great morning in the lakes
