watercolours of ullswater and its environs

The scenery of the English Lake District isn’t the most spectacular in the world, it isn’t even the most spectacular in Great Britain, yet for many, it remains uniquely, intensely beautiful.

I was reminded of this a few weeks ago, when trawling through hundreds of old slides for scanning, I rediscovered a series of images dating back to a trip I made with my family, in 1973.

As I described in an earlier post, we were based on the shore of Lake Ullswater, and spent all of the days trekking in the surrounding fells.

The pictures here provide me with a vivid reminder of how and why the gorgeous lake-land scenery sparked a life-long yearning in my heart.
