  1. There are some brilliant shots here that do the county justice in showing it to be not just a summer visit or a trip round a lake.

  2. Thanks! We both have a real passion for the place and there is SO much more to it than many people ever see. We're on a mission to spread the word!

  3. Fabulous photos!! Thanks for showing them

  4. Thanks Jean. We're so lucky to live here and love sharing with everyone how wonderful the scenery is. Have a great day!

  5. Beautiful pictures. I am so lucky to be living back in Cumbria after spending years in the concrete wilderness of the East Midlands.

  6. Thanks Sarah. My husband takes many of the pics. Cumbria is such a breath of fresh air in every single sense of the word.
