A Year Outside (Pt 1)

I was going to call this "Another year in the Lake District" but some of the photos are from other lovely places so here goes, it's been a busy year!  Honestly, who needs to travel the world when all of this is right on the doorstep?


Snowy hikes and a stunning inversion from Red Screes.
