A somewhat classic view of the Langdale Pikes seen from Blea Tarn. Usually, a great spot, much depends on the British weather plus depending on your view it's nice to have the reflection on the tarn.

I'd just finished working in Great Langdale itself as the shadow began to fill that valley, for those that don't know the area the narrow road climbs steeply out of Great Langdale, appearing just to the right of the cap 'A' then winds it's way to the right around the tarn. Stunning views can be had from the top of the climb, but as can be seen the shadow was fast climbing the Pikes but thankfully I'd enough time to gather more than I needed. A perfect end, on a still be cold day.
