This time of year really does give me cabin fever. What ever the weather I always like to get outdoors. I firmly believe this was due to my upbringing. . My Dad was a farm labourer, myself and my brother would spend many a day out on the farm with him. My Grandad in his retirement we spent and again as young children we spent a lot of time outdoors walking the fields and woodland of Cheshire with him also, along with holidays my parents took us on. Either in the Lakes or in Wales. I have nothing but fond memories from my childhood. . I think this is also started to rub off on @akinsley92 having a long distance relationship is hard, but working with each other and standing by each other and investing time in each other's interest is what makes for a very healthy relationship. I know she'd follow me to the end of the earth if she had to and this is why i'm so thankful to have her in my life. . Here's Amanda looking over Torver Common, sitting just above Kelly Hall Tarn with views over to the Coniston range just tucked underneath the cloud. . Just 3 more days till we head to Skye. The excitement is real! Who's had a good weekend!?

Hardened is the Herdwick. . The herdwick sheep is native to the Lake District, the name is delivered from old Norse "herdvyck" meaning sheep pasture. They are renowned for their robust health, their ability to live solely on forage and also their tendency to be territorial and not stray too far over the adverse terrain of the fells of the Lake District. Thanks for that one wiki! They also make for some great content. . This was taken just above Kelly Hall Tarn looking over towards Coniston Old Man. . Give me you best animal relates puns and jokes for this one! . Four days and counting till I head to Skye with my other half. Excited is an understatement! . . . . #lakedistrict #fromlakelandwithlove #ukpotd #moodygrams #britainstalent #folkscenery #livefolk #rsa_folknature #scenicbritain #everything_imaginable #folkgood #agameoftones #thelakelanders #properadventure #photosofbritain #exploremore #folkvibe #lakedistrictnationalpark #neverstopexploring #createyourtrail #gooutside #lakedistrictphotography #lakedistrictphotographer #illgrammers #letsgosomewhere #stayoutside #lovegreatbritain

Beyond the stile. . I had a couple of people ask me what the view was like over the other of the stile that you saw me on in the image I posted the other day and here's a part of it. . Looking over to the Langdales we can se the Langdale Pikes and Lingmoor fell below it. In the far distance you can see the Scafell range, here's @octobercafe checking to see how thick the ice was on this teeny tiny tarn. . So I'm gonna be filming my first vlog on Friday. Set myself a goal to start doing it this year and I'm gonna make sure I achieve it! . . . . #lakedistrict #fromlakelandwithlove #ukpotd #moodygrams #britainstalent #folkscenery #livefolk #rsa_folknature #scenicbritain #everything_imaginable #folkgood #agameoftones #thelakelanders #properadventure #photosofbritain #exploremore #folkvibe #lakedistrictnationalpark #neverstopexploring #createyourtrail #gooutside #lakedistrictphotography #lakedistrictphotographer #illgrammers #letsgosomewhere #stayoutside #lovegreatbritain

This stile leads to one of the best view points in the entire National Park, just off Black Crag. The 360 degree views look over to Fairfield, Windermere, Coniston old man and the Langdales. If you haven't been up here I strongly suggest you do! . I'm heading to the Isle of Skye with @akinsley92 in a couple of weeks and I honestly can't wait. Im probably not going to have much to post either between now and then but I'll still be here! . Hope you've all had a great weekend. . . . . #lakedistrict #fromlakelandwithlove #ukpotd #moodygrams #britainstalent #folkscenery #livefolk #rsa_folknature #scenicbritain #everything_imaginable #folkgood #agameoftones #thelakelanders #properadventure #photosofbritain #exploremore #folkvibe #lakedistrictnationalpark #neverstopexploring #createyourtrail #gooutside #lakedistrictphotography #lakedistrictphotographer #illgrammers #letsgosomewhere #stayoutside #lovegreatbritain

You look like your lost? . I often stop and take a minute to really take in the landscape and my surroundings. . For the the most part this is quite rewarding. It also gives me chance to get my breath on the steep inclines 🥵 . Here we see two walkers they were stood here for some time enabling me to get my camera out and use them as content. I always like to create a scenario as to what's happening, maybe they were lost or like me they were taking in the view of the Coniston range and Coniston Water. . Hope you all have a great weekend. Unfortunately I'm working so no adventures for me! . . . . #lakedistrict #fromlakelandwithlove #ukpotd #moodygrams #britainstalent #folkscenery #livefolk #rsa_folknature #scenicbritain #everything_imaginable #folkgood #agameoftones #thelakelanders #properadventure #photosofbritain #exploremore #folkvibe #lakedistrictnationalpark #neverstopexploring #createyourtrail #gooutside #lakedistrictphotography #lakedistrictphotographer #illgrammers #letsgosomewhere #stayoutside #lovegreatbritain

First wander of 2019. . A few pals of mine have headed up here recently and I thought it was about time I had a look at the fell for myself. . Black fell is probably one of the most accessible fells and I'm going to say probably the best views for the very short walk to the summit which is only 323 meters, here we're looking over towards Fairfield. I'm gonna have to get myself up there at some point, gonna have wait till the longer days start to appear. Thanks to this cheeky sheep for some cheeky foreground content. . . . . #lakedistrict #fromlakelandwithlove #ukpotd #moodygrams #britainstalent #folkscenery #livefolk #rsa_folknature #scenicbritain #everything_imaginable #folkgood #agameoftones #thelakelanders #properadventure #photosofbritain #exploremore #folkvibe #lakedistrictnationalpark #neverstopexploring #createyourtrail #gooutside #lakedistrictphotography #lakedistrictphotographer #illgrammers #letsgosomewhere #stayoutside #lovegreatbritain

My final sunrise and image of 2018 . I've been looking at taking this very photograph from Todd Crag on Loughrigg Fell for some time. Now those that are familiar with this photo you'll know that a wooden stile used to stand in this spot, recently it was replaced with with slate one that now sits in the wall after the wooden one was found smashed to smithereens! . One last early morning jaunt out with @davemaccy and @danieltoalphoto made for one of my most unforgettable mornings of 2018 . Myself and Dave headed to Ambleside to meet Mr Toal, for those who ain't familiar with what it's like before 9am it's still well and truly pitch black here in the Lake District. . We headed up the winding path up loughrigg that leads in all directions with it being such a wide fell, you can head to Grasmere or the Langdales to begin with from the very point we started. . Cloud was forecast. Expecting nothing we mucked around, drinking tea and eating croissants whilst waiting for the sun to show its face, a front of real bad weather was coming from the west, yet still I was positive that we might just get a glimpse of a sunrise. . The clouds parted over Windermere and showed us these magnificent colours, virtually no wind and the rain predominantly held off made for one of my favourite sunrises of 2018. . This is my last post of 2018 so happy new year to you all. Have a great time no matter where you are. I'll be having a quiet one with my better half with having work on New Year's Day. For those who know me know I'm not exactly a party animal! . Just want to say thank you again to those that have continued to be supportive throughout the year and to those that i have shared the mountains and fells with! Thanks for being one to remember 2018! . . . . #lakedistrict #fromlakelandwithlove #ukpotd #moodygrams #britainstalent #folkscenery #livefolk #rsa_folknature #scenicbritain #everything_imaginable #folkgood #agameoftones #thelakelanders #properadventure #photosofbritain #dreamingtones #canonphotos #lakedistrictnationalpark #wastwater #neverstopexploring #createyourtrail #patagoniaeurope #gooutside #lakedistrictphotography #lakedistrictphotographer #illgrammers #letsgosomewhere

Morning all! . Well it's Christmas eves eve, I can't believe how this year has just flown by. It's been one to remember that's for sure. . Yesterday I took a ride out over to the Roman fort on Hardknott pass, having never visited this part of the lakes before gave me a true sense of adventure, it's wild and rugged and I loved it. . Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday. Hoping you're not having to do any last minute Christmas shopping! . So I was going to avoid a swiping series but I do think this way of sharing my images is way more powerful. . I've tagged some accounts that have been really supportive throughout this year. Check them out if you don't follow them already. . . . . #lakedistrict #fromlakelandwithlove #ukpotd #moodygrams #britainstalent #folkscenery #livefolk #rsa_folknature #scenicbritain #everything_imaginable #folkgood #agameoftones #thelakelanders #properadventure #photosofbritain #exploremore #folkvibe #canonphotos #lakedistrictnationalpark #neverstopexploring #createyourtrail

Gibson Knott . Well, let me just say the Lake District was it's absolute self yesterday. Torrential rain all day, just how the lakes is 75% of the time. I'll always try and portray a landscape in it's true light. You often see stunning sunrises and sunset from here. That isn't the true lakes in my humble opinion. This really is, driving rain and gale force winds. That is it's true personality. . Here's @zac.vernon at the foot of Gibson Knott, just before we stopped for some dinner then decided to head for home out of the rain. . . . . #lakedistrict #fromlakelandwithlove #ukpotd #moodygrams #britainstalent #folkscenery #livefolk #rsa_folknature #scenicbritain #everything_imaginable #folkgood #agameoftones #thelakelanders #properadventure #photosofbritain #exploremore #folkvibe #canonphotos #lakedistrictnationalpark #neverstopexploring #createyourtrail #ukshots #ukgreatshots #ukshooters

Howitzer . This pinnacle of rock I'm stood on is called the howitzer due to its shape, what's fitting is that the weather bombarded us, an absolutely relentless day out in the lakes. I'm happy to be home with the fire on and my first Christmas dinner on the go. . Had the intention of following the ridge round after Gibson Knott to Easedale Tarn but the weather didn't give in. So we double backed on ourselves and headed back into Grasmere for the world famous gingerbread and a well deserved brew. . . . . #lakedistrict #fromlakelandwithlove #ukpotd #moodygrams #britainstalent #folkscenery #livefolk #rsa_folknature #scenicbritain #everything_imaginable #folkgood #agameoftones #thelakelanders #properadventure #photosofbritain #exploremore #folkvibe #canonphotos #lakedistrictnationalpark #neverstopexploring #createyourtrail

I promise this is my last set from Gummers How, I'm off out tomorrow to head up a few fells so there will be some nice new content. . On the list for tomorrow is Helm Crag and Gibson Knot, heading down via Easedale Tarn so I'll be sure to stop in Grasmere on the way back for some world famous ginger bread! . . . . #lakedistrict #fromlakelandwithlove #ukpotd #moodygrams #britainstalent #folkscenery #livefolk #rsa_folknature #scenicbritain #everything_imaginable #folkgood #agameoftones #thelakelanders #properadventure #photosofbritain #exploremore #folkvibe #canonphotos #lakedistrictnationalpark #ukshots #ukshooters

At home in the clouds . Going back to the morning of the cloud inversion, I haven't got much content lately with work and all the Christmas antics. . I'm heading out on the hill on Thursday to tick a few fells off. Let's hope the weather holds out. That goes for the weekend as well I'm heading up into the mountains for a night in a bothy with the lads! Very much looking forward to that. . These photos were taken just as the sun was coming up, creating for some very dramatic images, I quite like how the inversion dwarfs @sean_howell_ it's almost intimidating. . . . . #lakedistrict #fromlakelandwithlove #ukpotd #moodygrams #britainstalent #folkscenery #livefolk #rsa_folknature #scenicbritain #everything_imaginable #folkgood #agameoftones #thelakelanders #properadventure #photosofbritain #exploremore #folkvibe #canonphotos #lakedistrictnationalpark

Time well spent . I think the world that we live in is completely backwards. We spend more time being slaves to society than being with our loved ones. . For me time is a valuable thing, it's way more important than any material possessions or amount of money I could ever earn. . Had a great past few days with my other half, it's so nice to have someone who's so supportive and doesn't mind them 5am alarms to head out to catch sunrise with you. I am eternally grateful for you. . Here's a few from our wander through the woodlands of Bouth yesterday. . Hope you all have a great weekend . . . . #lakedistrict #fromlakelandwithlove #ukpotd #moodygrams #britainstalent #folkscenery #livefolk #rsa_folknature #scenicbritain #everything_imaginable #folkgood #agameoftones #thelakelanders #properadventure #photosofbritain #exploremore #folkvibe #canonphotos #lakedistrictnationalpark

The gorge of the lost Valley . When heading into the lost Valley most of the hike is long the deep gorge. . This hike really was stunning every step of the way there's nothing better than listening to a river flow and being out in the elements this time of the year. . I sent the drone up just to see what it'd what it'd look like from above and it didn't disappoint. The road cutting through the valley underneath the high peaks of Am Bodach and Chailleach . . . . #glencoe #scotland #earthoutdoors #earthworks #earthmagic #earthshotz #earth_shotz #earthoutdoors #goneoutdoors #scotland_greatshots #scottishhighlands #scotlandsbeauty #scotlandlover #thehighlands #highlandcollective #liveoutside #goneoutdoorsuk #properadventure #folkmag #folkgreen #livefolk #lightroom #rucksackmag #djimavicpro #droneshots #droneoftheday

Glen Etive with @_andrewalexander . Having only a couple of hours before darkness was well upon us after getting out of the hidden valley we headed out to Glen Etive to shoot in the remaining hours of daylight. This Glen was so atmospheric, with the winding river all the way down to Loch Etive. If you're heading to Scotland check out @hiddenscotland for tours of the highlands! . . . . #scotland #earthoutdoors #earthworks #earthmagic #earthshotz #earth_shotz #earthoutdoors #goneoutdoors #scotland_greatshots #scottishhighlands #scotlandsbeauty #scotlandlover #thehighlands #highlandcollective #highlandcollective #liveoutside #goneoutdoorsuk #properadventure #folkmag #folkgreen #livefolk #lightroom #rucksackmag #canonuk #canonphotos #glenetive

Here's another one from my morning jaunt with @sean_howell_ up Gummers How . The light that morning was real slow, it was quite nice to take my time and think about compositions and images rather than just running around like a headless chicken. . From now on I'm going to try and bring you more of a story from the journey with more content of my adventures and endeavours, hope yall are cool with this? . Thanks to @sean_howell_ for hitting that shutter on the second image for me . . . . #lakedistrict #fromlakelandwithlove #ukpotd #moodygrams #britainstalent #folkscenery #livefolk #rsa_folknature #scenicbritain #everything_imaginable #folkgood #agameoftones #thelakelanders #properadventure #photosofbritain #exploremore #folkvibe #canonphotos #lakedistrictnationalpark #ukshooters #ukshots #ukscenery
