On a frosty December morning, with temperatures struggling to get to zero, and the sun as dim as an old man's eyes, the landscape is too beautiful for words. So, I'm not going to waffle on this week, I'll let the pictures tell the story for me. Sit back and enjoy this walk, along the banks of the Derwent, from Portinscale to Keswick.
It's the Winter Solstice next week, heralding the joys of Yuletide. However you are celebrating winter, we wish you a happy one.
