Lake District – High Street & Pasture Beck

A series of photographs taken in the Lake District while on a circuit of Hayeswater, The Knott, High Street, Thornthwaite and back down Pasture Beck. It was a nice bright day for landscape and outdoor photography, as well as hiking of course! This view is of Rebecca and Barney as they drop down from the summit of Thornthwaite towards Threshwaite before dropping down into the valley to Pasture Beck. I was carrying two cameras that day, as is often the case. The Sony A7rii with the Sony FE 16-35 f/4 & a Fuji X-T1 with the 50-140 f/2.8. All the shots attached here were taken with the Sony. It was a wide angle lens day!

Looking down the track that leads up Hayeswater Gill from the carpark at Hartsop. You have to get there early for a space, but I guess that applies to most places in the Lake District.

Fell running in the Lake District, UK.
A fell runner descending The Knott and heading towards High Street. Thankfully Barney resisted the urge to chase him! The amount of detail the Sony A7rii is picking up on that stone track with the 16-35 lens is incredible. I just wish it was as weatherproof as the Fuji X-T1 I also carry. If it was, it would nearly be the perfect camera. Hopefully the A7riii will be!

Hiking in the Lake District, UK.
A hiker, Rebecca, making their way to towards High Street & Mardale Ill Bell. For some reason, we took the trail to the right instead of the left. If we’d taken the left one there’d have been some lovely views of Haweswater & Blea Water. Like this shot of Rebecca descending towards Blea Water.

Hiking in the Lake District, UK.
Here we are hiking through the boulder field that’s halfway along Pasture Beck and not long before we’re back at the car and the 1.5 hour drive home again! Worth every minute of it!
