Pix Of The Day: English Lake District Panorama
CREDITS: © Ann Bowker/Mad About Mountains MAP: North West Fells


This is the eastern elevation of the hills generally known as the North Western Fells, from the classification and book by Alfred Wainwright. With only four summits in the area standing at over 3,000 feet of altitude, and with a maritime climate that usually brings low pressure and wet conditions from the Atlantic west, winter snow is not a significant climatic feature. When it does arrive, especially if there is barometric high pressure with clear skies and sunshine, then the district becomes a wonderland painted in greens, browns, and white. Often the downside is that these conditions are usually accompanied by bitterly cold Arctic airflows from the north or east.
