photoblog image Nab Scar from Rydal Cave

Nab Scar from Rydal Cave

 

As Frank and I walked and talked and took photo's of the beautiful

Rydal Water, he appeared to be searching for something.  I thought

perhaps it was an off shoot of the path, and just followed along - he

knows The Lake District so well - I had complete confidence that he'd

find whatever he was searching for. There was an incline that evened

out just as he exclaimed "This is it".  I walked up behind him and

found him staring into this large amphitheater...

Rydal Cave

 

It was amazing, with water so still it was like a mirror, despite the fish!

The walls of the cave were full of color, and when I turned around and

looked out the mouth of the cave, Nab Scar was lit up by the setting sun. 

It just caught my breath it was so beautiful!

Definitely worth the search. The light on that far mountainside is wonderful
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh it was! It usually is, when Frank says he wants to show me something... we always fall in love with the same places!

What a privilege to see it just as the sun was setting, Elizabeth

Been there, done that smile I stood in more or less the same place last November; I was taking a brief respite from the rain, though smile Oddly, I did not have the same golden view opposite... wink
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Oh yay! Your view may have been a bit different, then, yes!
You made it just in time to capture this fabulous scene Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes! The sun was in just the right position! Thank you, Richard!
Goodness! Looks like autumn trees lit up. Beautiful.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Mary - it was so gorgeous!

Just remembered I took a photo of Chad here - long ago...

... he is lurking on the far left.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Wow! Isn't that cool! It's not often I've been somewhere that any of you have! How exciting! I see him lurking there!
A lovely shot, you must both have been overcome with atmosphere right through this walk.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Brian! If I may speak for Frank - you are certainly right!

The stuff of fairy tales Elizabeth - what an idyllic looking place.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It certainly felt that way! It's lovely, Anne - and not difficult to get to - you and Quinn might enjoy it. There are benches along the lake to sit and take it in, as well!
A lovely spot, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Indeed, Tom - I could've stared at it forever... but the sun was sinking fast, and we had to walk back into town for dinner...
There's gold in them thar hills
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile There MUST be! smile
it's such a magnificent scene with the reflections Elizabeth... it would take my breath away as well....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was truly a sight to behold, Peter!
I like your post.
