Dewentwater in ice, 2010.

Apologies for posting so little in the second half of 2010. Somehow work and family responsibilities squeezed out all the time for photography.  However, I was over in the Lakes again, earlier this month, and thought i would leave you with this memento of the coldest winter on record since 1910.  This is Derwentwater from Crow Park, near Keswick. The lake was frozen. It reminded me of the winter of 1963, when I was a nipper. My parents took us to Windermere to see the ice. There were people walking way out from the edge and, i think, even some fool driving a car on the lake.  Well, if the instruments don't lie, it has been even colder this time, and we're only half way through.

 

Happy New Year everyone. Have a snug one.

I took a short break too, and before I knew it half the year had gone. Hope to see you here more often in 2011.

Happy New Year to you and yours
Ian Thompson: I hope to post a bit more too. Last year i seemed to run out of images in about September, then found myself too busy to take any more. Happy snapping in 2011.

Happy New Year Ian!
The snow and ice are quite a nice contrast to the short (but very warm) Xmas holiday I had in Houston.
Ian Thompson: Hi Deji, I've just come back from China, which made Newcastle seem quite mild!
Excellent image, and a great record.

I am unable to see the name Derwentwater without hearing it spoken in Ivor Cutler's voice, so this also brought an unintended chuckle... smile
Ian Thompson: Now I'm intrigued Harry. I know a little Ivor Cutler, but where does Derwentwater appear is his ouvre?
I like this - the three poles leading my eyes in a fine diagonal journey ;
Ian Thompson: I was pleased too - and the other object on the ice take the diagonal further. Thanks. Ian.
Me again, fresh from digging out my old vinyl copy of 'Gruts' smile

Derwentwater appears on 'Fish Fright' - it's where the protagonist's girlfriend caught the condition from a carp. Clearly a dangerous place...
