Cumbria Skiddaw seen from Loughrigg Fell, Lake District National Park, Cumbria, UK



Cumbria Photo: a fantastic Cumbria Photograph Featuring Skiddaw seen from Loughrigg Fell, Lake District National Park, Cumbria, UK

Photograph Taken On Thursday, August 8, 2019


Yes, they're intervisible, though this is the view from a carefully-chosen* anonymous crag on the sprawling hilltop, about 1½ km from Loughrigg's main summit, and it takes a big lens to get a good view! Unsurprisingly, there's a lot of telephoto compression of the apparent distances. The foreground is more of Loughrigg Fell, but the rocky, partly wooded slope behind the sheep is east of Town End, Grasmere (including Dove Cottage), 3.1 km away, and the smoother slope behind, with isolated trees, is at the head of Dunmail Raise, 7.4 km away. The first forested slope on the left is above Hause Point, a little closer than halfway along Thirlmere and 11¾ km from here, then the next forested slope, apparently blocking the 'v' of the valley, overlooks the northern tip of Thirlmere; it's 15 km away, just south of Raven Crag (461 m), to be slightly more exact. That just leaves Skiddaw itself (931m 26¼ km), generating an evening plume of cloud, and the slightly nearer secondary summit, Little Man (865 m). * aka 'stumbled upon accidentally'.View image on Flickr
