2022 – the year in the Lakes


Next up in the reviews of my year is a year in the Lake District. It wasn’t a year as such, but it was five weeks, over three holiday periods, the longest I have spent over twelve months in a part of the country that means a lot to me. Below are favourite photos that I took in Cumbria over 2022, roughly in chronological order (I was there in January, September/October and December). Each has a link to a higher-resolution version. If you want to see more, they are all documented on my Flickr Lake District and Cumbria pages, together with many other photos taken from 2008 onwards.

  1. As i have never visited the Lake District I am hoping to take a short coach trip holiday there next year. Wishing you an excellent 2023!

    1. Hello Linda,

      I am sure that you will love it. When it stops raining it is so beautiful – and it can be quite beautiful when the rain is falling too. Have a happy 2023.
