As temperatures fall and the leaves turn stunning shades of russet and gold, the Langdale Valley is at its most photogenic. Stunning views from Blea Tarn of the Langdale Pikes and nearby parking make this an ideal location. Enjoy a walk whilst practising your Landscape photography skills. The shores of the Tarn can be wet in places, so waterproofs are a good idea. The path is made up of compacted stone, providing a reasonably level walking surface which undulates up and down small gradients, making it suitable for all abilities. In bad weather boots are a must, in case of mud or water logging.
Items to bring: Stout Shoes, Waterproofs, Flask of drink, and Packed Lunch Tripods and of course Cameras. –
