Storm on Derwent.

The weather changed so quickly on this day, one minute we were sat on the side of the lake basking in the sun, the next thing we felt spots of rain on our faces, then the water in the lake started lapping the shore more fiercely and a silence fell as the dark clouds formed above our heads. I took this picture moments before a deluge announced itself on us and everyone else. It was a wonderful experience and summed up the characteristics of Lakeland completely. I must tell you I did get a small feeling of pleasure as I pulled on my water proofs and everyone else scattered for shelter or just got soaked. So now you know what's in that large rucksack I carry with me even on hot sunny days.
