sketch in pencil in Mickledon Lake DistrictEven at 10 in the morning it was getting hot in the valley of Mickledon, but thankfully as the terrain rose, a breeze brought relief, and a swig of water helped too. This was a good moment to get out the sketchbook and get down on paper my impression of the barren grandeur of this lovely corner of the English Lake District.

I took a reference photograph too in case I want to develop this into something larger. The mountains of Pavey Arc in the background had a distinctly pink hue.
