A set of images of Ullswater that I took from the bus, when travelling between Windermere and Penrith.

Ullswater is the second largest lake in the Lake District, being almost 9 miles long. 
The road from Glenridding to Penrith follows the west shore of Ullswater for quite a distance.
Some cloud building up over Ullswater. 
That water looks cold!
Towards the northern end of Ullswater. 

A view across to the east side of Ullswater. 

The bus journey is well worth making as it also climbs over the Kirkstone Pass as well before reaching Ullswater.

Keswick: Market Day: Part 1 of 2

Despite the less than inviting weather, overcast and cold, the Saturday Market in Keswick was as popular as ever with plenty of stalls and potential customers. 

I would rate this Market as the best in the Lake District. 
Unfortunately it started to rain!

Collecting for Charity.
