Around Wastwater

Here are some landscape photos which I took back in August when we were in the wonderfully rugged terrain around Wastwater in Cumbria, England. I’ll put up some colour ones next time but for now here are four Black & Whites from the hundred or so pictures that I took.

Lenticular Cloud

This is not the best example that I have seen pictures of, but it is the only Lenticular (lens-shaped) cloud I have seen in real life.  Have a look at this Wikipedia article for more info., sometimes they are even mistaken for U.F.O’s!

and they flash with his lightning.
The clouds churn about at his direction.
They do whatever he commands throughout the earth.

Job 37:11-12
