Snowy Kirkstone Pass photograph Lake District
This is the Lake District’s highest pass that is open to cars. It connects Ambleside to Patterdale. A rather wonderful mountain drive, one not to be taken lightly in snowy conditions. This is a popular view looking down towards Ullswater.
It’s a rather beautiful drive past Windermere and up into the hills, with a height of just under 1500feet it is the highest pass open to cars in the Lake District. The snow was clear on the roads and the pass was open, as we passed the inn the snow became a little deeper on the roadside, but will plenty of room for cars to pass. The view just past the now famous Kirkstone Pass Inn down towards Ullswater is rather devine.
I couldn’t resist a stop, so we pulled into a lay-by, I donned the big wellies and headed out for a quick walk. I didn’t want to head far, as this was just a very brief soiree into the hills before a late morning arrival in Carlisle.
The light and cloud cover was perfect really, a lovely dusting on the hills and a very chilly stream formed the perfect backdrop and foreground for a rather quick landscape image.
I hadn’t been to the Lakes for a little while and with just a 90 minute detour, I’ve already set the wheels in motion for a return in April for a full photography exploratory week before a potential workshop date later in the year.
