Rainbow over Troutbeck Tongue
The day we left Cumbria after our little holiday, I decided to drive up over Kirkstone Pass, as it’s one of my favourite routes. Heading north from Windermere we were clearly heading towards a change in the weather; the conditions on the other side of the pass were dark and menacing with lots of low cloud. As we passed Troutbeck Tongue – this strangely shaped little fell – it was illuminated in a shaft of rich sunlight against the low cloud behind, complete with a little rainbow. The gloomy picture is looking north down the valley from Kirkstone Pass into the much gloomier weather on the other side.
