"....a constantly changing light and visual geometry, the hardness of the rock, the threat of its perpendicular nature thrusting steeply, cracks crammed with rare alpine vegetation clinging, the hours of happy solitude, the quietness of a distant sheeps call and the movement of the wind, the chatter of passing ramblers, the roaring of the turbulent beck, the soaring flight of the ravens, the peace in the woodland, the velvet verdant sward, a mossy trod, a boulder to rest tired legs, the flash of trout as it turns in the sunlit river; the welcome tavern, is the painters Lake District.. working paint to create the painting is a secret that is not easily given up."

Back in 1968 I did my first Lakeland fells summits St Sunday Crag and Fairfield in the snow a wonderful day out organised by the Blackburn Ramblers I was 14 and the chairman Vic Feather kept an eye on me. I owe much to this guy and my fellow ramblers ..a few years later on and another blackburn Rambler A Wainwright became my guidee and mentor for a couple of years more. Now in 2017 I'm still seeking....
'The fleeting hour of life of those who love the hills is quickly spent, but the hills are eternal. Always there will be the lonely ridge, the dancing beck, the silent forest; always there will be the exhilaration of the summits. These are for the seeking, and those who seek and find while there is still time will be blessed both in mind and body.' A wainwright The Western Fells ( Book 7) Published 1970
