Aint you going all over  South America somewhere with a rather large over stuffed camera bag on your back Jonathan??

Little bit ;)

But it won't be over stuffed.

3 cameras, tripod, filters, batteries, memory + clothes, wet and cold weather gear and spare shoes for 4 days' walking + sleeping bag + pack + 2 litres of water are all coming in at 12.5 kilos.  Which ain't too bad with a proper harness.  By comparison, my hand luggage for the flight out appears to be about 15 kilos.
It's Guest's round

Well I managed to get away again overnight ( Sunday ) to the Lake District staying this time at Glenridding on a Campsite used mainly by people who have the intention of climbing Helvelyn. ( That should be a walk in the Park for Jonathan now  ;D ). I chose the easier option and headed for the shore of Ullswater at dawn and then off to Aira Force Waterfall. Getting up early on Monday morning in the Lake District really pays of as I didn't see another sole until around 9.00am by which time I had decided to move on to Brothers Water which is on the way back via Kirkstone Pass. Unfortunately the clouds gathered there to ruin any hope of a decent sky for a picture so I made do and moved on to a vantage point near Ambleside with a great view over Lake Windermere.

I also managed a few shots on film this time so I will have to wait for the negs to come back to see if I had any success.  A Few Digital pictures below.
