Striding Edge, Helvellyn

Helvellyn and Ullswater

A collection of Helvellyn and Ullswater mountain and landscape images captured from several elevated locations on Helvellyn or overlooking Ullswater. Images of particular interest are those of the entire Helvellyn range seen from Hare Shaw on Place Fell, which includes the villages of Glenridding and Patterdale, and one from the well known viewpoint of Gowbarrow Fell, taken early in the morning when the mists were still lying on Ullswater. The image of Striding Edge, taken from just below the summit of Helvellyn one November morning captures strikingly the narrow nature of the ridge and its elevation above Grisedale.
