I hope the time we spend outdoors stays with him for life, there's so many benefits to being out in the hills both mentally and physically. A bit more time and stamina building and it won't be long until he's summiting proper mountains. Massive thanks to @dionnebarton29 for taking the photo 😊📸
It was a dry but mainly overcast walk around Dovedale but towards the end of the walk things started to brighten up a little. This is looking down to High Hartsop Dodd with Brothers Water making an appearance a myriad of fells on view, with Place Fell and Angletarn Pikes taking centre stage. . . . . . #adventurevisuals #adventurelife #thegreatoutdoors #osmaps #ordnancesurvey #igooutdoors #GetOutside #hikingculture #ukhikers #scenicbritain #lakeswalksandpubs #hikingthelakes #fromlakelandwithlove #ilovethelakedistrict #ukhikingofficial #lakedistrict #cumbria #igerslakedistrict #igerscumbria #visitcumbria #lakedistrictuk #visitcumbria #thisismyadventure #lakedistrictuk #visitengland #lifeoutdoors #ukpotd #capturingbritain #peoplescreative
"We are very, very small, but we are profoundly capable of very, very big things." - Stephen Hawking . . Mountaineering seems to be an accurate reflection of this quote. Despite being so small, we are still capable of conquering huge obstacles.

Had a quick trip out to Ladybower reservoir yesterday which was a nice last trip out on my week off. I'll be honest I really know how to pick weeks off weather wise as it's been sh*te but a welcome rest non the less 😂 Hope everyone's had a great weekend! . . . . . . . . . . #ladybower #reservoir #ladybowerreservoir #derwent #upperderwentvalley #derbyshire #peakdistrict #peakdistrictnationalpark #visitpeakdistrict #ukscenery #getoutside #uniquedistrict #peakscollective #ukhikingofficial #peopleofadventure #thefrozendivide #landscape #builtforadventure #nationalparksuk #landscapephotography #createyourtrail #nikon #50mm

Kilt Rock 🎸 😎✌️
On the way up halls fell ridge to blencathra summit from therlkeld. We got lucky to get a bit free time so we hit the lakes to bag a quick summit up and down in 2 n a half hours. #blencathra #hallsfellridge #threlkeld #lakedistrict #hiking #hikingcouple #scrambling #trailmagazine #osmaps #ordancesurvey #fromlakelandwithlove #GetOutside #ukhikers #ukhikingofficial #mountainsummit #adventuretime #adventuretogether #mountains #waterfall #photography #landscapephotography
Buttermere pines. I absolutely love this place. So many things to photograph around Buttermere and Honister Pass. This shot was taken in June this year, shortly after sunrise. Tagged some great landscape pages in the image. _____________________________________ Nikon D750 . . .

If you’re looking for a short hike at Hadrian’s Wall then it’s not too far from Steel Rigg or from the National Landscape Discovery Centre to the beautiful Sycamore Gap. There are a few strenuous steep slopes though! We walked the three miles down to Housesteads before returning via farmland and the Roman Fort of Vindolandia. The last couple of miles, across undulating hills, were the worst! But 8 miles later, and with a cider in hand, we were almost ready to do it all over again. Almost, but not quite 😄 . . . . . #visitnorthumberland #visitnorthumbria #northumberland #northumberland_pics #northumberland_uk #igersnorthumberland #ig_northumberland #abrummieinnorthumberland #abrummiehomeandabroad #visitengland #visitengland 🇬🇧 #visitbritain #lovenorthumberland #hadrianswall #sycamoregap #northumberlandnationalpark #ukhikingofficial #ukhikers
Oh how I loved this stretch, with those big open skies, sheep scattered across the fields, the path winding and curving into the distance ✨ #pennineway #ukhiking #ukhikingofficial #hikingadventures #walking #solofemaletravel
We spent the day sharpening Adam's core navigation skills today. Bearings, back bearings, effective relocation and the constant tracking of progress. We also looked at reading contours and moving safely and efficiently on steep ground with no paths. It can be tough to cover as much ground as possible in a single day. It's tiring. To be a good navigator, you have to slow down and look around you. You have to really see the shape of the landscape and all its details. You use your ears as well as your eyes, your legs and your lungs. One thing also I try to pass on to each of the people I take out on courses is the philosophy of caring for the environment you move through. We really do take a lot from these places and it's important to give something back - to respect them. Look after them. Minimise your own impact and help balance that of others. Probably the most important thing about my courses is that without a doubt, it's a laugh! It's hard enough as it is, so it's good to relax and just have a good day out. I think myself, Gwen and Adam ticked all the boxes today! Got some nice pics too. 😁
This week’s blog post is all about my recent trip to Lac Blanc and why it’s the perfect introduction to hiking in the Alps 🏔 . . #️⃣ #PeopleOfAdventure 🏔 Link in Bio
Adam taking a bearing earlier today. This was his last one. He was nackered. I was nackered. Gwen was bored, waiting for us. The end of a long day of learning for Adam and of teaching for me. Happy to be home for a curry and a film on the couch with the pup. Think she has also taken the knock!
A forgotten shot I took just over a month ago now in the Peak District. What you're looking at in the bottom half of this image is the village of Castleton, illuminated by it's street lights. The biggest and brightest star you can see in the sky is Mars 🌌 Castleton was a place I visited during my first real trip out as a 'travel photographer'. I've been back a handful of times since and always enjoy driving through the epic Winnats Pass (like a mini Cheddar Gorge). At a glance I think it looks like the village is on fire 😅🔥 - #astroworld #astrophoto #nightsky #nightscape #nightphotography #starscape #milkywaychasers #natgeotravel #natgeolandscape #yourshotphotographer #mars #peakdistrict #igersderbyshire #castleton #mamtor #landscape_captures #landscape_photography #landscapes_of_britain #ukhikingofficial #ukpotd #capturingbritain #darksky #mpbcurated #longexposure_shots #benroletsgo #creativetones #abstractphotography #fineartphotography #shooting 📷 #passionforphotography
Had a great walk doing the Dovedale round in the Eastern fells. There's some steep sections both going up and down but not too bad. It's fairly quiet as well until you join the main Fairfield Horseshoe for a section but you're soon off that on to the quieter fells again. This pic is on Hartsop Above How with Fairfield, Hart Crag and Dove Crag behind. Can anybody spot Priests Hole? . . . . . #adventurevisuals #adventurelife #thegreatoutdoors #osmaps #ordnancesurvey #igooutdoors #GetOutside #hikingculture #ukhikers #scenicbritain #lakeswalksandpubs #hikingthelakes #fromlakelandwithlove #ilovethelakedistrict #ukhikingofficial #lakedistrict #cumbria #igerslakedistrict #igerscumbria #visitcumbria #thisismyadventure #lakedistrictuk #visitengland #lifeoutdoors #ukpotd #capturingbritain #peoplescreative #mountainview #walkinguk
By the time we were coming down the clouds were clearing and the sun was trying to come out. Too late to climb up it again. That’s life 😀
By the time we got to the summit we were in thick cloud and just a little bit cold. We did stop and shelter near the trig point and have a picnic 😬Numb hands and noses🌫❄️💨
Today we went up Skiddaw, Skiddaw Little Man and down to Latrigg in wonderfully moody weather. Derwent and Keswick still looking good in the distance.
Just a very small selection of the photos I got from Dunham Massey today 🦌📸 I have never been here before but I’d highly recommend for deer pictures and general wildlife! It’s a gorgeous place and the deer are so close. One literally walked over to us so I could pet it! 😄 • • • #outdoors #hiking #naturephotography #landscapephotography #adventure #explore #hikingadventures #countryside #walking #visitengland #photooftheday #views #adventuretime #landscape #photography #wildlifephotography #blog #blogger #travelphotography #gloriousbritain #britains_talent #genuinebritain #capturingbritain #ukscenery #walkinguk #ukhikingofficial #ukshots #dunhammassey #deer #nationaltrust

It is said that An Lochan Uaine (the Green Loch) in Glenmore Forest Park is green because the pixies used to wash their clothes in the loch. I don't know if that's true, but this loch indeed is magically green. 😍
🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 If you love Snowdonia but you’ve not checked out the Carneddau range... you need to!! These mountains are beautiful - with the Glyders and the Snowdon range to the South, and the Ocean to the North... the views are epic! 💙 #nofilter . . . . . . #challenge #ultimatewales #adventureisoutthere #mountainlife #welshmountains #northwalestagram #ukhikingofficial #ukhikers #findyourepic #igerswales #themountainsarecalling #ukhiking #getoutside #thisiswales #lifeoutdoors #ilovewales #snowdonia #wanderlustwales #carneddau #climbmountains #domoreofwhatmakesyouhappy #beautifulscenery #mountainadventures #snowdoniagram #discovernationalparks #snowdoniapics #adventurer #adventureblog #expedition
