RAINY DAYS IN THE LAKE DISTRICT


RAINY DAYS IN THE LAKE DISTRICT

VAL CORBETT    Book Number: 84901    Product format: Paperback

Soaked to the skin, fields flooded, reservoirs overflowing, toddlers splashing in puddles, canoeists going down rapids under now-low bridges or along country lanes now flooded, a very soggy and unhappy looking Belted Galloway sheep with his white band hanging forlornly, a fell-walker pondering the inevitable, emptying out flooded rowing boats, stunningly beautiful rainbows across the landscape or the permanent one across the tremendous waterfall below the stony bridge at Aira Force and a tongue-in-cheek plaque which reads 'In loving memory of a sunny day in Borrowdale', even the sheep are huddled against the walls and three have found their way into a bus shelter, cyclists tackle the mud and the World Championship Sheep Dog Trials in Lowther go ahead despite the thick clay-like mud. The last but not least of our few examples is the altered road sign saying '½ a mile to (VERY) Wet Sleddale.' An album to bring back happy memories, Val Corbett has been out in the foulest weather to capture the Lake District's vast rolling skies, 10,000 daffodils, happy soggy campers, exhausted sheep dogs, the Christmas lights at Keswick, an acer tree after rain in close up and the yellow-capped swimmers enduring the Great North Swim at Windermere. A real taste of Britain in these captioned photographs. Small postcard-sized softback. Colour photos, 160pp.
