Firstly to Cockermouth which has seen a renaissance since the devastating floods of last year

We visited the town in recent weeks to enjoy the Christmas Lights.

Market Street.

Beautifully decorated windows at Lily and Co.

Banks Ironmongers looking warm this cold afternoon.

The start of Main Street

[ There's still the occasional builder skip still parked in the street where work continues to renovate some buildings ]

A local project inspired by the "floods of wool" last year.
Tree Cosies . . . at least they'll be warmer to hug !

Despite the snowy weather I still have to go to work . . .

A morning sunrise over Loweswater.

Driving to Keswick via Whinlatter Pass.

Skiddaw with a mantle of white snow.

Dark clouds building behind a bright summit . . . snow is on the way.

This would have been the George Fishers Webcam view on the day.

An evening walk around Keswick after the lights had been switched on.

Snow on the fells . . . snow on the Christmas landscapes above.

Electric Icicles hang from the Moot Hall
The Old Keswickian Fish and Chip Shop.

Bright lights at the Scafell Hotel.

A lovely tree in Packhorse Court.
Snowing hard on the real trees and pavements.

Christmas is all about families

and we've managed to travel to see, or been visited by all our family during the last month.

Tom and Abi at the Whinlatter sign last weekend.

A sub zero walk alongside Crummock Water.

And finally . . . on the longest night of the year . . .

I went outside at midnight and was so staggered by the beauty of the scenery under the full moon

that I spent a cold but pleasurable half an hour with the camera.

I've called them "Ten Second photos at Minus Ten Degrees" . . . hope you like them.

Stars over Mellbreak at Midnight.

Grasmoor from the bottom of our garden.

The red phone box, the nominal start of so many walks.

Whiteside and Grasmoor, and the old Oak that gives Oak Cottage its name.

So to you all
