Looking south from the shore at Armboth .
and north where there are signs that the cloud is beginning to thin.
The path from Armboth follows the fence-line up to the tree-line above.
A burst of sun brightens proceedings.
Looking north across the wide expanse of marshy ground towards Blencathra and Clough Head.
Behind, the Helvellyn ridge is thickly blanketed beneath a roll of cloud
.but all is clear to the west.
Armboth Fell from High Tove.
Clough Head and The Dodds ridge across High Tove's summit cairn.
It was interesting to watch the Helvellyn ridge slowly clearing as the bank of cloud moved slowly eastwards.
Martha - Queen of Armboth Fell.
Armboth Fell has its critics but there is no denying that the views from the summit are worth getting ones feet wet for!!
Armboth Fell panoramic view
Nearly clear .
Heading towards Fisher Crag from Armboth Fell there are great views northwards.
Helvellyn from Fisher Crag.
Nothing seen from the summit .(Armboth Fell) ..can compare with the very beautiful view
of Thirlmere and Blencathra from the fine cairn on Fisher Crag (AW Armboth Fell 5).
Blencathra and Clough Head.
