Scenic mountaintop tarns hailed
Bookmark and Share
Those wishing to not just go walking in the Lake District but make the most of the best scenic shots may wish to pick up some mountain vistas with small tarns in the foreground, it has been suggested.

Guardian country diarist Tony Greenbank said some of his readers had "taken me to task" over the fact that he had not previously mentioned some of the views such tarns could offer, including that of the Haystacks summit tarn and High Crag beyond it.

Responding to this, he listed a number of tarns that those wearing walking boots might want to visit, such as Lambfoot Dub above the Styhead Pass, with its "sensationally sited" views to Great Gable.

Another he mentioned was a poll on top of the Langdale Pikes with an outstanding vista of Bowfell.

One slightly larger tarn that may offer a foreground view to a photograph of the Pikes themselves is Lingmoor Tarn, which is one of three visited on a guided walk by Lake District National Park rangers next month, also including Little Langdale Tarn and Blea Tarn.
