That tree part in the center looks like a giant scary insect.

 That is because Nytram has been downloading clips from Hammer Horror movies again. I dare say that he has one of Hazel Court fleeing through the undergrowth, hotly pursued by Christopher Lee, who will himself shortly get a stake through the heart, courtesy of Peter Cushing.

I like Nytram's photos, but it should be said that the only gloom and doom in the Lake District is when all the Japanese tourists go home. Until then the area is choc a block full of jolly ladies giggling and adding enormously to the gaiety of the nation.

Yes, well, quite, I imagine in the nowaday that the Lake District is quite an attraction for tourists, considering its quaint thatch-roofed "cottages" and other charms, set against the works of The Lakes poets including Wordsworth, Coleridge, Southey, and Tennyson.

My high school senior-year English class was bored to tears by Robert Tightpants who was determined we'd learn to appreciate his love for them along with Shakespeare.

 Sounds like old Tobin. Nice bloke but really right on and a great one for Robert Owen, Graves, Sassoon and all the other decent, well meaning anti war poets who were determined to bore the arse off of an entire generation of bloody minded teens. It did not help much that the maths master was always happy to share his memories of WWI which were usually a variation of, "What was it like? Rum for breakfast, rum for dinner and rum for tea. Bloody marvelous boyo."

I love green and this shade is brilliant. Also I am read a book by Elizabeth George and the crime takes place in the Lake District. George can sure paint with words a lovely landscape, including the many bits of quicksand when the tide goes out to make me shiver.
