NY4624 : Ullswater

taken 1 month ago, near to Pooley Bridge, Cumbria, Great Britain

This is 1 of 5 images, with title Ullswater in this square
This, IMHO, atmospheric photo (not by me!) shows the River Eamont leaving Ullswater. It is taken from the temporary pedestrian / cyclist bridge in place while the new Pooley Bridge is being built. The prominent hill left of centre is Birk Fell (512m), which falls steeply to the north-west into Ullswater, but rises gently to the left to Place Fell (657m) which is rather obscured by the trees.

In the far distance is the Helvellyn range.
River Eamont

The River Eamont is formed by the outflow from Ullswater in the Lake District, later augmented by Dacre Beck from the west and the River Lowther which carries the water from Haweswater north to the Eamont at Penrith. It reaches the River Eden 3 miles east of Penrith (LinkExternal link Wikipedia).
