The Howgill Fells, Cumbria, 2007

These (above) were all taken on one day in April 2007 from the top of the Howgill Fells.
The Howgills are just North of the Yorkshire Dales, and are quite unique in Britain.
They cover an area of about 40 square miles with no fences, no trees, and no habitition,
but with these curved hills and a few sheep.
Someone described them as looking like sleeping elephants.
I was there on a hazy warm day after dry weather,
and being before new grass growth comes through, the grass looks quite brown.
