Drawing 82: Whin Rigg
Direction of view: S
Notes: From the road to Wasdale Head, just north of the road junction at grid reference NY152054. This scene also appears in Lakeland Mountain Drawings (458). As with all the Lakeland Mountain Drawings, it is a new drawing of the same scene.
Comments: Image 1 was taken during a solo youth hostelling trip around the western Lake District in 1979. Specifically, on a day walk from Wastwater youth hostel on 4th August 1979. After ascending Buckbarrow, Seatallan and Middle Fell (drawing 249) there was “a race down the valley – and rewarding photography right up to Wasdale Head”. This included sketches 278, 257, 33, 58, 226, 85, 298, 285, 134, 337, 368 and this one. Thirteen sketches for the day!
I took the picture for this project (image 2) on 24th May 2016, on a day of photography in Wasdale with Anne Setright (see 257 for an account of that day).
