The Calm Between Storms

The whole of Britain was recently battered and drenched by storms and floods, the green land enduring some of the worst weather in an age. 

The English Lake District and Cumbria got off lightly compared to some other parts of the country yet still suffered significant storm damage. 
  
I stole several short walks around the Lake District and Ulverston between storms. The dry spells were few and far between, but much-wanted, visually-stunning interludes.

Here are my photographs:
