Upper Eskdale is the wildest and the most spectacular valley in the Lake District, at least in my opinion. And now my good friend Terry Abraham has made a video about it that’s just come out on DVD. The video features local mountain guide David Powell-Thompson on three walks in the area – day trips on Harter Fell and Hard Knott and a two day trip with a high camp on Esk Pike and Bowfell.
As expected from Terry the Lake District looks spectacular with wide sweeping shots of the landscape and quite a few dramatic aerial views. The highlights are the beautiful dawn and dusk shots from the camp near Esk Hause but there are also splendid scenes of the lush greenness of the Lake District in summer on the Harter Fell walk and the chilly snowy landscape of Hard Knott in winter. In just three walks in one area every aspect of the Lake District fells is captured by Terry, showing the huge contrasts that occur during the year.
