A day behind ! Was under the weather yesterday so finished this piece tonight !

Had the most amazing day exploring the Langdales with my sister Jude when I was in England in May… this is a contemporary rendering of my photo I took – Gretel is my sister’s cute labradoodle.   The Langdales offer some of the most stunning hiking trails in the English Lake District.
