View north-east from Yealand Redmayne, near Carnforth, Lancashire, UK, 30 May, 2005

The prominent hill is Farleton Knott (Farleton Fell), at 265m, with Holme Park Fell to the right. That, with Hutton Roof Crag (off the right of the image), is a nature reserve and SSSI, considered one of the best examples of limestone pavement in the UK. There are plans to extend the Arnside & Silverdale AONB eastwards to encompass it, providing further statutory protection.

The buildings are the villages of Holme, built alongside the Lancaster Canal, and Burton-in-Kendal, once an important market.
The hills on the extreme horizon are the Howgill Fells (part of the Pennines) near Sedbergh.

This may seem a quiet valley, but some of the UK's main transport routes pass between this wood and the hill: the centuries-old A6 main road from London to Scotland, the West Coast main railway line (again, London-Glasgow/Edinburgh), Lancaster Canal and the M6 motorway (the modern version of the A6), plus the Lancashire/Cumbria border.

The main reason I took this photo was that it corresponds to the view from the windows of an adjacent house. Imagine opening your curtains to this view every morning.
