Just for fun: Another Lake District picture quiz

(Featured image: Another view from question number 1 below)

Just over a year ago, I designed a little bit of a quiz based on places I’d visited around the Lake District (if you didn’t see it at the time, you can take a look here). I know that some of you really enjoyed it, so I said I’d do another one – and here it is!

It’s just for fun, and all you have to do is guess where in the Lake District I’m standing to take the photograph. Some of the places will have been featured on the blog (just to test you’ve been reading!), but not all. Answers are at the bottom of the page.

I'm at a well-known viewpoint in the South Lakes, but which one?
