Nicky Nook tarn
A panoramic view from the back side of Nicky Nook beauty spot in Scorton, Wyre (which is located in Lancashire, UK).
The tarn is set in moorland peat and supports small fish (probably Trout) and its crystal-blue water is inviting to any passing hiker or rambler on a hot day! Above the trees that fringe its left-hand bank can be seen the snaking M6 motorway heading towards Forton services – its futuristic “UFO” eatery just visible if you zoom in – and onto Lancaster.
The far hills in the centre of the picture are Clougha Pike and Grit Fell, which loom over the small farming village of Quernmore; the closer hill to the right-hand side leads to Hawthornthwaite Fell in Over Wyreside; and to the far right you arrive at Grizedale Bridge, Holme Wood and Grizedale reservoir.
A pretty damn fine view from the top of a small hill, don’t you think?!
