Over on reddit this week someone posted in the /r/LakeDistrict sub asking for help identifying an old photo of a man with his arm raised on the hill overlooking a pair of lakes and the poster asked "Is this picture taken in the Lake District?".
Ok so I know this is a long shot, but a bit of background. My grandpa sadly passed away last July and ever since I've been wanting to visit his favourite places. I have a feeling this picture was taken in the lakes (Catbells walk, with derwent water in the background) and my grandma seems to think so too. I know the quality isn't great but I've tried to match it up to other peoples pictures to confirm. (My aim is to try and have my picture taken here, too).
Yesterday the redditor made a follow up post with the original photo and one of here:
She'd found the location and had her photo taken on exactly the same rocks in the same pose.
What a lovely way to remember her grandpa.
