The Lake District in Cumbria in the north of England is one of the most photographed places, certainly in the UK. This collection is split into the focus areas below where I have based my work to date.
Before we go down to the water, here are selection of images from the Lake District National Park focusing on the peaks, perculiarly named 'Fells' in this area.
Ullswater is the second largest lake in the Lake District, the ribbon shaped lake is nearly ten miles in length and was formed by glaciers in the last ice age.
A play on words for the title of this long focal length long exposure looking north up Ullswater. Not only are the three slopes of central to the image - but it also reminds me of the temperature while taking it.
Thirlmere is technically not a lake, but a reservoir - but is no less beautiful for it. It holds the water supply for the city of Manchester one hundred miles away.
Derwent Water is a small lake of 3 miles in length with the picturesque town of Keswick bordering it's northern shores.It is surrounded by forrested hillside and old jetties.
One of my personal favourites, not the easiest to get to but there are peaceful rewards aplenty. Taking it's name from the adjacent village this lake is surrounded by fells of considerable size, for the UK at least.
