A wander in the woods near Brotherswater at the base of Hartsop Above How. I just loved the position of the lone tree at the rear which appeared to be guarded by the other trees nearer the front.
The Belle of the Ball
A brief moment of light on a rather stunning tree on the shores of Ullswater.
I waited for an hour or so for the right cloud to come along. Might be too simple but I like it.
Looking down on Little Langdale from Great Intake just after dawn.
A lovely morning in the Eden Valley with the early sun starting to burn through the mist.
A simple arrangement of trees that I rather liked.
A view pf the Langdale Pikes from Holme Fell
A small section of Silver Birch in a near frost .
The Summer House
A Beginning and an End
A wee stream that existed only for a short while during a very heavy cloudburst in Glencoe. I was attracted by the fact that I could see both the beginning and the end of the stream. The driving rain and high wind made it a very fleeting chance for a useable image but I was delighted by the outcome.
My wifes horse had thrown a shoe and I was fascinated to see (and smell) the farrier at work.
The Eden Valley
Bales appearing through the mist near Great Salkeld in the Eden Valley, Cumbria
The first view of Ullswater most visitors to the area get as they drive down from the A66.
Two Trees, Temple Sowerby
Two trees at Temple Sowerby with the sun just breaking over the Pennines.
Wall Holm Island
Wall Holm Island perfectly lit against a beautiful misty backdrop.
Edenhall Woods on a particularly beautiful Autumn morning.
Some early morning Bluebells on Birks fell overlooking Ullswater.
Dead Tree at dawn
A wee shot of the path running along the side of Brotherswater taken with the Nikon 180mm lens @ f5.6 - single RAW file processed in Lightroom 5 (I haven't got round to upgrading yet....)
A small moment wandering through a lovely little Silver Birch wood.
The Roadside at Dawn
The Darkness, Ullswater
A slightly wild Autumnal afternoon overlooking Ullswater.
The mist just rising from a wee corner of Ullswater. A single RAW file processed in LR5 and Silver Efex.
A cliche - but what can you do when conditions are like this?
Neist Point Sunset
A colour long exposure just before sunset. This was taken from a slightly precarious viewpoint below the upper cliffs and on the edge of the lower ones.
The Fairy Pools, Glen Brittle
My favourite wee bay on Ullswater with Autumn just starting to creep in.
Light through the Trees
A rather beautiful dawn down at Parkfoot on Ullswater. This was the test shot for a long exposure which followed. I'm not sure which I prefer...
A spot were you are sure to encounter a horde of folk with cameras and tripods. But sometimes the light is too good to just walk on by. On this occasion there was no-one else around.
Taken in the last of the sunlight coming through the bedroom window using K-5 and 100mm macro lens.
Gold and Silver
