Dusk over Elterwater

Following on from my previous post from Langdale as I headed home I could see the mist rolling into the Langdale valley and as I approached Elterwater I decided to stop and watch for a while. Sat in the boot of my car I made this image of the Herdwicks heading for bed.

Catbells is well regarded as a family friendly Fell in the Northern Lake District. Popular with families based in Keswick, this moderately sized fell offers a great half day walk for everyone. Great views over Derwent Water and Keswick to the East and the Newlands Valley with Causey Pike and Crag Hill to the West.

Haystacks and the High Stile Ridge

Haystacks Summit

The Western Lake District is one of the most naturally beautiful parts of the Lakes in my view. Its quieter and less touristy than Keswick, Ambleside and Grasmere.

Fix the Fells Exhibition Stand

Lake District Photography Exhibition Stand

Following on from my previous post about my continued support for Nurture Lakeland and Fix the Fells. I’m pleased to share with you a photo of the exhibition stand used at the Excel in London. It’s great to see my pictures printed almost life sized. Feedback from the event was great and the use of high quality imagery certainly pulled in passers by.

The image used on the display stand was taken from the Summit of Lingmoor Fell looking over the Langdale Pikes and Bowfell with the Mickleden valley below. You can find out more about this location and see other similar views on my Lake District Landscape Photography website.
