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. Buttermere and Wasdale are the main villages in these areas and great bases for several magnificent walks in this area. Continue reading “Haystacks and the High Stile Ridge”
Following up from a previous post regards Kendal College using one of my Buttermere Prints for the cover of their new Restaurant brochure, the brochure is now available here in PDF format. You can find more info regards the College and the restaurant here.
A recent survey has concluded that several iconic views in the Lake District have been voted best views in Britain.
The car company Chevrolet carried out the survey with 1,000 adults contributing.
Les Turton from Chevrolet said, “It is really great that more and more people are appreciating and acknowledging everything that our own country has to offer us. There is a wealth of beauty on offer to everyone within the UK and we only need to hit the road to find it.”
Again proof that the Lake District is regarded as the most scenic place in the UK. My collection of Lake District Photographs includes all the places in the top 10. You can visit my Lake District gallery by clicking here or specific examples by clicking on the locations above.

Here it is. The biggest print I’ve ever done. 90×30 inches or 7.5 x 2.5 feet or 2.2m x .75m. There’s a good story behind this print too, the lady who’s bought it for her Hall in Kendal is redecorating especially to match the colours of this image. I’m going to photograph the installation when it’s complete.
