The English Lake District ~ Gallery 2

All the photographs in the top section were taken in the English Lake District (Cumbria) over several days during October 2003, the lower section from Easter 2004. All were taken with the Canon 300D Digital Rebel, largely using the Canon 28-135mm IS USM lens.

Please also see Gallery 1 and Gallery 3 of Lake District photographs and a page of panoramas taken in the area also.

A very still, albeit dull day at Tarn Hows.  Derwent Water from the less popular northwest shore, looking towards Keswick.  The lighting was particularly stunning when we saw the sun.  A storm brewing over Coniston.  A quiet spot to contemplate on the edge of Tarn Hows.  A stunning sky at sunset.  Ullswater on a crystal clear autumn day.  Ullswater in autumn sunshine.  Autumn leaves.  Dramatic shadows from low autumn sunshine.  View over Crummock Water to Darling Fell at the north west corner.  Autumn sun through Laurel leaves in the Aire Force Arberetum.  Kirkstone Pass and Brotherswater.  A frosty sunrise in the Lyth Valley.  A colourful sky as the sun starts to set over Windermere.  Honister Pass after leaving Buttermere.  The south end of Crummock Water, a very favourite, quiet spot of ours.  Local Herdwick sheep who live on the fells and are more hardy than other breeds.  A tranquil moment with a lone swan on Windermere, as the light falls.  Still reflections in Tarn Hows.  A passing Wren, one of Britain's smallest birds.  Yew berries taken in the Aira Force Arboreturm.  Backlit pine needles in the low autumn sunshine.  A stunning sunrise over our 'home' in the Lyth Valley.  Red deer family at sunsent in dense woodland, a very special encounter.  I had forgotten how much fun physical zoom lenses are!!  I do so love the shapes leaves make, it's easy to overlook their beauty when there are so many of them.  A brief shaft of sunlight on a rainy day.  Dramatic post-storm lighting at Crummock Water.  The opposite shore of Derwent Water facing Grange.  Exposed tree root on the shore of Coniston Water.  Partially de-saturated.

All the photographs in the section below were taken in the English Lake District (Cumbria) over a break at Easter 2004.
