The view from Low Fell

Tuesday 18th June 2019, 1.55pm (day 2,854)

View from Low Fell, 18/6/19

Decent weather was forecast for the first time in three weeks and lo, it delivered. I had to get out and expand my horizons somewhat, and the Lake District is a fine place to expand them. This is the view from Low Fell, one of A. Wainwrights Western Fells. The lake is Crummock Water, the two big hills Whiteside to the left, and Grasmoor.

Ripples

Wednesday 9th January 2019, 12.40pm (day 2,694)

Ripples on Ullswater, 9/1/19

Another nice visual illustration of a) physics and b) that it was far too nice a day to be sat in an office. I like also the little ‘V’ to the right which, if you look closely, seems to be caused by a swan, maybe mimicking that bigger metal brother. I bet its wake won’t end up spreading across the whole width of the lake though: which the boat’s did manage.

Three have fun on Crummock Water

Saturday 7th July 2018, 11.25am (day 2,508)

Crummock Water, 7/7/18

Hard to find much to complain about today, photographically or otherwise. And certainly no need to take further shots of toilets.

Lying down tree

Saturday 18th March 2017, 11.05am (day 2,032)

Lying down tree, 18/3/17

A day out in the Lake District but as you can see, the weather was not good so I stuck to the low-altitude scenery. This is the Derwentwater, and on its west shore stands, or rather lies, this tree — perfectly healthy and seemingly not fazed at all by the fact that it has grown horizontally and now lies permanently half-in and half-out of the water. Look at the root structure, how it’s still clinging on to solid ground.

Grasmere

Monday 17th August 2015, 2.50pm (day 1,453)

Grasmere, 17/8/15

On some days you’ve just got to go with a particular shot simply because it’s exactly the picture you wanted to take when the shutter was pressed. This was one of those days.

Windermere

Monday 28th October 2013, 3.05pm (day 795)

Windermere, 28/10/13

Joe is on his half-term holiday, so these two days I’m off work doing my part of the child care duties. And I decided to take him somewhere I liked. Why not.

Newspaper editors in London might also like to use this picture as evidence that today was not, despite their headlines, the day that the ‘Killer Storm Stopped Britain’. Or perhaps they were using ‘Britain’ as shorthand for ‘that small part of a decent-sized country which is nearest to London’ — as they so often do?

The road by Seljordsvatn

Friday 30th August 2013, 5.30pm (day 736)

Road past Seljordsvatn, 30/8/13

So here I am back in Norway for a week, where, if in doubt, there’s always the landscape shot. This is the lake of Seljordsvatn, by which I was lucky enough to be spending the weekend, in the cabin of my friend Eystein and his family (you’ll be seeing him on Sunday’s pic). The lake is famed for its legendary water serpent, apparently. This is also one of the better shots I have ever taken from a moving car.
