Lake District Summer

Crummock Water boat

My interest in photography stems from my love of walking in the Lakes. The sheer beauty of the Lake District brought about a desire to capture it on film. As a consequence I went out and bought my 1st proper camera an Olympus OM1 if I remember. I expect I’m far from unique in coming into photography on the back of walking, especially amongst landscape photographers. Twenty something years later I still love to return as often as possible. ¬†Although it has to be said summer isn’t really the best time for photographing the Lakes, my preference being autumn and winter.

Heres a few of my favourites from my  visit last week, when I spent most of my time in the areas of Derwent Water and Buttermere.
