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.
