LAKELAND MIST (27/02/10)

Got up to a beautiful day, fetched the paper, had breakfast, did the crossword, that’s the important jobs out of the way. Decided to take the launch trip around the lake, hop off take a waterfall picture or two, hop back on and walk home via the market.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  We arrived at the ticket office and yes the launch was running, they had some rather nice Victorian postcards but decided a quick colourize would be cheaper. The ferry cost the thick end of £9.00, so that was lunch on the back burner.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Lakeland Mist. Already to convey us around the lake.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA       A smashing lake it looked.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA      Still a bit icy in patches, it didn’t sound as if it was improving the propeller either.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA      The woodland on the west side of the lake, this is hopefully tomorrows walk.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA       This one is Ortonised, not quite enough. Maybe far too much!! Either way I don’t like it!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA       Cloud over Skidaw, we never did get to stop at the bottom of Derwentwater, so no waterfalls. The ice was too thick, so back home. Disembarked, (sounds as if I’ve just arrived from New York, not spent an hour on a ferry), we headed for the market. There is a good selection of local meats and cheeses, pity we didn’t need anything. On we pottered by the lake heading for the truck.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA       The afternoon was starting to get pretty gloomy. This picture has been gloomed a bit more by dodging and burning.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA     Just me being arty, I can never use large apertures to the same effect that I so admire in other photographers work. I keep on trying…………I know……..Very trying!!

I will try and get a couple more Who Dunnits, sorry How done it’s posted before Monday. Now it’s supper time.



  1. A lovely lake, so beautiful are the mountains over the lake. And, with the last two are really, really nice.

  2. Looks like you had a good crowd to see you off at the quayside in the first.
    A beautiful looking lake Adrian, and the last 'arty' shot works for me.

  3. Bob, it is a grand spot but discounting geese and mallard surprisingly short of waders and water fowl.

    Keith, yes a good crowd of endangered Mallard!! Have to polish up on shallow DOF, should use live preview but it hammers batteries.

  4. Thanks for your visits to my blogs. You asked about copying my style in the banner. You are welcome to. It is just way overexposed images.

    And then it is made to fit the blog template size.

    I like the lake photo very much.

  5. Thanks Abe, will try and find a suitable image to manipulate.

  6. Well done Adrian. I have run out of images and you are here churning them out....make it count while you are at the Lakes the perfect place for landscape photography.

  7. Trevor, thanks struggling here a bit, it's time to move on, will probably give Windemere a look while things are relatively quiet.Ideally I like to post half a dozen on the day they were shot, keeps me on my toes. I look back on some days and groan but that's life.
