............but get there early to claim your space because it gets very busy at these locations.

Or use a long exposure to eradicate those troublesome togs!
Have a look through Vintagered's portfolio, or PM him, he has been my guide on many occaissions round the lakes, he is very helpful.
I have some shots of both surprise view and Ashness bridge, I can confirm that they are great locations. I also like Bassenthwaite Lake. I have never been but there are also some superb shots from Wast Water (Mike H springs to mind). Try putting a search in on the gallery.

The slate mine museum on the Honister Pass is a great location - some great stuff to see and buy in the museum and a fantastic view right down a valley from the car park, I managed to get this there... link

Wherever you go, you'll have a great time and you'll be surrounded by beauty everywhere you look!

Remember to take out a loan too - the locals will fleece you for every penny you have.

If your looking for something a little different you could try going to Tewets Tarn, its a little tarn not far from Keswick, will be deserted and has a great view of Blencathra Link to google maps - example pic

I like the passes best - Kirkstone, Wrynose, Hardknott and Newlands all afford fantastic vistas and given the right light, never fail to impress.

Capturing the scene is the challenge

I got a few of Kirkstone on Friday and Honister yesterday - honister got lovely light, clouds moving making for ever changing patterns.

Didn't have any trouble last time I was up there of an evening. The traffic was very light and there were loads of places I found to shove the car in.

Is that just by the side of the road? I have never managed to find anywhere on the passes that wasn't a passing place.

I am pretty sure there are spaces at the top of Hardnot, I had no trouble stopping in Wrynose bottom either, they might have been passing places..not sure now but there was so little traffic it didn't upset anyone.
