Named after the nearby Yew Tree Farm, this is a very pretty tarn right beside the A592 between Skelwith Bridge and Coniston. There is a layby on each side of the road, and a footpath runs around the tarn. Yew Tree Tarn was created when the valley was dammed in the 1930s by James Marshall, who also created Tarn Hows, half a mile east. This small body of water is stocked with Brown and Rainbow Trout, for which this chap is fishing. Yew Tree Farm became Hilltop for the film 'Miss Potter' and was once part of the 2,500 acre estate she purchased in 1929. I shall photograph the farm at some point, named after a 700 year old Yew tree which blew down in 1896.

Gorgeous image with its three distinct bands of tones, each broken up by occasional patches of contrasting colour (both leaves and grass starting to turn) or shape (ripples). The timing is perfect, the loop of the fishing line is just delicious.

I love the way you have balanced the fisherman with the flower, wonderful composition. How many shots did it take to capture the line during casting.
This is what makes photography for me. You could put fifty photograpers in this field and all would come up with a different interpretation of the scene, but this would take some beating.

Many, many thanks for the votes and comments in this.
In answer to Gwyn, I only stopped here for about five minutes when the sun came from behind some clouds. I think I have only two shots of the fisherman, this being the first before a closer shot.

nice shot, the balance is good and the cowparsley makes a good stopper on the left,

Hi John,

Wow! To have caught the fly in mid cast is impressive! Great location and image. When was this taken? How is the foliage looking there in Cumbria about now? I'm worried that our wet, cool summer will mean rather modest Autumn colours.

Cheers!

Bob G.

Thankyou Bob Smile
Was taken around this time last year, the trees are starting to think about changing colour, but have taken a battering from the wind these last few days. If we have a little warm spell for a week or so, think the colours will be fine here. A few rust colours are creeping onto the fells already, fingers crossed it shall continue.

We stayed at Yew Tree Farm for a week many years ago when I was 11. At the time, the farm didn't have electricity, even though most of the UK had it. For us it was quite an adventure. Each morning my brother and I would walk up trough Glen Mary to Tarn Howes. A truly fantastic area.
