John and I took at trip to the Lakes on Friday, and ended up on the shores of Lake Wastwater. After a delicious picnic of rose wine, ripening brie, olives, sundried tomatoes, german breads, and an assortment of chorizos, salamis etc, finishing with a great selection of fresh fruits, we thought - we really ought to take some shots.
Twas another Grand Day Out.

As always Thanks for Looking

Well composed, nice detail in the foreground and lovely contrast between the cool and warm tones.

A super composition and cracking colour tones Chant. Creative composition with superb foreground imagianative dynamics, colour and textures. Chocolate box? Yes! I think so. (Probably the only thing we didnt have on the menu lol. ) Wonderful.

Mmmmm can taste all those flavours all over again, lol Tongue

You certainly know how to enjoy yourselves when your out toggling, plus the inclusion of some good images too, I'd agree a grand way to spend a day out.

Gorgeous light, detail and clarity and I like the way you've composed this Chant. Just goes to show that landscape photography doesn't have to be all shivering in a freezing field at 4.30 a.m - although that can work too Smile

This is one truly incredible shot, Chant. The light is simply exquisite and the rocks in the foreground just go PING!

Saying that, I'm a foodie...and the picnic you had toootally rules the moment Grin Especially that brie and the cured meats...ohhh...
