The Lake District has to be one of my favourite places. The weather wasn't great and I was forever dashing out of the car when a patch of blue sky appeared but we had a wonderful time regardless. This is the edge of Crummock Water..we had just finished walking around Buttermere and the sun decided to come out from hiding ! I am trying to adventure into the realms of images other than flowers but I think it will take some time. Wishing you all a good week. Smile

Very natural light and tones, the hint of haze. Plus portrait used to do what it does best, lead the eye meandering gently from foreground through to horizon.
But then you know I quite like square too... Wink

Hi Di Trust you are well too and enjoying all that spare time (I am sure it is as busy as ever for you). This must be your annual landscape upload I guess? But from the sounds of it a genre we will see you venture into a little more. Anyway lets look at this one first:

Well the light didn't bring much to the party, did it - so you had to work with a rather dull and flat backcloth - but nevertheless this is good. I actually like the mute colour balances and the watery tones (in fact victorian 'lakeland watercolour' springs to mind).

Good stuff.

Very best wishes

Robert
