This is a result of a trip to Tarn Hows with too very grumpy kids and one very grumpy dad! This trip was a punishment for driving Cathy and I mad for a few days in a row last week on holiday in the lakes! So I took them up a hill and made them watch me make photographs, in cold windy weather! For those of you that have kids, you will know how stressful it can be from time to time, and this was one of those times, I can tell you!
Regarding the shot, I wanted to get as high as I could but could have done with at least another 50 meters to create a nice space around the islands and emphasise the Langdale in the distance! I also like the fallen tree in the foreground. For me at least it represents anger and frustration. I practically like the way the movement of the trees on this long focal length, combined with this 30 second exposure is different to my usual experiences. It is also nice to see the lake from up high, as I normally punish my kids with a walk around it...
