Three Tarns

By dathersmith  
In 1865 James Garth Marshall built a dam to flood an area which was once three smaller tarns, the body of water in this image is the result. I took a trip up there on Sunday morning to find a tog already set up where I wanted to be so I had to have a quick change of plan. I was hoping for an image looking over to Fairfield but the sky was interesting over towards the Langdale Pikes so I decided fo point the camera in that direction. It's a while since I've done a panorama so decided I'd give it a go even though I appreciate they get little interest on here. I don't often say it but it's a pan and needs to be viewed large.

Thanks for getting this far, hope you like the view.

A quality image - very well done - and would make a fab print. If I was to be really very critical I wonder if the yellows are a little strong in the grass areas - might be worth a trying to nudge down the saturation of the yellow channel a smidge. But I am being micro picky here.

I thought I recognised that sky from Sunday morning, Darren, I've uploaded it today too- I was just a few miles away.

Lovely panoramic; striking natural colours.

Must have just missed you Darren because from Windermere I took the kids to Tarn Hows for late morning/ early afternoon & had a wander & a picnic- there was a photographer taking a shot of the National Trust guy when I parked up.
