Wastwater Colours

By AlleyCatz
Good morning...Its a chilly & frosty one here.

Spent a few days with Wooly in the lakes. Although we had torrential rain,gales,flooding and lots of closed roads to navigate around...we did manage to get one good day of weather on Monday. We went over to Wastwater and the autumnal colours were beautiful.

Thanks for stopping by Smile

Think this image would possibly benefit from a large view....Thanks Smile

C&C welcome.

Lovely landscape, from a personal point of view I wonder about darkening the grass area at the bottom to separate it a little from the water...

Nearly passed this thumbnail over. Glad I did'nt its a brilliant shot, and the quality of the large version is superb. The composition with the trees in the foreground leads the eye into the pic. and I particularly like the light on the water in the middle distance.

Wastwater was on my list of places to visit on my day in The Lakes, but the flooded roads put paid to that Sad Good to see this instead though, as colour, depth and composition are all fabulous Smile
