Autumn in Keswick

By bazhutton  
I had spent a few hours shooting on the banks of Derwentwater capturing the explosion of autumn colours, and my natural inclination was to try to avoid the many tourists in the shots. However, I noticed this walker approaching in the red coat and waited until she was approximately a third of the way into the shot before pressing the cable release. I knew that the slower shutter speed would create some blur, giving the walker some movement. I think she adds to the scene and makes it more different and interesting.

Thanks for looking

I like it. Have you tried it with most o the sky cropped off, potentially that may look good.

I agree about cropping the sky a bit, but is still a beauty. Have always liked this view back towards Keswick, most of mine have sheep or geese in them though, the movement works well.

But I like the blue! And a good space for text.

Seriously though, thanks for commenting.
