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
