Wastwater

By jeanie      
I had a fabulous day out yesterday in the fine company of Martin.W and we spent it up in the Lake District, starting at Ambleside and ending across the way at Wastwater.
The weather was beautiful and mild - no coats needed most of the time, and even had pub lunch in the beer garden at Elterwater.

Even the drive over Hardknott Pass was fun (!?!?!) (don't think the rug would agree though.. but he was flat against the rear window when the car was practically vertical on the climb up!)

Thanks for letting me tag along yesterday with the rug, Martin Grin

Excellent, love how smooth the lake is.
When I was in the Lakes on Monday it was windy and choppy, what a difference a day makes.
Like the low perspective.

Something of a classic shot, this, but you've handled it well with good, natural colours (it's very tempting to overdo the sunlit hillside.... Wink)

Wonderful shot Jeanie. I particularly like the clarity of the water in the foreground and the white bit of water - presumably wind - that separates the lake on the horizon. Also the colour of the light on the screes.
