River Brathay. The Lake District

A short walk from Elterwater brings you out on the River Brathay. Here you get some great views over the water and up to the Langdale Pikes. This is one of the places that got me into landscape photography.

There’s a path that follows the edge of the water which gives you a slightly different view as you walk through some trees and on the water’s edge
