River Brathay

Autumn on the river Brathay. The Lake District

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

From the River Brathay you get great views up and down the river. If you come on an early morning you can often see mist rising from the water.

In the distance you can see the Langdale Pikes which offer up some photographic opportunities, as you can get the reflections in the River Brathay
