The Best Views In The Lake District
I have given each location guide a difficulty rating to give you an idea on what to expect.
This is more of a walk difficulty than about the photography
Things that you will see at the location or on the walk up to the location.
The Lake District offers a wide range of subjects which make for great landscape photographs. Use the “Things to see” filter to fine tune what you want to see.
E.g. Mountains, Woodlands or Lakes
If you are going to go out walking in the Lake District you need to be prepared with your navigation.
I use OS Maps as they don’t run out of battery.
Navigation is an essential part of hiking in the Lake District. I use a map and a compass to navigate as they don’t rely on batteries and they always work.
You can find locations by OS map, E.g. I have the South West Lake District OS map. Coniston Water, Blea Tarn and Wastwater are locations I could photograph
Wainwright’s and Outlying fells in the Lake District
Hiking in the Lake District and bagging Wainrights are two things that seem to connect a lot of people.
If you’re wanting to bag Wainrights whilst your out walking in the Lake DIstrict fells, I have tried to link up all of the possible ones you could bag whilst you’re out walking.
plan your walk based on where you are staying
Choosing a location to go and photograph can be difficult. A lot of the time the limiting factor is where you are staying and what is local to you.
Using the “Nearest town/village” filter, you can find locations that are relatively close to you
