Dow Crag. Goats Water .Easy Gulley. The Lake District

Exploring easy gulley on the side of Dow crag I found these rocks shaped in a finger and thumb formation creating a window with a view over towards Coniston water. The sun was in front of me which meant the rocks were turned into a silhouette in the photograph. The sun was lighting up part of Coniston Old Man lighting up half of the scenes which helped to add a little bit of contrast. If you look closely, you’ll see a couple of people down on the track.

The Road Into The Lake District

This is my favourite section of road when I’m coming home from the motorway as it makes me think of the road into the Lake District. This is the view from one of the bridges over the High Newton bypass. As we got there the sun was starting to set behind the Lake District mountains. From here you can see the Coniston range and the surrounding fells.

A snow capped Coniston Old Man lit up by the moon light

The forecast was for a clear night so I decided to do something different and head up to Coniston Old Man to photograph the stars. I climbed up in the last of the sunlight watching the sunset over Goats water and then climbing the rest of the way by moonlight.

There was a light coating of snow on the last quarter of the walk, by snow I mean ice. Once I got to the top I realised that the photograph that I wanted over Dow Crag wouldn’t work as the gap between the top of the mountain and the stars was too big, plus there were too many clouds. Instead, I had a look at the view leading up to the top of the old man. The moon lit up the ground leading up the top and the Cairn stood out on the Horizon.

Coniston water was glowing from the moonlight to the left and the sun was setting on the right. It wasn’t the view I had in mind but this was a lot better. Everything lined up at the right time

A snow capped Coniston Old Man lit up by the moon light

I wasn’t sure where to go so I posted a couple of questions onto my Instagram story asking what people wanted to see

Sunset or Stars ?
On top of a mountain or at the beach ?

Sunset shadows on a remote th century farmhouse. The Lake District

I climbed up here to watch the sunset but I got distracted by this old farmhouse. The track curving around to the farm plus when I first got there the sun was hitting the trees putting shadows on the building. It was “too nice” then though so I picked out my spot to come back to for when the light was right. The picture in my head was a black and white image with the bright track contrasting with the shadows plus to emphasise how remote the building is.

As I was making my way off the fells then the sun was low in the sky putting the shadows back onto the barn as well contrasting with the moodier sky completing the scene.

Herdwick Sheep Walking Up Dow Crag

Herdwick sheep walking to the top of Dow crag as the clouds roll over the Scafell range. I wasn’t expecting there to be any clouds on the climb up but the closer I got to the top of Dow Crag the more clouds appeared.

I spotted these sheep as I got close to the top and you could see the Scafell range off in the distance so I crept up and got this photo of the sheep making there way to the top

Fishing in the fog. Coniston Water

An early morning on the East side of Coniston water, I was looking to get a photograph of the pier in the fog but when I was there I spotted these fishermen waiting on the edge of the water, occasionally casting the rod out into the water. You can see the silhouettes of the Coniston range off in the distance

I stood on the pier looking back over towards the fisherman waiting until they cast out again. I liked getting the little bit of movement in the photo with the bend in the rod

Dow crag with the Isle of Man in the distance

Stood at the top of Coniston old man looking towards the Isle of Man which fits in the gap on Dow Crag. This is the clearest I’ve seen the view from the top of Coniston Old man. I liked how the shape of the Isle of man sticks up above the sea in a similar shape to the gap between Dow crag and the hills behind. It’s like the Island was taken out and flipped over.

The sun had started to go down so there was a faint glow in the sky as it sets to the right of the Island. The low light turned some of the closer fells into silhouettes simplifying the foreground

Walking Along Dow Crag Panorama

Looking over at Dow Crag from Coniston Old Man as the sun was starting to set. There was a cloud inversion which filled the sky as far as you could see. I spotted a group of people making there way over the horizon with little stick figure silhouettes standing out on top of the hill in the clouds occasionally. I waited until some of the people were in a gap so that they stood out and then I got there silhouettes standing out.

Cloud Inversion Over Coniston. Panorama From Coniston Old Man

I climbed up onto Coniston Old man with the idea of going to the mines to photograph them in the clouds,  I didn’t really think that through though as I climbed up the wrong side of the mountain past goats water and up Goats Hause.

At the top, I met a man who had set up a radio and was talking to people from all over the world. We got talking and I ended staying at the top for the sunset which also coincided with a cloud inversion. The clouds surrounded us leaving a cloud inversion over Coniston and Low water
