Light trails on Coniston water. The Lake District

Stood on the edge of Coniston water on a cold December night watching the stars reflecting in the water and above the surrounding fells. Occasionally a car went down the side of the water lighting up the shoreline and the trees so I set up the camera and waited.

During the day this is a relatively busy road but when you sat there in the middle of the night waiting for a car they seem to be pretty rare. Fortunately one eventually came and I managed to time it right and the car lights lit up from where the car entered the scene and then once it got to Coniston

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.

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

Light trails on coniston water

The forecast was looking promising for a sky full of stars plus there were no clouds in the sky during the day so I packed the bag ready for if everything lined up. Coniston is my usual place to go as there’s not too much light and the views are great.

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

Reflections On Coniston Water. The Lake District

We went to Coniston water to watch the sunrise, but we soon realised that we’d got it all wrong and sun was going to go down behind us. We stayed anyway as it was a frosty morning and it felt like the light was going to be nice. The water was still so the reflections of the surrounding fells were popping out of the water. The clouds had taken on some of the colours from the sunrise, and they looked like they were crawling over the fell tops which still had some snow left clinging to the tops.

Low Water Below The Clouds On Coniston Old Man

Looking out over the cloud inversion from Coniston Old man, Coniston and Low water were under these clouds. On the climb up it didn’t look like there would be any view as I was surrounded by clouds. It all changed at Goats water and the sun started to make an appearance.

The higher I climbed the nicer the weather got. This changed my plans I was expecting to go to the mines but instead, I stayed at the top to watch the sunset. The clouds returned as the sun went down filling the sky behind Dow Crag and over Coniston. You could only faintly see the track leading to Low water and the slightest of blues beneath the clouds

Coniston Steamboat In The Footsteps On Coniston Old Man

Coniston steamboat making its way up the water surrounded by the Coniston Fells and the trees

This was a new find for me. I parked the car down by the water’s edge and spotted a path leading up through the trees, I grabbed my camera bag and followed the path. It wound up through the woods and eventually leading up to a small fell on the side of Coniston Water. From here you got a view over to Coniston Old Man and Dow Crag.

There were a few boats going up and down the water so I picked my spot and waited for a nice one to come by. Fortunately, the ferries were running and it went on the path I was hoping for, the hills look huge compared to the boat

Brocken Spectre Over Goats Water. The Lake District

I wasn’t sure which hill to climb between Coniston old man and Dow Crag so I flipped a coin and went with Dow Crag. The plan was to catch the sunset over the crossroads looking out over the bay. It was quite a promising start as there weren’t any clouds in the sky.

As I got to the last stretch the clouds rolled in, which did help to add a bit of atmosphere. This soon changed into being completely surrounded with no views. I waited at the top for a little while clutching at straws on what to do. Fortunately, my stubbornness paid off and the sun broke through the clouds. A brocken spectre appeared above Goats water. It was awesome, I’ve never seen one of these before
