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.

Curious Cows Behind The Gate

I was exploring an area of the Lake District I hadn’t really been to before called Broughton mills. At the start of the walk, we passed through a field full of horses and cows, and then up onto one of the surrounding hills to take in the views.

On the way back down we went through the field again and the cows followed us and waited at the gate, they were pretty curious with big eyebrows. Maybe they thought I was the human that brought food. I liked how some of them could see clearly and others only had one eye with a view over the gate

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 ?

Mist rising behind the canadian geese as the Herdwick sheep walk down the track. The River Brathay

It was a calm and peaceful morning at the river Brathay near Elterwater. The water was still, the mist was rising and you could see a faint reflection of the trees in the water. And then the Geese arrived. Just by looking at them you could tell they were about to swim down the river and into the frame.

I thought this might be the end of the photos in this direction but I stuck it out to see what they did. It was quite nice to get some wildlife in there. After a little while, the Herdwick sheep in the fields decided they were going to move to a different field and they walked down the path 1 by 1. It framed up nicely as they were spaced out

Early morning mist rising over the frosty grass. The River Brathay

Stood on the side of the river Brathay near Elterwater waiting for the sunrise. The mist was rising over the river and slowly rising and going over the fields. I liked how the big tree stood out as well as the remains of the fence posts by the water’s edge. There was still the remains of the frost from the night before, it soon thawed out as the sun came up but it added a nice layer of frost onto the ground to make the image look as cold as it felt.

I waited watching the mist to see if it was going to get thicker, eventually, it rose up a bit higher flowing over the fence post on the edge of the river adding some atmosphere to the photograph

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.

Autumn on the river Brathay. The Lake District

The sun was starting the break through the trees as it was rising giving a glow to the Autumn trees on the edge of the river Brathay. The Herdwick sheep were walking around in the field behind the tree, completing the Lake District landscape scene.

Once the sun was a bit higher it lit up the side of the two big trees on the edge of the River BRathay casting their reflections into the water. There was no wind so the water was like a mirror with no waves or ripples adding to the calmness of the morning. The sheep walked from the river’s edge between the trees and then up to where I was stood for better grazing
