We were in the Lake District at the end of November for a few days and we were rewarded with sights of lots of snow-capped fells. We were staying in Borrowdale and took a walk down to the waterside of Derwent Water to catch the golden light hitting the fells as the sun was sinking behind Catbells behind us. It was almost 4 pm and the wonderful light looked very warm but the air was very cold. Very soon after this, the light had completely gone and we were enjoying a drink in the warmth of the hotel bar.
Stunning…just shows you, being there AND having a camera …is the art of photography!!
Thank you Paula, glad you like it.
What a beautiful shot. I’ve never yet managed to be in the Lakes at the right time to see snow on the fells and now that we live the wrong side of London the journey is even longer
I think I’m right in saying that I haven’t been there to see snow on the fells since I was 11 or 12 years old when we used to go scrambling up the hills. This visit was an awful lot more sedate than then.
