Landscape photography in the Lake District
Be prepared to venture off the beaten track in
search of some truly inspiration shots and always check the weather
before hiking up into the fells and mountains of the Lake District.
And when you have had some beautiful photographs to remind you of
one of the most beautiful places in England, be sure to preserve
your work in a quality
photo frame before giving it pride of place
among the many landscape photographs on your living room wall.
The Lake District in Cumbria is famous for its lakes and fells and
is one of the most beautiful parts of northern England. The area has
inspired artists, poets and photographers for generations, and every
year, millions of visitors come and explore the spectacular lakes
and mountains that make up this stunning landscape. Some parts of
the Lake District are bustling with tourists at all times, but away
from the busy towns of Keswick, Windermere and Ambleside, there is
much to inspire the keen landscape photographer, although some of
the more photogenic spots in the Lakes do require a bit of legwork
One of the reasons the Lake District is so popular with landscape
photographers is the ever-changing vista—seasons come and go, the
light changes, and no one location looks the same two days running.
In the winter, snow caps the fells and the mountains are starkly
beautiful; in the summer, nature paints the landscape with a myriad

Where are best locations for landscape photography in the Lake
No matter how many times you visit the Lake District, you will
always find a new view to capture with your camera. The landscape
changes continually, which is one of the reasons many avid
photographers come back to the Lakes, year after year.
The juxtaposition between mountain and water is one of the main
attractions of the Lake District, and many of the best (and most
photographed scenes) take advantage of fell and sky reflected in an
expanse of glassy water—Blea Tarn is a very popular locations that
features on numerous postcards of the area. Loughrigg Tarn,
Derwentwater, Rannderdale and Martindale are other popular locations
all worth a visit.
Hike up into the fells and you will be afforded some fantastic views
across Derwentwater and Ullswater, particularly in the soft light of
early morning when mist floats above the water. There are also
plenty of waterfalls, bridges, crumbling dry stonewalls, and fields
of buttercups and bluebells to photograph, and many of the more
remote locations and smaller lakes are well worth the time it takes
to reach them.
It's a long way from the Lake District but Australia has some world class landscape photographers too. Surely, these photographers can offer you the best services that you can find in the area.
