Grasmere Lake 2/5

The lake is 1680 yds. (1540 m) long and 700 yd (640 m) wide, covering an area of 0.24 mi² (0.62 km²). It has a maximum depth of 70 ft (21m) and an elevation above sea level of 208 ft (62 m). The lake is both fed and drained by the River Rothay, which flows through the village before entering the lake, and then exits downstream into nearby Rydal Water, beyond which it continues into Windermere.

I think I might be inclined to borrow a rowboat, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Some people did go out later in the day.
A lovely landscape photo - those boats and the white house beyond are perfect in your composition!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth, it is a nice area.

Love the treatment on this one.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bonnie.
Grasmere is one of the loveliest parts of the Lake district, Brian.( Except in the middle of summer.)
Brian Walbey: yes we thought it was really nice, but being July, summer, the place was crowded with visitors of course.

I suppose this place gets busy in the tourist season, but you have managed to evade all of that
Brian Walbey: It wasn't the nicest of days and being July it was busy but most people stayed in the village.
A gentle row on the water would be very agreeable Brian....as long as someone else was doing the rowing
Brian Walbey: My feelings entirely Bill.

This is a fine photograph Brian with lots of interest. I do like the wa6 the light has caught the ripples on the water.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad. The water has come out very well.
What a lovely view, Brian. Imagine having that to look at everyday from your window. Lucky people who live there.
Brian Walbey: There are several large houses in their own grounds along the narrow road at this side of the lake, they do indeed have a beautiful of the water and the mountains beyond.

A splendid scene. Did Mrs Walbey row you around the lake whilst you admired the scenery?
Brian Walbey: Sadly she didn't Alan. This is taken from the grounds of that tearoom you mentioned before, we bought ice creams to keep the proprieter happy!

gorgeous shot, Brian. worthy of being blown up and gracing a wall.
Brian Walbey: Thanks veyr much Ayush, it was just a shame it was quite a dull day.
A place to relax, perhaps with a fishing rod.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Claudio, I am not a fisherman but my son is and would love to spend a few days fishing this lake I'm sure.
