Lakeland Panorama 4/7

SEATOLLER

Deep in Borrowdale, just before the entrance to the Honister Pass, is the small village of Seatoller. We stopped there for a short while hoping to find a tearoom, to no avail, but I did take an opportunity to put this panorama together. Again I’m not as conversant with Lake District names as Alan and Frank, but I do believe the heights directly in front are known as Rosthwaite Fell. [6 shot panorama]

Seatoller is only a small village so I didn't take many shots, but having taken the panorama above I selected just a small part of it for the shot below featuring the hotel set below the mountains of the Borrowdale area.

Fine pano, again, Brian.

It looks a little cool, today?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray. It was one of those typical days in The Lakes, sun, cloud, a bit of rain, I just made the best of the conditions at each place we stopped at.
You didn't disappoint me with this perfect panorama and by adding the first frame below it Brian... well done....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter, I'm glad you like it.

Wonderful photos! - sadly, I have not been there - oh, I wish I were there now, but I'll go to England this weekend, to the cathedrals...
Brian Walbey: Perhaps one day you will go there Philine, in the meanwhile I hope you really enjoy visiting our wonderful cathedrals. the itinerary you sent me looked very interesting.

That's a berautiful image Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris.
A fine view Brian, the trees are just waking up
Brian Walbey: Thanks Marin, our late Spring getting under way.
I have noticed that you spend a lot of your time in pursuit of tea rooms Brian. I think you are missing an opportunity for a series smile
Brian Walbey: What a grand idea Bill, even when we go out from my club on summer Sunday afternoons, usually with our wives, we aim for somewhere with a tearoom that hopefully serves cream teas!!
i am seeing and hearing a lot of lake district and so far, i have enjoyed every bit of it. great panorama here
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush, it is a beautiful part of our country.
Nice shots with a nice light. My camera club's challenge is a panorama for next month. I have never done one but will ask you about stitching if I have a problem.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary. I didn't know you also belonged to a camera club, have they got a website you could give me the link for. My Club is at http://www.shepshedcameraclub.co.uk/ should you fancy a look at our gallery some time. I use Photoshop CS3 for panoramas but there is a very good free program at http://www.serif.com/free-panoramic-photo-stitching-software/ which i have also used before.
pure nature
Brian Walbey: Indeed Chantal, and a lovely part of our country.

The hunt for the elusive cream tea continues.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Chad, we didn't quite make a cream tea this year but did find some very fine cakes here and there!!
Excellent panorama, Brian! What a lovely setting for a hotel location. Would love to spend a holiday there.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Beverly. There are a lot of hotels like this set amid the splendid scenery in our Lake District, available to stay at at a price of course!!
A wonderful light in both pictures Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
very nice panorama Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Juan Carlos.
A drive or walk in Borrowdale is always nice,Brian,well captured.
Brian Walbey: Yes we enjoyed the short while we spent there, indeed we found the lovely little church at Stonethwaite, and the church, and tearoom opposite, at Grange later in our travels. Very much to my liking as you will realise.
Looks like a nice quiet spot for a weekend away.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Tom although I would imagine one would really need to enjoy walking the hills etc.which, sadly, is not too easy for Maureen and me these days.
Good place to visit out of the school holidays as it is deservedly popular.
Brian Walbey: I can imagine that John, indeed there was a school party busy walking while we were there.
Beautiful shots Brian - you're a master at these multi-shot panorama's!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth. I just took the shots, not on a tripod which one is supposed to do, and the panorama option in Photoshop CS3 looked after the rest.

There's a pub there which seems to have very erratic opening times and they will do teas. Rosthwaite has the "Flock In Tea Room" http://www.borrowdaleherdwick.co.uk/tea_flock_in.html.

Borrowdale is a beauty; a classic Ice Age valley.
Brian Walbey: I remember learning the geology of Borrowdale during our school trip in 1960 as that was the purpose especially for our GCE Geography/Geology exams. WE didn't find that tearoom but did find the Grange Cafe, with a lovely little church opposite, and also the church at Stonethwaite as well, right up my street as you can imagine.
A pleasing rural view, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes we thought that when we stopped there for a while Graeme.
