A Look At Lakeland (1 of quite a few)

BASSENTHWAITE 1/2

To the Northwest of Keswick is Bassenthwaite Lake which is one of the largest water bodies in the Lake District. It is long and narrow, approximately 4 miles (6.4 km) long and 3⁄4-mile (1.2 km) wide, but is also extremely shallow, with a maximum depth of about 70 ft (21 m). We only had time to stop for a short walk along the shore at the North-Western end of the lake, parking at an area called Ouse Bridge, and unfortunately it had turned a bit dull by then., so I only took a few pictures, this one of an old tree in the water catching my fancy as we walked past.

Love the sense of scale & distance here Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes, being at the very end of what is a long lake it gave me the chance of an uninterrupted view.

Plenty of Cumbrian ingredients in this.
Brian Walbey: Including pointy type mountains.
Just like an eye to lead to the nice perspective Brian! Well done.

The shadows from that root will provide a place for trout to rest. Beautiful shot, Brian. You have a great eye.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary, a bit of luck really, we hadn't planned to stroll along this lake just there.
Looks like the tree tried to go walkabout Brian. Lovely setting
Brian Walbey: Indeed it does Janet, i wonder how long it will last in that condition.
It makes a fine foreground for this picture Brian
Brian Walbey: I just couldn't avoid taking it Bill.
Hang on there! but I feel It's days are numbered
Brian Walbey: Indeed Martin, still I got a reasonable photo from it before it is no more.
