A Look At Lakeland (1 of quite a few)

AT THIRLMERE WATER 4/7

As promised yesterday having started to follow the footpath back to where we had parked our car at Thirlmere Water looking back was this fine view over towards Armboth Fell and the mountains beyond, with one of the little islands in the lake in the centre.

I like the sheen of the water through the middle of the image!
Brian Walbey: We were lucky that the sun was in and out and it has caught the water very nicely hasn't it.

The water has a shining quality that contrasts with the wooded hillsides

eco friendly area
Brian Walbey: Eco as a natural phenomenon Chantal, other than being a man made lake it is all as nature intends it to be, not being messed about by the hand of man.
I admire how visitors to the lakes remember what all the bits are called. Fine picture Brian
Brian Walbey: So do I Bill, I have used two different maps to identify the mountains I have named in the series, hopefully correctly with Messrs Frank, Alan and Richard being very familiar with the whole area.

Oh, what a beautiful photo - with all the branches! Now I see so many branches and tasks on the ground, cut down by the tree doctors or fallen down by the Great Storm.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine. I guess the fallen branches are mainly as nature intends them to be.

As I mentioned I am enjoying seeing spring in these shots. I also enjoy imagining the area in other seasons from shots I have seen on SC over the years.
Brian Walbey: Going by what I have seen elsewhere in books etc., the Lake District offers wonderful photo opportunities in Autumn and Winter.
Wonderful views all round Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet.

I hope you did not trip over all that firewood Brian.
Brian Walbey: No I was leaning over a wall to be honest Chad, no where near the branches.

You don't have to go far from your car for good pictures here, Brian
Brian Walbey: You certainly don't, although it would have been nice to have had a chance to walk a bit further away from the road.
A superb view Brian! Very nicely framed.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
This is a nice woodsy Hallowe'en Day view.
Great in all its moods
Brian Walbey: Thanks John.
A really peaceful scene, Brian. The little path to the left looks so inviting.
Brian Walbey: Isn't it just. Under different circumstances no doubt we would have strolled down the little path but with all our luggage in the car in a lay-by we didn't want to stray too far.
Glorious!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
