A Look At Lakeland (1 of quite a few)

AT THIRLMERE WATER 5/7

Just two more landscape shots of Thirlmere Water before I show something slightly different on Sunday. As we walked past a tree on the way back towards the car I glanced to my right and saw this picture which really caught my imagination. It’s one of those you either love or hate, so I won’t be upset if it isn’t to your liking.

It is very much to my liking, Brian...especially bottom left where we are among the roots and mosses.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.
Oh I love it! It's very much like a fairyland!
Brian Walbey: One can imagine the fairies dancing under the tree, or am I being soppy in my dotage!

This tree is very poetic in its shape Brian. I can just see Wordsworth sitting there saying, 'I think Iv'e got another one'
Brian Walbey: Perhaps he did Chad, he wrote more than one poem.

What a fine composition! It must be an old tree while looking at its mossy roots!
Brian Walbey: Yes those roots give away it age.
Nice framing with the tree
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal.
Looks fine to me Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill.

Spring leaves, mosses and rock fences - what's not to love.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Mary, all part of the lovely Lake District.
There is a lot for the eye to drink in and appreciate here, Brian. You were fortunate not to have missed seeing how lovely it was and were able to capture it so well, especially with the tree branch framing the scene.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Beverly. I just saw this as we walked by and thought it made a good picture.
Brilliant shot Brian, I love the natural framing!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin.
It's certainly to my liking,Brian,good to see a new view of this lake.
Brian Walbey: I'm pleased to hear that Frank, this just caught my eye as we walked past.
And I love it with this framing and light Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, the light was very good at that time. I've just thought, you do a Saturday morning walk and this series was our Saturday afternoon walk that day.
Beautifully framed by this wonderful tree, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Pauline.
There is nothing not to love in this picture Brian... the lake framed under the tree and part of the stone wall around the field fill the frame perfectly....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter, that's just how I saw it before I took the picture.
I think a close-up of the bottom left might have been interesting smile
Brian Walbey: Oops I missed out there didn't I.

Works for me, Brian. It would not be quite so good with the trees in fuller leaf.
Brian Walbey: Yes a full leaf load would certainly block more of the background out.
I like this Brian, for me more interesting than expected viewpoints.
Brian Walbey: Thanks John, a bit less like a calendar shot.
Very nicely composed, Brian, with a lot of interest.
