The Lake District coast with the Fuji X-T1

When you think of the Lake District in the North-West of England, the images that usually spring to mind are of the beautiful lakes and picturesque fells.

Move across to the western side of the lakes however and you will find a quieter coastline that attracts far fewer visitors.  We visited  Ravenglass,  a village on the coast which has its own unique beauty and attractions. It also proved to be a great spot for sunsets.

The village is home to the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway and Muncaster Castle is only around 20 minutes walk away.  They also have the ancient ruins of a Roman bath house.  I’ll be doing a separate blog about our visit to Muncaster Castle shortly so this is a quick look at Ravenglass.

For all these photographs I used my Fuji X-T1 with either the 50-140mm lens or, for the wider shots, the 10-24mm lens.
