A December trip to the Lake District

My blogs are a bit like buses, you can wait for ages for one and then two come along at once.

You may have seen my other post which was a bit of a catch up on my 366 day project but I’ve also been meaning to post a few photographs from a recent trip to the English Lake District, in Cumbria.

We stayed in Bowness-on-Windermere. In summer, Bowness is a real tourist hotspot but in winter it is far quieter and in my opinion a much more pleasant experience.

Given that it’s December we were lucky with the weather.  It was cold but it was generally sunny and that made for some great mornings. Just a hint of mist hanging above the still waters of Lake Windermere and the low sun to provide the lighting.

The clear skies also provided an opportunity for some night photography. It’s amazing how many stars you can see when you escape the light pollution of the city.

The photographs here were all taken on the Fuji X-T2 which is a great camera. In the main I used two zoom lenses, the wide 10-24mm and the telephoto 50-140mm. I hope you like the pictures.
