[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Rydal Water, which was once known as Rothaymere, is a short distance downstream along the River Rothay from Grasmere, which lies to the west. Rydal Water is a small and placid glacial lake very similar to Grasmere, and glacial deposits called drumlins have formed small islands on the tiny lake.

No public boats are allowed on Rydal Water, and, during summer months, the southern shore is a very poular spot for picnics and sunbathing. There are attractive walks around the lake, particulary that which travels to Grasmere along the southern shore past Rydal Caves. Some of the finest views of the lake are to be had from the 'Coffin Trail', a path to Grasmere used by medieval coffin-bearers, who carried the deceased beneath Nab Scar to St. Oswald's Church in Grasmere. There is also a rocky outcrop at the western end of the lake which commands dramatic views of Rydal Water. This is believed to have been one of the poet William Wordsworth's favourite places in the Lake District and has consequently been given the name Wordsworth

Hello Geof! Nice landscape. Very nice lightness. Beautiful delicate colors. Good capture. Original effect. Good luck!

Hello Geof,
A picturesque view has been captured!
All elements are there, the naked trees, the winter colours and the lines leading up the the little lake...
The landscape is well framed, the mood is well captured!

Hola Geof,
realmente hermosa vista,
bella iluminación y pov,

Hello Geoff,

I know this area quite well, it's a truly beautiful spot, and this is a lovely capture of the scene, lovely rolling landscape and colours...

Just one thing - what is that small red "blob" just in fronr of the wood? I can't make it out but my eye keeps getting drawn to it!

Lovely work - thanks for sharing.
Best regards,

Hello Geof,
Wonderful view across this valley. I love the colours and the line of the old wall leading to the lake. Nice misty effect over the hills in the far distance. Very well composed too.
Manys thanks, Ulla

Hi Geof!

Lovely place with so much colors, and great depth! Everything in place for an outstanding landscape! I like it very much, TFS

Best regards,

Hi Geof,
A very beautiful countryside photo. I like the composition where the road takes me on a journey and brings me to the lake. The bare trees, the dead ferns and the hazy air create a very warm mood. My one nit, the bright red sign/postbox at the stone wall.
