[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another Lake district posting, taken from the south bank of Grasmere on a chilly slightly damp day - the rain set in about 10 minutes after this shot!

Tweaked ever so slightly in photoshop - contrast, hue and saturation just to give it a slight boost, but it's just a calm serene scene that reminds me of the simple pleasures of life outside the work routine!

Wonderful shot! I particularly like the composition and the beautiful gentle colours. Beautiful misty landscape beyond the water.

well positioned horizon beats the mirror on the wall cliche...good lighting and making me think its time to blast up the M6 again soon

Bonjour Doug!

Félicitation cete prise de vue est magnifique et très agréable à regader.


Hi Doug,
This photo screams tranquility...mmm, that might sound a strange. Anyway, the feeling I get looking at it makes me relax. The colors are nice ans subtle and fog adds a great feeling to it. Lovely refelction and a very good composition.

Beautiful scenery!
Im so happy to see a fellow landscape photograph here on treknature. I love your pictures, and Im from now on a fan.
This picture is great in detail, sharpness and also in light control. It can be difficult takin a picture against the light such as this, but youve mastered it well.
