Lake District Photography

The Lake District, also known as the Lakes or Lakeland, is a mountainous national park in North West England. A popular photography destination, it is famous for its lakes, forests and mountains and unique quality of light.

Even at the busiest time of the year, once you get away from the tourist hot-spots such as Windermere, Bowness, Keswick and Grasmere, there are many quiet havens where the combination of water, mountains and sky make for outstanding landscape photography.  I favour the South Lakes and the area around Coniston Water, where the light at the north of the lake never disappoints.
