  • Mist in the lakes

    Well it was rather serious fog. When I got up all could see was blue sky but then I looked out of the font of teh house and could see fog si decided to go out.



    I was going to go to Latrigg but went to the top of newlands pass and I got this but I reckon catbells would have been better

    I moved around a little after that and I bumped into another couple of photographers along the way one who was in this area at Buttermere who also shot these cobewebs

    The mist cahnged so much as the sun started to show there were shots all over the place these are just what I have had time to process

        A great set which captures the natural abience beautifully Alf. I like all the shots of the mist but I especially like the second image in the second set with the tree against the sky.

            That first one really does it for me, Alf. An absolute corker, and delightfully subtle.

                We're on the verge of booking up for next year's trip to the Lakes - probably Braithwaite again

                      Beautiful sets of images Alf, and No.1 just keeps drawing me back in and the more I look the more I see - stunning and all are a perfect demonstration of what the Olympus can deliver in skilled hands.

                      Inspiring and a visual kick in the a..e to me to get out and shoot some landscape - thanks..............I think!

                            Beautiful Alf, especially the first three. Can't beat mist and low sun for atmosphere!
