Monday morning at Tewet tarn

I got up thinking of somewhere else but the traffic had me heading North and I wanted to go back to Tewet tarn so that where I went remembering my wellies.
I needed the wellies but could have done with waders or a boat to get to where I wanted.


Pre dawn the sky was pink

The light was nice and water remained still but I have not processsed any of those shots yet.


After the sun went in I set of tovisit some other spots I dropped at castlerigg derwent water and buttermere



A couple of different spots of the shore of Derwent water

Almost painfully perfect...

The colours in the first two are to die for, and reflections the same....

Beautiful Alf, just beautiful. Difficult to pick a favourite but #1 just edges it for me. I've been meaning to get my 9-18mm out you've just spurred me into it.

Re: Monday morning at Tewet tarn

Superb.

These make me wish I lived near a lake and some hills and had the time before getting to work (in the dark these days)

I was lucky but then again the trip was based around the waether forecast hence why I am going out tomorrow morning but not the last two days

My 9-18 is almost permenantly attched to my E-M5ii for this kind of stuff but then I have the 12-40 on the E-M1 as well and use both at the same time

It would not improve anything if I told you my work patterns you know but I will say I am lucky but then I work shifts and they do not suit all.

Re: Monday morning at Tewet tarn

The second one is a touch 'cool'. No such problem with the first one though. Out of the Derwent water shots I prefer the first (#3 in the post), bottom cropped off to suit my taste of course.

Re: Monday morning at Tewet tarn

First and last for me.

The third photo is likely to start me on a rant about billing airlines for their contrails spoiling your shots.

Re: Monday morning at Tewet tarn

Your two opening shots, especially the first have the beautiful colours of opal. I envy the enthusiasm and motivation that propels you into a breaking dawn to capture such peerless pictures.

All great Alf but that first one is truly sublime. I haven't seen a proper hill for years.

The WB is rather wacky on these due to the colours of the scene it was difficut to edit them without spoiling the tones in them which are not at all the usual of how it looked shortly afterwards

If I had known I could home to Buttermere and met up for sunrise. I went to Wasdale and the sunrise was OK BUT the lake surface was choppy.

Hi Alf I also took the wife to Whitehaven, we had lunch there in the little cafe in the town centre. And I photographed the harbour lighthouses. Altogether a nice four days.
Kind regards Mike
