I love a going on a landscape photography adventure! Don't get me wrong, I'm very lucky to live in the south west of England. I've got easy access to two national parks and more coastline than I could ever photograph. Every now and again though you need to spread your wings, push your photography and get out there and visit somewhere different.
Earlier this year I had a fantastic adventure in Glencoe so I was keen to go on an adventure for autumn. But where would I go? Well, there aren't many better places to go in the UK for autumn than the Lake District.
I had given myself two and half days of photography in the Lake District. In that relatively short time, I had a list of locations that I wanted to shoot. These were a combination of locations that I had marked on my custom Google map over the years, some from my previous visit last year, and some from the excellent book Photography the Lake District.
As with my Glencoe adventure I knew I wanted to record my time at the Lake District using both photographs and videos. So in the next few blog posts not only will I be sharing with you the images that I captured but I've also created a 3 part video series so I can share the story behind the images.
Part 1 - Buttermere, Ashness, and Ullswater
Here is part 1 of the video in which you will see me photograph the lone tree on Lake Buttermere, Ashness Bridge, Ashness Jetty and Ullswater.
I hope you enjoyed the video and the images I captured. Here are the images again if you want to see them in a little more detail.
I hope you enjoyed part 1 of my Lake District adventure. I will be publishing part 2 next week so you won't have long to wait!
