Landscape Photography Adventure in the Lake District - Part 3

Over the last couple of weeks, I have shared with you part 1 and part 2 of my Lake District photo adventure.  This week it's the 3rd and final part.  I only photograph one location, but as you'll see, it's probably the best one of the entire trip.

If you watched part 1 and part 2 you'll know that I didn't have the best of luck with the weather.  For two days I had grey, flat light, and while I was capturing nice images, they just lacked the dramatic light that I know the Lake District can produce.  Then, and I'm not joking here, the light broke through the clouds in the last 15 minutes of my adventure.  I was just about to pack up and leave as I need to get back to my hotel to check out when all the action happened.

As long as I could go away with one great image I would have been happy.  It just happened that on this trip I needed to wait until the very end of my trip!

Overall I had a really good time in the Lake District.  While the photography was challenging at times, it was also a lot of fun.  As is often the case with these trips the enjoyment comes from more than just photography.  I'm a big fan of the outdoors, so just being outside and wandering about some of these great spots and locations is a wonderful experience.  I also met some great people on my adventure.  From fellow photographers, hill walkers, and even a fell runner.  I guess I like to talk as much as I like to take photographs!

I hope you enjoyed this three-part blog and vlog on my recent Lake District adventure.  I'm already making plans for more adventures next year, so remember to stay tuned.
