Snow has fallen in the Lake District

December 10, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Towards the latter end of last week we saw the first proper snowfall of this winter and it didn't disappoint. Now rather than babble on, this will be a slightly shorter post, mainly because I've covered quite a bit of information on this location in previous posts and in a blog I wrote some months ago. So if you'd like more detail on this location please feel free to check it out.

As you can see I have included three images below which were taken at sunrise and sunset on the same day during a workshop. The workshop was a full day and my client, Paul, had opted for a sunset as oppose to sunrise but I suggested that if he wanted to we could meet for sunrise as well to capitalise on the shorter winter day. This meant the workshop was longer than the 8 hours you'd get for a full day, but it would've been a crime not to extend it for the sake of a couple of hours and at no extra cost.

The first image is a panorama taken at sunrise where we had some awesome reflections on the water, we didn't quite get the light but this made for a great start to the day. After we made our way on to Lingmoor Fell via Birk Knott we ended up looking at the Langdale Pike from the viewpoint in the second image, a composition I've shot before but this time with different conditions. Once the light had faded and not long before we made our way back to the car park I grabbed the last shot in this sequence, which was handheld and a close up of the Pikes as the colour got deeper.

All in all a cracking day, and very fortunate to have had the conditions we did. To see some of the shots Paul took you'll need to check out the review section on my Facebook page at reviews .

The reflections although not perfect were stunning this morning on what was only a couple of days after the first heavy snowfall in the Lakes this winter. My client who was on the workshop was very happy as this was just the start of the day.
