Wastwater Delight by Capturing-the-Light Wastwater Delight by Capturing-the-Light
Another shot of my favourite place on earth. The wasdale Valley in Cumbria englan is home to Wastwater Lake, the deepest lake in England, ringed on three sides by glorious Lakeland Fells. With every second of the day the scenery changes before you like a constantly evolving canvas as the sun and clouds cast their light and shadows upon the fell and water.

for this photograph, I processed in photoshop cs5, then into nik hdr pro, where I used the single photo setting then tweaked the end result in the same programme. Not to everyones taste I appreciate, but on this occassion I was drawn to the result and put it up to hear the thoughts of others as to the effect.

To everyone that favourites any of my work, please accept in advance my sincere thanks for doing so. For those that comment on this or any other photograph, you will always recieve a reply. Demands on my time may mean a delay on occassions in responding, but I will always reply. Thank you for visiting this page, the support of all visitors is truly appreciated. Simon

Interesting that Wasdale is still your favourite place in spite of living amongst that amazing New Zealand scenery, Simon.

Belated thank you for that very generous offer Simon,that`s awesome of you buddy.
One of my brothers is planning to do the Coast to Coast walk this summer so I may well go and do the Lake District stretch with him :camera:

No worries Jonathan, you should join your brother for the lakes part. If I remember rightly I think starting from cumbria end is from Robins Hood Bay. If you look up bit torrents for downloading online etc, you will find there is an edition of wainwrights walks, that covers specifically the coast to coast walk with the great man himself. got a copy here somewhere in a box!!
