Normally when I take images in the mountains I know exactly what I am looking at. But I have to confess that as far as today’s images are concerned, I’m not sure what these peaks are. That’s the problem with an archive that could be better organized. And so if any UK photographers can help out with the identification, I’ll be very pleased to hear from you! What appealed to me at the time, and still does, is the warm late afternoon light in these images on a calm Autumn day.
The facts that I recall are that they were taken from the Kirkstone Pass in the Lake District on the way over into Patterdale, in the afternoon, six Autumns ago. They were shot in the order shown here and about 11mins apart – we must have stopped at least twice on our journey over the pass. I am pretty certain the peaks in the first image were on the south side of the pass, and I also think the lake in the second image is Brothers Water.
Winter months bring out the Hibernator in me and it’s a time for tackling indoor tasks. I’ve been getting to grips with CS5 and OnOne Perfect Photo Suite 6 recently (I realize I’m rather behind the times with both those programs). I’ve also being trawling back through the Archives, which is how I re-visited these images.
So, suggestions please from anyone who may know this area of the Lake District better than I do.
