When it rains in the Lake District it really rains. That’s why the Lakes are full, usually. And today the lakes are overflowing, the meadows around them are flooded, the roads in places are flooded too. It is wet.
And although the camera has managed to capture some images, I came away this week with a few images up my sleeve from a previous visit, so I didn’t have to spend time every evening processing images and being a general pain in the neck to my dear wife with my head buried in a computer all the time!
So, as cookery problems often say: Here’s one I made earlier!
This is a very well known spot in the Lake District called Tarn Hows. It lies to the West of Lake Windermere and not far from Hawkshead and the Sawreys. Those places being famous for their association with Beatrix Potter the author of the Peter Rabbit books, and who will be well known to English readers with children and possibly others overseas too.
As you can see the weather was not brilliant on the day this image was taken either. Autumnal fog was present, but it was largely dry. Fog however is a classic feature of Autumn, or Fall, and sometimes the way it isolates the nearer landscape and obscures the distant landscape enables some features to achieve a prominence denied to them when, in good weather, the foreground is overlaid upon the background. Not all weather is bad, it’s a question of adapting the way we view the landscape.
