Lake District before lockdown

Lake District - Holly

I was recently lucky enough to visit the Lake District with my camera for a pre-planned break before the current lockdown. I have never been there before and found the scenery quite breath-taking. Here is a selection of my favourite photos from the trip. I felt that the dramatic countryside was stand-alone extraordinary!

Now that I’m back home I can enjoy contemplating the tranquillity and revisiting this wonderful place through the photos. 

Aira Force – a 70 ft waterfall; the image cannot convey the powerful sound of the crashing water. When the sun shines it makes a rainbow in the spray.
Loughrigg viewpoint – with a near 360° panorama, Wordsworth considered this one of the loveliest places in the lakes. The incongruous clump of daffodils references his famous poem.
Mountain view – taken from near Aira Force towards ‘High Street’; Ullswater is in the foreground but obscured by trees. The snow-sprinkled mountain contrasts with the darker coniferous forest.
Wastwater – an iconic Lakeland view that you can’t get tired of looking at.
Tarn Hows – one of the prettiest places in the Lakes; no blue sky just dramatic reflections.
