The Lake District

We have just come back from a wonderful photo trip to the Lakes. It was very beautiful with the many colours of autumn, rich and misty. The varied light enabled us to try the many colour and Black and White settings with our Fuji X series cameras .

I used mainly the velvia setting making misty colours richer and the black and white setting with a red filter giving more contrast and good control in the clouds and skies.


The Lake District

We concentrated on ancient sites with standing stones like Castlerigg  outside Keswick, waterfalls near Ullswater water and lake reflections around Derwentwater.  Castlerigg had a dusting of snow to make it special.

It was a special trip, to this special place.

We are just thinking of the poor people suffering the flooding in Cumbria, their third in the last few years.
