Morning folks, A pleasant evening on Saturday with @timdovephotography 🕊 over at Wast Water 🏔📸. Nowt amazing in terms of light but at times it was catching Yewbarrow and Great Gable rather nice so no complaints. We also think we saw Joe Cornish doing a workshop as there was rather a large group of toggers by the waters edge, and it did look like him as we zoomed in with live view from the 200mm 😂 he probably didn’t recognise us or I’m sure he’d have come over and said hello... 😂 Joking aside it was still nice to be in the company of a great photographer even if we were a few hundred meters away. Have a bonza day all 😀👋🏻 —————————————————————- #lakedistrictuk #thelakelanders #onelakedistrict #rural_love #greatgable #wastwater #thelakedistrict #cumbrialife #welovethelakes #nature_love #landscape_porn #lakelandlandscapes #countryfeatures #love_landscapes #snappingthelakes #ilovethelakes #nature_shooters #instamood #wearethelakes #britains_talent #lakesography #capturingbritain #outinthelakes #fromlakelandwithlove #weloveengland #osmaps #britians_talent #landscapestyles_gf #livinginthelakes #lakedistrict

There’s plenty of scenic spots to stop and watch the world go by in #TheLakes 🌍👀 As @thefoodellers put it, “the reality is definitely better than the imagination”, so make sure this magnificent World Heritage Site is top of your bucket list 💫

Haystacks - Lake District, UK I found this composition a couple of months back and knew I'd have to wait until midsummer to get the light to fall in the right places. Last night, @kenny.d.block and myself had another walk up to the summit of Haystacks and were met with some great conditions. Finally got the shot I'd been after. ◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾  #thelakelanders   #lakedistrict   #theplacetobe   #thelakedistrict #fromlakelandwithlove   #igerscumbria   #wearethelakes   #hikethelakes #coolcumbria   #v1sual_heroes   #capturingbritain   #earthescope #hikingthelakes #ukpotd   #ukbestpics   #lovegreatbritain #thisprettyengland   #britains_talent   #icu_britain   #uk_shots   #theearthoutdoors #everything_imaginable   #fingerprintofgod   #earthpix   #earthfocus   #ukhikingofficial   #country_features   #roamtheplanet #bbcneandcumbria

#MyForestMoment this is a peaceful tarn in Grizedale Forest. How does being in nature make you feel? Mrs Mystery says ..."Spending time in nature, particularly forests such as Grizedale & Dalby, makes me feel relaxed. My mind clears & slows down. I may feel tense, with high heart rate & a tension headache, but by the time i have finished walking, i have a smile on my face, my tension has gone & my heart rate dropped. ❤🌳🌲" For your Randon Act of Wildness today get out to your nearest Forest, wood or nearest place with a bit of nature and chill for a bit! It's good for you, we should all do it more & the world would be healthier #30DaysWild #treephotography #selfcareforhealthcare #forestbathing #forestlover #calming #goforawalk #randomactsofwildness #justgoshoot #canon #liveforthestory #liveyouradventure #LandscapePhotography #naturephotography #waterphotography #waterscape #wearethelakes #fromlakelandwithlove #reallakedistrict #keepitwild #ournaturedays_5k #1natureshot #GloriousBritain #lensloves_nature #grizedaleforest #lakedistrictphotography #lakedistrictnationalpark #thisismyadventure @thewildlifetrusts @forestryengland #igerscumbria

A relaxing weekend in the Lakes but would have been silly not to at least get a little walk in, 10km route straight out the front door of the hotel to the Outlying Fells of Brant Fell and School Knott. Just over two years since I last visited them when bagging up the Outlying Fells in 2017. View from the summit of Brant Fell over Lake Windermere to The Grizedale Forest. #amazing #active #adventure #britain #beautiful #england #getoutside #travel #instalike #landscape #mountains #mountaineering #nature #outside #healthy #hiking #photography #scenery #lakedistrict #ukpotd #wearethelakes #ukscenery #hikingthelakes #nationalparksuk #visitbritain #ukhikers #thisismyadventure #fromlakelandwithlove #ukhikingofficial #thelakelanders

Dawn breaks on the villages of Patterdale and Glenridding, running alongside the upper region of Ullswater. This shot was taken from the walk up to Place Fell. The 3:30 start was well worth it to get this incredible view to myself, with an incredible stillness in the air. I hope you like this one:) . . . . #lakedistrict #theplacetobe #WeAreTheLakes #fromlakelandwithlove #ukpotd #uk #nationaltrust #ukshots #uk_shots #instagram #instagood #instagoodmyphoto #justgoshoot #peoplescreatives #exploretocreate #passionpassport #ig_undog #awesome.earth #theoutbound #livefolk #wonderful.globe #theworldshotz #discoverearth #wonderful_places #discoverglobe

The sun made its first appearance during its sunset tonight, peeking out the sky for about 15 minutes and then disappearing. But as it was raining, it created this great rainbow that went right over to the other side of the universe. PS.

_A BOAT TO AN ISLAND ON THE WALL_ . . . A little bit of surface mist and a nice singular boat were inviting me to whip out the long lens for a shot where the lake still stood in shadow. I think the image gives a very tranquil feeling, a longing for the simple life sitting by the lake and watching the water ripple. . . Elsewhere there was some really beautiful morning glow, so I have plenty of shots to share In the near future! I would say Ullswater is my new favourite Lake, just because the mountains around it are so close and impressive, compared to the flatter profile of the land around Windermere and some of the other southern lakes. I was really hoping for a cloud inversion from this spot, taking into account the clear sky and lack of wind. The 3:30 am start up Place Fell didn't quite deliver the epic sea of cloud as I might have liked, but I definitely got some really lovely light on the mountains. . . . . . . #lakedistrict #theplacetobe #WeAreTheLakes #fromlakelandwithlove #ukpotd #uk #nationaltrust #ukshots #uk_shots #instagram #instagood #instagoodmyphoto #justgoshoot #peoplescreatives #exploretocreate #passionpassport #ig_undog #awesome.earth #theoutbound #livefolk #wonderful.globe #theworldshotz #discoverearth #wonderful_places #discoverglobe

Morning all, So I was hoping to bring you something new yesterday after I paid a visit to Helm Crag last week at sunset. Unfortunately I came away empty handed for a number of reasons, but it was still good to get the exercise and get operation ‘shed timber’ underway. That said, I didn't bother posting Monday morning and took a chance on being able to get out yesterday evening, which I'm pleased to say worked out well. The image here is one of a broken birch tree which many of you may recognise as this once stood proud on the fell and was the subject of many images, but sadly mother nature gave it one last beating it just couldn't handle and this is the result. However it still made for nice foreground interest on this occasion. Have a cracking day all 😀👋🏻 ————————————————————— #lakedistrictuk #thelakelanders #onelakedistrict #rural_love #langdalepikes #holmefell #thelakedistrict #cumbrialife #welovethelakes #nature_love #landscape_porn #lakelandlandscapes #countryfeatures #love_landscapes #snappingthelakes #ilovethelakes #nature_shooters #instamood #wearethelakes #britains_talent #lakesography #capturingbritain #outinthelakes #fromlakelandwithlove #weloveengland #osmaps #britians_talent #landscapestyles_gf #livinginthelakes #lakedistrict

When your scone is so ridiculous you have to eat it with a knife and fork 😂 I had planned to try somewhere new for cake in Ambleside but as Simon didn’t get to try the famous Blueberry Scone at @waterheadcoffee on our last visit it was only fair ❤️ And can anywhere really beat this spot? Treats by Windermere watching the fluffy cygnets right by our table! This is how you do Mondays! ⛵️

Cat Bells may be one of the easiest climbs but I’m so chuffed we went on our first ever proper Lake District walk this afternoon! 🥾⛰ The views of Derwent Water were something else! I’m really keen to explore some more now and I’d LOVE any recommendations anymore has for lovely places in the Lakes to visit that have nice walks, pubs and tea shops but without quiet so many crowds 🍺🍰 Is that even a thing!? Maybe somewhere in the North Lakes so not so far from Newcastle! Help! Im so clueless 🤷🏼‍♀️

Blea Tarn Happy Sunday everyone! Andrew @andysj11 with you today, I hope you’ve had a good week. ****************************************** As I’m travelling back from my jollies today, I’ve chosen a bit of a throwback from a couple of years ago. This shot of Blea Tarn is one of my favourites from when I started taking an interest in photography & although it is much photographed, its magical reflections still draw me back! As I’m sure you know the tarn is easily accessible from Little or Great Langdale with a NT car park a hop, skip and a jump from the Tarn itself. ****************************************** As ever I will be keeping an eye on all your images posted with #thelakelanders during the day and I’ll be back with tonight’s feature later. Until then, have a good one! ****************************************** #landscapephotography #lakedistrict #scenicbritain #theplacetobe #wearethelakes #ordnancesurvey #getoutside #thegreatoutdoors #landscapelovers #hikingthelakes #igerscumbria #explore_britain #genuinebritain #Bestunitedkingdom #ukscenery #lovethelakes #ukpotd #GloriousBritain #EnglandsLakeDistrict #WalkingUK #YourShotPhotographer #nature_brilliance #landscape_captures #awesome_earthpix #photosofbritain #fiftyshades_of_nature #instabritain

Spirits are lifted! Since moving down I’ve always wanted to do the Great North Swim! Was well worth waiting for to be able to do it with @mcggn I loved doing it with you, and so proud of you! Swim buddies all the way! Sadly I didn’t get to do the full mile cause of severe weather conditions but would have done several laps if I was allowed! Our distance was just short of a mile and we did it in 28minutes! Gonna smash it next year! My next challenge is to swim with @mcggn to bouy 14 and back with @danny.mccullagh sporting! Well done to all the others who did it this year, especially @dan_jephcott and the others from @treetoplakedistrict thank you @teenage_cancer who I was swimming for, if you can please please please donate here https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/treetoptrek I would be happy to swim, run or cycle for you guys again in the future!
