Love of the Lakes
Please help me and support my continued journey around Britain by ordering prints of this photo!
A brief flicker of colour in the stormy sky caresses the fells as the dominating snowy peak of the Old Man of Coniston watches over Tarn Hows.
Weather forecasts for today promised a hint of sun breaking through the recent rain and snow, so Lisabet and I made our way to the popular Tarn Hows to see what light we could capture. I was delighted to find the surrounding mountains covered in a little snow, especially the Old Man. We hiked our way up Howgraves to get a good view of the area and the best chance of catching any light in the thick clouds.
Scanning around the lake, it’s amazing to see how many benches, stones, boulders and viewpoints are dedicated to long-parted people who fell in love with Tarn Hows and the Lake District in general. Nature touches us all. =)
If you like the way my photos look, I have a free HDR photography tutorial using free and open-source software, so it costs you nothing!
