The beauty of the Lake District

A few more from the visit at the beginning of the week.

I'm not really a landscape picture taker, but I hope I've managed to capture the beauty of the place with these. 

I'll kick off with a hill.

The rest are Ullswater.

And I'll finish with a bird.

 The Dipper

Enjoy the day.

I hope the sun is shining where you are. 


  1. Hi Keith..it is so beautiful.you photos look great ..the lake looks so inviting. Is it a water supply or can you take a dip in it or does the "Dipper" only have that privilege!!
    I could hang out there for awile for sure!!
    The sun is shining here; you have a great weekend. Hugs!!

  2. I recognize this place.......good work and the dipper is a beauty.

  3. ITS beautiful there!!! SO glad to see its NOT developed that is what makes it so awesome.
    I got a feeling you will be returning to this great place again--

  4. the pine tree island is my favorite.

  5. I'm not sure about the lake grammie. I guess you could swim in it ok.

    Thanks Adrian. I miss it already.

    Sondra, you could be right. I'd love to go back sometime.

    Texwisgirl, thank you. I quite like that one too ;)

  6. Made me wish I was there sooner rather than later.

  7. Wow, I like it and this special atmosphere! I should visit GB next year I think. But now I wish you happy easter and send hugs from Luzia.

  8. Beautiful photos...I love that area!

  9. Wonderful scenic shots Keith and I really like the low angle. My daughter & grandson used to live in the lake district and I never tire of seeing it.. such a beautiful part of the country.

    And the dipper..... my "much wanted" bird...
    Glad you had a good time :D

  10. Hi Keith,
    The Lake District is a truly spectacular place, which your photo`s capture perfectly! I am extremely jealous of your trip!
    Follow me at HEDGELAND TALES

  11. Wow what a finish!!! Great job on this nice dipper shot Keith, but let me tell you something, you are quite good at landscape and should do that more ;-)

  12. Beautiful place, and beautiful photos, Keith.

  13. Duh? Your landscape shots are very nice. Love the reflections in the lake. Happy Earth Day!

  14. Great landscape stuff Keith and the Dipper is top notch

  15. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!

  16. Beautiful set of pictures Keith. It's a great part of England, the last time I was there was about six years ago. :-{

    Maybe next years holiday is being planned already!

    Super Dipper shot btw. Do they still 'dip' when they stand on one leg?

  17. That made quite a change from your usual haunt Keith. Lovely peaceful scenery with the added bonus of a new bird.

  18. Cheers Frank. I'm sure you'll have an equally good time. A fantastic place.

    Thank you Lucy. Have a great Easter too; and if you come to England, give me a call ;)

    Thanks dAwN. It is a beautiful place.

    Tricia, it is a beautiful place. The Dipper was a special encounter for me. :)

    Thanks John. Great company in a great place.

    Chris, thank you. Maybe I should try landscape more often :)

    Thanks Horst. A wonderful place. :)

    Thank you Jean. I want to go back already lol

    Bob, thank you. The Dipper was a great poser. :)

    Nicole, thank you :)

    Thanks Trevor. It really is a spectacular place.
    The Dipper certainly 'dipped', and I managed to watch him while he searched for food under water. A great experience.

    Pescalune, thank you. It certainly was beautiful. The campsite was in a wood, with a stream too. Perfect. ;)

    Thanks John. Very different to my local, and very enjoyable.

  19. Truly a special place. Your photo are wonderful.

  20. love the dipper and the lakes are great aren't they? have you been to Bassenthwaite to see Osprey and if you're lucky Red Squirrel on the feeders at the observation point

  21. Beautiful images of a lovely part of the world.
    I have walked all the tops you show.
    Great post.

  22. Pete, it is a beautiful part of the country. Only stayed at Ullswater for a few days, but I'd love to go back sometime. No Osprey or Red Squirrel this time.

    Andrew, I can only imagine how breathtaking the view must be from up there. It would certainly take my breath getting up there lol

  23. Beautiful photos as usual!
    That must be one great piece of nature!
    Thanks for giving me another glimpse (I am so sick and tired of all the construction around me,... :( )

  24. Looks like a beautiful journey!

  25. Seem's like a very nice place. I really love the 4th image..and the bird ;)

  26. Thanks Nicole. I'm glad it gave you a break from all the concrete :)

    Sarah, it was excellent. :)

    Thank you Dominic. A lovely place indeed.
