Lake District

31/12/2013
Wasdale is perhaps the most scenically stunning of the Lake District dales. Facing south-west, it is also ideally oriented to catch late afternoon winter sun. I composed this image with a foreground of golden bracken and two focal points - Yewbarrow on the left counterbalanced by a rocky islet on the right. The higher mountains of Great Gable in the centre and Scafell Pike to the right are enveloped in cloud, an integral part of the Lake District landscape.
