Good Morning Everyone,
We are already beginning to feel the chill of winter, in the Northern Hemisphere, so it's lovely to see photographs we took which rekindle memories of warmer times.
This shot was taken, only a month ago, in The Lake District. It shows Loweswater Lake and a hill (not sure of its name) which was dressed in its autumnal colours. This view is facing N.E. across the lake.
I just love how the farms and cottages fit so snuggly into the landscape; they never compete with the scenery for dominance, they just are part of the scenery.
Have a lovely Sunday,

The place looks really nice and beautiful and I'm sure that people who live here must be happy a lot! The warm autumnal tonality made the scene attractive and eye-catching due to the very well executed saturation and contrast. Well done!
Have a nice Sunday!

Bonjour, chère Bev,
Paysage étonnant et très agréable à contempler. La mise en image est originale.
Couleurs douces d'une saison automnale.

A splendid capture of the Lakes at their best. Good use of the framing tree to give the image depth and to point toward the flat topped hill, which makes an excellent focal point. The light is very appealing and the colours attractively warm. A very pleasant reminder of warmer autumn days. It is quite cold here today, about 4 degrees, but dry and sunny. Walked into town this morning to buy some bread and have a cup of coffee, a good excuse for getting some exercise:-)

Good morning Beverly,
Agreed on the beauty of the farm houses mingle nicely in the rural landscape, a part of it as you said.
Nice green pastures and the rising hill beyond, as the water divided the area where you were standing, gave yet another scale over.
Fine managed the light and colors, depth and clarity.
Enjoy the rest of Sunday,

Beautiful Autumn landscape with nice pastel tones. I like it!
Have a nice Sunday,

attraverso le tue foto si ha una bella visione del trascorrere delle stagioni in Inghilterra, con la vegetazione che poco alla volta volge le sue colorazione verso i toni più bruni della auytunnale, ora che il ricordo dell'estate appare sempre più lontano.
Sempre piacevoli questi soggetti, dall'aspetto calmo e gradevole e sempre ben racchiusi in composizioni molto ben fatte, alle quali concorrono immancabilmente luce, colori e gradevole nitidezza.
Ciao e buona domenica

iconic Lake District this. You describe it and captured it so beautifully, and with the first tinges of autumn it takes on an even more serene and magical presence. Text book composition and an enticing irresistible presentation.
Enjoy your Sunday - B.
Cold down here too - we were promised the best autumn for colours for over 50 years and to be honest it has been a real disappointment here in W. Sussex. Good to see you have still have some leaves on the trees. B.

Hello Bev - A calm countryside scene with the buildings looking quite settled in the landscape and as you note they do not vie for attention here. The Fg foliage brings the viewer into the shot and adds the depth and immediacy that benefits the scene. Have a lovely Sunday Rosemary

I like the use that you have made of the foliage not only to make a good frame but the use of the shadows to create FG interest.
A nicely composed photo of the spectacular Lake District.
I`m reliably informed that it was minus 5 degrees here last night and judging by the icicles I can believe it.
Kind regards Les.

La rivière traverse la photo en une belle diagonale et sépare bien le paysage en deux. La maison est superbement intégrée au paysage comme la petite maison dans la prairie. La lumière forte est bien gérée.

Warmest wishes, Barbara

A splendid landscape and impeccable composition, I like the POV, image, leaving the fore the open prairie, after the lake and then giving perspective, peppered with a nice mountain woodland, with these autumnal colors.
Very good image quality, the lighting is also ideal.
Very good job.
Have a nice Sunday.

What a beautiful and peaceful view from the Lakes, taken in rather better weather than we are now experiencing just a month later than when this was taken!
With my usual "sleuthfulness" (if that is a word), I think that this is Low Fell or even Darling Fell though i think that is actually to the left of this picture, darling. Have a look at this rather fuzzy picture from Panaoramio which would appear to have been taken from pretty much the same spot as yours!
A beautifully and pleasingly composed photograph with lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness. That collection of white buildings just sets it off wonderfully.

A very beautiful and attractive landscape view. Could this hill have been a volcano? There are many hills of this shape in the volcanic region of Auvergne in France. Still a very good and interesting picture.

Hi Bev, lovely view of this beautiful landscape, very well composed and captured in this beautiful picture. Interesting picture with good sharpness, depth and quality. Nice job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this good work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

this is such a beautiful view here. I like how you have framed it with the silhouettes of tree branches and their shadows on the ground as well. The colors of nature are so diverse here with the hill adding a brownish autumnal tone. Even the surface of the lake changes from the white through black to blue. Very well spotted. I really have to visit Lake District again.
