Good Morning Everyone,
Life is becoming more hectic as we move into December and head towards Christmas celebrations and the end of the year.
At any opportunity, it is relaxing to look back at a time when the days spread out endlessly, without the threat of hustle and bustle!
This is a view of Loweswater, in the Lake District, taken just after breakfast. The view is east along the lake, with the sun beginning to make its mark, as it pierces the clouds and starts to remove low clouds from the hill tops.
The mood was so calm, so serene, no-one around and very little sound. As we watched, slowly, the hillsides on the N.W. slopes began to pick up colour.
Just a beautiful day!
I hope you have a happy and relaxed day, Bev :-)

Peace and calm is exactly what this photo evokes. You have caught the light and shadow play over the mountains very well. Brilliant shot.

En effet, un paysage de rêve. J'aime voir comment les rayons du soleil tentent de percer la couche épaisse des nuages.Le contre jour est très bien fait et donne une ambiance sereine à la composition.

The low morning lighting brings a haunting atmosphere to the scene. I like the point of view and the oblique placement of the lake or should it be mere? The partially silhouetted background hills with their rounded tops, very typical of the Lake District make an excellent focal point. Your title sums it up perfectly.
Regarding the ladies facing the wrong way; I have to say I am not particularly adept at taking candid pictures and prefer to do it surreptitiously if I can. Not very brave I know, but there you go.

marvelous countryside photo, Beverly.
beside the lake which always draw attention on photos, you managed a wonderful sun-ray coming through clouds, created a majestic spurts of light on the hills.
Lovely green, pleasent to look at such depth.

You have captured a lovely early morning scene here from the Lake District with a real moody atmosphere. Love the diagonal line the green field in the foreground creates. Lovely calm lake and spectacular mountains with the dramatic clouds just hovering above. Well executed under the early morning light.

Yep! the title says it all really. Later in the year in the lakes is always magical with less people and a chance to experience big skies like this one. A view that you could never tire of and probably different on every day of the year too! Just beautiful!

You have already described this view as peaceful and serene, so I don't know what to add. The fertile green field nearest us provides a very nice foreground, and the background shows us several ranges of increasingly hazy mountains. That haziness is part of the nice depth created in the picture.

Indeed, there's a wonderful calm atmosphere on the green fields among the lake. Well taken scene, enjoy a lovely day.

You couldn't be more spot on, what a hectic time of year indeed. With family in town now and the holidays themselves just a couple of weeks off, I could already go for some of this peaceful serenity about now. :) Great title!
A simply delightful scene this is, you've compiled a lot of natural beauty into this composition. Even without a particular point of focus, subject matter that is, not the actual precision....this is most pleasing all the way around. I especially like the soft rays of sunlight breaking through the clouds in the background, adding a touch of warmth and care to the countryside. Looks like a great place to take a nap! :)
Take good care. Friendly wishes from the desert,

I love the green of the fields in the picture. It contrasts well with the greyish clouds. But what I like best is this wonderful light. A very beautiful and very nicely composed image with a fantastic mood. My compliments!
