A photo taken in the English lake district, this is a view looking over Grasmere.
Grasmere at 1 mile long, half a mile wide and 75 feet deep, would be an attractive and popular tourist area even without its Wordsworth connections. 'The most loveliest spot than man hath found' was Wordsworth's famous quote describing the area of Lakeland that he most loved.

Love the way you built this one up. The angle is superb, with all the different elements well positioned and leading the eye towards those lovely hills in background. Excellent light management too, which greatly contributes to the shot in terms of color and atmosphere. TFS! Have a good day, I'll be seeing you.

I notice a nice property background enjoying a magnificent view over the lake. Nice framing elements on the foreground that calls for relaxation. Good management of light and colors. Well done Wilson.
With all my friendships and a very good end of the day

Hi Wilson, Nice place, photo inviting to just sit here on this bench and observe boat or to take the boat and lazily go to the other side. Nice colours although the weather was not so good.
danos (101760) 2009-03-25 12:24
nice and calmly this landscape view with the lake in your feet.I like the resting boats in the wooden jetty and in the bank of the lake too,as the wooden bench that someone can seat and to admire the Nature.Well done.

Tranquil and nostalgic mood of this beautiful place with attractive composition. Several beautiful details are discovering on the photo. What has influence on me mostly is the calmness streaming from the landscape. Beautiful shot. Have a nice day!

A lovely and relaxing bucolic scene, wonderfully composed and very attractive, despite the dull weather. That bench, table and boats seem to be waiting the arrival of sunny days of Spring to be filled with joyful people enjoying the place.

Maybe the season is not the right to enjoy this place fully, but IO can see the attraction during summertime!
The empty bench tells the story of wet and cold days, but spring is coming up with lots of outdoor activity...
A balanced composition with a fine feeling of depth!

belle photo de ce lac avec cet endroit ou l' on peut voir ces barques qui servent aux touristes.
Jolies couleurs, belle coline au loin qui donne une bonne profondeur de champ.

un endroit très calme et trsè nature. Reposant.
Le ciel est un peu surexposé et c'est dommage. Les couleurs sont un peu effacées.

Hi Wilson. Nice photo, good FG to entice the eye into the scene and the boats and lake round things out beautifully. Nice work and thanks for sharing.
Have a good week, Paul.

Bravo et amitié

Ciao Wilson, beautiful composition with lovely bench in FG, wonderful light and colors, very well done, ciao Silvio
pierrefonds (69759) 2009-03-30 4:32
The reflections in the water are assets to the composition. The point of view leads our eyes toward the mountain in the background which is giving depth to the photo. The bench in the foreground is an invitation to enjoy the scenery. The cloudy sky is filtering the light which is giving a good contrast to the colors. Have a nice day.
jlbrthnn (76039) 2009-03-30 6:43
There are not always the ideal conditions to make photographs, but the desire for making them persists. Framing is pleasant. The bright colors of the boats are a counterweight with the greyness. Good performance.
Have a nice day
AROBN54 (11475) 2009-03-30 7:20
Really nice shot. Excellent composition with the bench and boats in the FG and I like the bit of bright color they add. Wonderful depth, nice sharp detail and I like the quiet, sort of lonely feeling the absence of any people give it. Everything just works perfectly and I especially like the nice balance to it all. Very well done! Many thanks and warm regards,

interesting a small harbour at the lake. Nice view and place for resting. Good documental shot. I like it.
UlfE (14641) 2009-03-30 12:11
A really fine composition. The bench and table in the foregroung gives a wonderful feeling of presence. They also works well as a lead in to the boats at the jetty. A very attractive picture. TFS and have a nice evening!

Hi, Wilson. Grasmere and its famous gingerbread. But what I prefer is the fells! There is a good contrast between the water and the fells. You do not show too much of the sky, which I think was rather grey on that day, so that's a good choice. On the other hand, I think the foreground is a bit cluttered here. I think I would have moved a little to the right to focus more on the colourful boats and get rid of the bench and the grey boat (but that's only my opinion).
Have a nice evening,
PJE (20758) 2009-03-31 22:02
Wilson I would imagine that this location above many others would bring solace and tranquility. I have to say congratulations to you on this photo. Even though I would prefer to capture this setting in much more dramatic lighting, the capture here does have a merit on its own. Thanks for sharing Wilson. Happy Spring to you.

I love the silence and the peace of this beautiful place...I can imagine the lake with people enjoying the serenity.Nice vivid colors on the boats gives a little contrast to the well composed frame...
siolaw (38292) 2009-04-02 2:19
The English weather didn't help you but the contrast level and colors are quite pleasant, and the scene and compo interesting and well balanced.
The place doesn't seem too busy at this time of the year!
jemaflor (101267) 2009-04-03 4:11
Well taken, a good angle to show us this place, interesting view well composed.
jhm (157838) 2009-04-06 4:38
This is a place in summer for a break on the bench with a good cup of coffee.
Splendid area with the lake and mountains in background
Composition and presentation are very nice.
Very well done, TFS.

Beautiful springtime scenery with the foreground leading the eye beautifully towards tranquil lake and lovely hills in the distance.
Clear natural colors and fine sharp details to this lovely image.

Attente de la haute saison touristique, une table vide sans pique-nique, pas de maitre nageur, et en arrière fond toujours les tons d'automne,un endroit au repos avant le rush.
Très parlante cette prise.

Un banc au bord d'un lac près à accueillir les amoureux qui viendront admirer le paysage et se conter fleurette (flirter...). A mettre dans mon thème...
La lumière très douce donne une ambiance très apaisante!
