Another photo taken from the same area as my last posting, with the view looking across Gresmere,
Grasmere is a charming village right in the heart of the Lake District National Park in Cumbria, England. Within easy reach are the honeypot towns of Ambleside, Keswick, Hawkshead, Coniston, Bowness and Windermere.
Grasmere lake lies to the south of the village around which there are some gentle walks for those that prefer the lower ground. For those that prefer a greater challenge, in Grasmere you're centrally situated for taking on the craggy peaks of the Scafell Pikes, Helvellyn, Skiddaw and the Langdale Pikes.
Grasmere was once the home of the famous poet William Wordsworth; today you can visit two of his former homes - Dove Cottage and Rydal Mount. Also in the centre of Grasmere is St. Oswalds Church, the churchyard of which contains the Wordsworth family graves.
I DEADICATE THIS PHOTO TO Philippe Schillings FROM BELGIUM, AS THIS IS THE SHOT THAT HE DESCRIBED IN THE CRITIQUED HE OFFERED TO MY LAST POSTING.

i like this amazing landscape. the touch of colors are nice with this boats. I like the peacefull atmosphere you get in this picture
mark_mk (266) 2009-04-09 12:50
even if weather wasn´t too good here you managed to get a wonderful image! The boats in the foreground look great and same goes for the ducks on the right hand side, which is a great detail. Looks like a typical Britain landscape, very nice!
Keitht (1292) 2009-04-09 14:08
A wonderfully moody image, so typical of the Lake District. You've done well to hold the detail in the cloud. The boats provide good, bright foreground interest, whilst the white building in the background still draws the eye into the picture.
COSTANTINO (54463) 2009-04-09 14:26
A peaceful place necessary for everybody to have a walk there..The two boats give a particular tone to this shot,good pov with
soft lights and attractive detailsregards
Fransx (1457) 2009-04-09 15:12
What a cool and soft panorama! The three different coloured boats adorn your capture and increase impact to the beauty of this shot.
Well done. Regards.
Floydian (30970) 2009-04-09 16:13
I like the scenery, it brings a nice peaceful mood inside with those boats in front. Strange names they have ;-)
Light was not your best friend here, it could use some sunshine or an extra boost on the colour saturation, but the scenery it self is really nice. Never been there, but the place looks very inviting...
gunbud (34066) 2009-04-09 20:29
Wonderful strong natural colors and a stunning reflection to the foreground boats with beautiful subtle spring time scenery in the background.
Looks like a very tranquil setting for a peaceful boat ride.
Graal (96783) 2009-04-10 0:11
an interesting place, nice view with the boats on FG. Peaceful atmosphere. I like it.
Gerrit (47488) 2009-04-10 1:13
Interseting names fort these boats.
Excellent composition and appealing landscape.
gildasjan (41550) 2009-04-10 2:58
La couleur de ces barques apportent la note de couleurs qu'il fallait à ce paysage sous le temps gris.
Photo65Net (43120) 2009-04-10 3:27
Nice catch !
Despite the grey weather, you caught beautiful colors, nice job.
Have a nice day,
rodgerg (55767) 2009-04-10 3:31
A very pleasant view full of serenity, of peacefull. The colours of the three boats in the Fg arise very well. These boats in the FG give a great prospect to the hill in the BG. Composition well balanced in differents plans. The two ducks give an interetsing element of life.
Have a good WE,
snunney (82547) 2009-04-10 4:15
A beautiful well composed scene. The foreground boats bring a sense of depth as well as adding a splash of colour to offset the unkind sky. I like the overall range of tones. Very good sharpness.
Budapestman (82620) 2009-04-10 4:28
Peaceful and nostalgic atmosphere with beautiful composition and soft colours and lights. Picturesque mood, indeed, charming details. Congratulations. Have a nice day!
fulvio52 (8314) 2009-04-11 1:42
Your latest was excellent, this one in my opinion is even better. Once again you made great use of the available light and carefully built up another lovely composition. It all looks extremely well balanced, with those brilliant colors upfront counteracted by the green in the distance to provide great depth of field and overall visual interest. Good job! Happy Easter, buddy. I'll be seeing you,
Cricri (105303) 2009-04-11 2:17
Un paysage ou le calme est bien présent, j'aime la couleurs des différentes des barques qui resort super bien dans un temps plutôt gris, belle image
Very good weekend
guytoc (3614) 2009-04-11 14:41
Good evening Wilson,
A peacefull landscape indeed !
The yellow and orange boats in the FG contrast perfectly with the blue-grey (great!) of water and give a real depth to your composition. Job well done. TFS.
Happy easter in England.
danyy (0) 2009-04-11 23:17
tu n'avais pas les meilleures lumières, mais un challenge à réaliser, rendre l'atmosphère grise et terne de la scène. Et apparement tu l'as fait avec beaucoup de fidélité.
Une scène tranquille très séduisante.
Have a great sunday,
bracasha75 (24517) 2009-04-11 23:24
Very nice plesant place with this nice colorful boats
Very good angle of shot
Happy Easter Wilson
Philippe (11836) 2009-04-12 0:31
Hi, Wilson. Thanks for the dedication. It makes me blush. Ad yes, this is really what I was thinking of when I commented on your last picture. The boats offer a good colourful foreground giving a good depth to the image and contrast well with the dark water and the fells. Very nice scenery.
Happy Easter to you and your family,
bakes888 (18499) 2009-04-12 2:31
Hi Wilson. Great photo, very tranquil with the boats and ducks quietly bobbing on the calm waters. The rings of ripples give this scene just enough movement. Nice work and thanks for sharing.
Hope you are having a good Easter WE, Paul.
PJE (20758) 2009-04-12 5:36
Wilson Happy Easter to you. I trust you are enjoying today. This second photo in this series is a little more appealing to me than the previous one. Lovely balance and composition here and nice added color with the boats.
danos (85785) 2009-04-12 9:25
a nice and calmly scene with the boats to be anchor in the wooden jetty.The houses of the village complete the scene.Well done.

Ciao Wilson, beautiful and peaceful compositon with lovely boats, very well done, Happy Easter, ciao Silvio
UlfE (14641) 2009-04-12 11:56
A very crisp shot. I love the simplicity. The diagonal line and the colourful boats make the scene very, very attraactive. An excellent photo-job. TFS and have a nice evening!
gracious (20025) 2009-04-12 18:27
Thank you for sharing such charming scenery from the Lake! so calm and peaceful atmosphere!
good pov with nice fg perspective and a distance view at far! the boats colour makes a nice colour contrast as well!
thanks for the informative notes
A happy Easter, my friend!
macondo (18595) 2009-04-12 19:36
A lovely lakeside scene in late winter/early spring light. The white house on the slope behind and the ducks' ripples provide the highlights in this tranquil setting. The coloured boats are obviously for hire, and the water looks still enough for even a novice rower. The photo has a good sense of depth. Nicely done, and good note.
MLINES (12516) 2009-04-12 20:52
Hi Wilson, Well composed with good POV and balance both vertically and horizontally. It looks like a good place to relax with a little row around this lake. Good eternal colours. TFS. Murray.
patdeph (35748) 2009-04-13 0:30
one more nice view of this place!The landscape is superb and quiet,and the 3 boats add splendid vivid colours in the softness of the picture!Very well done!
Nicou (120410) 2009-04-13 1:12
superbe image ces belle barques coloées sur ce plan d'eau sont mangigiques avec el ponton en bois, le canards à droite, magniggique.
bravo et amitié
siolaw (38274) 2009-04-13 3:09
Nice compo with the small boats and ducks balancing the FG well, a pleasant hilly landscape does a good BG. I also like the contrasted light under this overcast sky...
Greetings from Thailand
Angelillo (9372) 2009-04-13 7:22
Great scenery. The three boats create a melancolic and nostalgic mood I like very much. The soft colors enhance this feeling, for me at least. Great!
anducina (8407) 2009-04-13 10:31
Beautiful scene, I like a lot the combination of silver lake, gray sky and colorful boats. The distant white house on the forest-covered hill happily completes the landscape...
claudeD (32081) 2009-04-13 10:48
I like this picture very much.Excellent colors and sharpness.Perfect reflections in the water.Much atmosphere.Very well done.
With regards from Luxembourg
Vasa (16760) 2009-04-13 15:19
Dear friend Wilson
Nice example that you don't need to go in China or in France for amazing pictures. You meet them skill in your Cumbria. Tree colors of boats and two ducks are so welcome in this nice landscape. The spring is smiling - that could be your message.
Many thanks friend for your visits. Proud of your friendship.
pierrefonds (56462) 2009-04-13 17:16
The reflections in the water are assets to the composition. The point of view takes our eyes toward the house in the background which is giving depth to the photo. The cloudy sky has a special effect on the colors of the scenery. have a nice day.
John_F_Kennedy (42062) 2009-04-13 22:21
This is a nice mid day shot with excellent light, great colours. It's a wonderful shot.
JCG (35129) 2009-04-14 10:26
The names of these boats are original... Another point of view just as relaxing and enjoyable as your previous photo. I love the balance of the image and the contrast with the colorful foreground. Beautiful glance, thank you Wilson.
With all my friendships and a very good evening,
Jean-Luc (5488) 2009-04-15 10:11
Ces bateaux qui portent des noms assez curieux et qui attendent les touristes forment un beau trio coloré dans ce panorama très agréable et paisible.
jemaflor (83711) 2009-04-15 11:02
Good pov with a good effect with water mirror and the orange color, well managed.
emjleclercq (15780) 2009-04-15 14:20
Very nice point of view over this small lake. The water looks a bit grey due to the cloudy sky, yet the small rowing boats show more happy colors.
All the best,
BWJ (3060) 2009-04-15 18:56
So picturesque! It is a fine composition with very attractive colors and many wonderful details holding my attention, e.g., the names on the boats and the ducks. The atmosphere is conveyed perfectly.
Bluejeans (64247) 2009-04-16 12:22
Ola Wilson ,
Que beleza de foto ficou fantástica , este primeiro plano ficou lindo com estes três barcos , bonito o tom de prata da agua , gostei muito da paisagem de fundo, parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
stego (24028) 2009-04-16 16:49
I almost missed this one. It's a very attractive view, in a much subtle way, because it's everything but stunning. It perspires an amazing sense of peace. I find it extremely well composed, taking good profit of the colour punch of the boats, the tranquillity evoked by the ducks and the discreet but great visual harmony. I bet that with such apparently boring light, which actually looks beautiful in the photo, most of us wouldn't be able to get anything worth.
pablominto (53744) 2009-04-18 10:49
Seems like a pleasant place to spend some time!
The boats, the ducks and the nice surroundings, all is inviting...
A well balanced composition with good details, not the brightest light but the colours come out well!
Tue (27696) 2009-04-21 1:18
A very pleasant view over the lake with this calm and peaceful atmosphere. The little pier is very well placed on the left hand side along with the colourful boats. A nice view on the hills on the other side of the water as well. Thanks for sharing!
chrisnet (21092) 2009-04-23 12:15
I like this peaceful scene, the landscape is very nice, good atmosphere in this view, well done.
AROBN54 (11471) 2009-04-24 8:36
Oh my, Wilson,
this is just as nice as the last one from here. Perfectly composed with those three colorful boats at the pier contrasting with the more subdued colors all around. I love the way the eye goes from the boats across the water and up those great hills. The white structure is a nice drawing point, too and the balance is wonderful. Great shot!! Many thanks and warm regards,
plimrn (21344) 2009-05-12 8:12
I love the way you feature the Misty Dancer, Annie & Water Gypsy and their reflections in the placid lake. It invites one to climb aboard and explore the far shore. Very interesting detail in the note as well.
ahmetgedikli (25464) 2009-05-30 13:08
Superb scenery... Very good POV and DOF on your photo. The light and colors are beautiful.
dumbo (4541) 2009-07-10 1:35

Charo (51210) 2009-09-08 16:47
A gray day in which the boats put a touch of color to the composition. Excellent framing, perspective and details.
cobra112 (15589) 2009-09-11 14:08
Ciao Wilson. Indedd a fascinating compo in perspective and perfect sharpness. Good contrast, beautiful saturation and interesting space management. Special reflections for Annie e Myster Daneer. Two ducks: nice insert.

Waylim (25186) 2009-09-24 9:34

The boats do have interesting names! Like how their colours especially of the two boats in front provide a splash of colour. Nice hill in the BG with the lovely houses. Even in the low light, the picture is beautiful...wonder how fine this would look in good sunlight
papagolf21 (85450) 2010-01-16 1:59
Bonjour, cher ami Wilson,
Voici un lieu qui inspire calme, tranquillité et sérénité tant le paysage est beau.
Bien sûr, la nature n'est pas encore en éveil, mais l'on sent poindre le renouveau.
Image parfaitement composée (l'oeil du photographe ne s'est pas trompé).
fotka (3465) 2010-02-24 10:29
I like this soft colors and light on the photo. The landscape is lovely with three boats on the lake in the foreground and surrounding hills in the background. It's a very nice peaceful place to enjoy the outdoors.
xramm (1831) 2010-07-29 10:54
You captured very relax atmosphere with nice colors,
buscape (6219) 2010-09-08 5:14
