Good Morning Everyone,
For me, the Lake District is a very special place. I really look forward to visits there and this year we visited Loweswater for the very first time.
My husband and I, went to Loweswater with friends. We stayed in a beautiful old manor house, now acting as a guest house, which was a great centre from which to explore Loweswater and Crummock Water.
When we set off in the morning, to walk the length of the lake, the weather was quite dull but as the day wore on, the day got brighter and warmer. In the late afternoon, the sun was colouring the hilltops and causing lovely reflections in the water.
The hill you see in the b/g is Lowe Fell (thank you John (tyro) for that information.)
Hope you all have a lovely day, Bev

You're very welcome! I just hope that I got it right this time!
This is a beautifully framed shot and I love how we see the brightly lit distant view framed by the darker foreground and the overhanging dark foliage. The reflections on the calm water are delightful. This must have been a wonderful walk but it looks as though the sun is getting lower in the sky - perhaps just the time to return for some grub and a beer to reward yourselves after your trek!
Lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and excellent sharpness and clarity.

Your image does justice to this location. A pleasant, inviting, well balanced composition. The lakes district is a region that I could easily spend months and not lose interest.

I love the way you managed the beautiful scenery through the trees and over the lake.
Besides the fabulous reflection of the mountains and trees, you had managed superbly the variable light and shaded areas.
Fantastic taken shot over the lakeside.

Clever use of the foliage to frame the sunlit mountains and their lovely reflections, whilst also giving the scene depth. Good light and shadow contrasts and excellent colours and sharpness.

You know, if I seen this image and was asked to guess, I would have guessed this was somewhere in North America. It has that vibe to it for some reason. Its a beautiful vision of the Lake District. Even though I have never been, I have heard of its beauty and your shot more than shows that beauty off. the colors in this are really perfect compliments to each other, and your framing with the trees is excellent.
Thanks as always

Une vraiment belle carte postale de cet endroit. La lumière est superbe et les reflets sont parfaits dans les eaux calmes du lac. La montagne au loin profite d'une bien belle lumière.

hello bev. indeed, lake district looks like a place to be craved for. a gentle view framed with vegetation. the hills have a soft light and reflect perfectly in the still water.
mirosu (10224) 2013-11-27 5:40
Well timed shot frozen to perfection and nicely in frame. Beautifully razor sharp and contrast well, clear and very well caught in such brilliant clarity. Great that we also get to enjoy glimpse of the environment all very well put together, in particular I love to see the reflections and steely sheen on water. Well done.

a wistful and beautiful shot this. It is like glimpsing into a crystal ball and seeing a haven that you just want to step into. A gloriously organically framed view that just oozes peace, tranquillity and beauty. Superb!
Regards - B.

Amazing capture with very good layout.
The leafs and branches of the trees creates a perfect natural framing. Nice reflections.
TFS and best regards

This must have been a very good day, with perfect weather in a beautiful surrounding. The hills (or mountains) in the background are perfecter reflected in the lake and well framed by all the leaves and branches. A very good picture.
chawax (17290) 2013-11-27 13:18
A nice view on a lake through the trees. The reflections and the golden light on the mountains make a very peaceful atmosphere.
Thanks for sharing,
jemaflor (76660) 2013-11-27 23:05
A good pov with this view through the hole formed bay leaves, lovely light on the mountains et perfect reflections on water, well made.

Beautiful contrast between the dark foliage framing the scene and the sunlit mountain beyond: a classic, well-composed landscape.

I've read many magazine articles that speak to the popularity of the Lake District, and this is an image that would certainly support that notion! I'm a big fan of natural surrounding being utilized in a creative way to place a frame within the frame, and you've done a masterful job here with the tree's.
What an amazingly beautiful view with such sumptuous light bathing the hills beyond, setting a very appealing and attractive scene. I'm really enjoying how the blue sky is reflected with a slightly darker shade in the foreground. Top to bottom, side to side, this is beautiful! Thanks for "painting" the picture, I'm quite enjoying this one! :)

quel cadrage végétatif sueprbe vue et iamge quelle compo et ensemble avec le reflet de la montagne sur le plan d'eau et ces doux tons superbe.
Bravo et amitié

lovely composition. As beautiful as this region is -it is sometimes hard to present its beauty, the lakes are always difficult to photograph. You did a fantastic job here using a perfect framing. The attractive view in the very centre is nicely decorated with the vegetation all around the frame. The highlight is in my opinion the reflection which is as vivid as the reality. Very nice sinusoidal geometry.
I have to get back there again...
Gigidusud (11679) 2013-11-28 15:15
Splendid landscape with great reflections and beautiful colors. I like the light and the POV too. Well done!
fabbs99 (13519) 2013-11-28 20:38
This is a lovely scene from behind the trees.The light on the mountain contrasts well against the dark surface of the lake waters.Very well done.TFS.
macjake (48363) 2013-11-28 23:19
You often seem to take these calming little trips to charming places, you have a knack for finding them don't you :)
Good on ya!!
And here we have another, with one of those peek-a-boo type of scenes.
More difficult than they appear because of the contrasting lights and darks, you pulled it off smartly. Romantic and soothing mother nature scene, hard to resist it.
You asked about the dogs on Easter Island....most are wild and scavaging for food/water. I wanted to take them all home!! So sweet :)
Kugart (1776) 2013-11-29 3:01
A real stunner. What I like about this picture is the calmness of the whole scene which you have created by your composition and the beautiful lighting. The way you have framed the view through the surrounding trees,the calm surface on the water,the reflections, the rolling green hills on the opposite shore and the beautifully lit mountains in the background. Fantastic......
annjackman (16507) 2013-11-29 3:02
This lovely Fell and lake have been so well framed by the branches and lake edge. The light is exquisite and the reflections perfect.
Kind Regards, Ann
adramad (32927) 2013-11-29 8:21
A fantastic composition of this beautiful landscape, stunning reflections in the lake and wonderful POV, framing the entire scene with this beautiful tree branches, they offer a wonderful natural fit.
A colorful perfect very natural.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Good job. I love it.
Enjoy a good weekend.

This could almost pass for some of beautiful alpine lakes around Jasper in the Canadian Rockies, except the mountains are older, worn down and not snow-capped for as long. But still a gorgeous view with wonderful reflections and the silhouetted vegetation frames the scene nicely. Tfs!

Ciao cara Bev
What an idyllic photo and an idyllic landscape. The water looks so glassy and the light has been beautifully managed. I like how the greenery provides a natural frame for the photo and of course the reflection of the mountains is stunning in its clarity. Lovely work!
PaulVDV (18764) 2013-12-01 9:53
Wonderful view through the hole between the branches. The mountain is nicely lit by the sun and its warm tones are reflected in the lake.
A beautiful warm view surrounded by a darker frame.
Best regards, Paul

this is wonderful, one of your best photos for sure. It could be right out of a fairytale. Magnificent colors and light management. The frame is well chosen and the autumn leaves in the foreground are the icing on the cake. My compliments!
npecanhuk (58264) 2013-12-23 19:34
Special regards to the management of difficult light, soft colors and composition with those attractive symmetrical reflections!
TFS - congrats,
