A sunny day often brings out the tourists in the English Lakes & this day was no exeption, & as a local it can be hard work getting to places as beautiful as this due to people coming to Coniston & surrounding beauty spots, however with so much to offer I fully understand the attraction.

Old boats are always interesting, and I notice the fine wooden specimens in front here!
This is a well composed documentary with fine details, the atmosphere is well conveyed to the viewer...
siolaw (38292) 2008-08-26 23:33
The all world is being taken over by mass tourism... adventure traveling is (almost) over!
It has some good sides too....
A fine and bright light giving vivid colors and textures. The place is well presented and so is the difficulty for locals to access their usual picnic spots!

Une scéne vivante très bien composée de tous ces éléments dans ce beau paysage verdoyant,j'aime beaucoup ces bateaux du premier plan.

Hi Wilson. This is a wonderful contrast to our weather, although it is supposed to change this weekend. I have my fingers crossed ;-). Nice capture. Good depth and loads of detail. Good natural colours also. Thanks for sharing.
rodgerg (55767) 2008-08-27 3:29
A very pleasant picture with colours well collected and a great depth of field: the two small boats in the FG, the lake and, in the BG, the hill with a mixt of field and trees. The peoples gives an interesting element of fife, especially the two children in the BG.
Have a good evening,
Cricri (115467) 2008-08-27 4:14
Un endroit plaisant et trés touristique, j'aime les barques en avant plan différents des bâteaux moderne ou les canards nagent paisiblement, belle lumiére et couleurs
Good day for you

good to see something from you. Must be a beautiful day as so many people are outside on the water. Lovely and lively scene at a lake in good sharpness.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf
jlbrthnn (76037) 2008-08-27 5:43
I appreciate this description of simple leisures and if resting for the body and the spirit. It is the sea in the countryside, and for me, more satisfactory than the sea and its foil. Very beautiful composition, alive, pleasant and carried out well. Cheer.
Have a nice day
claudeD (37252) 2008-08-27 8:14
you are right .This is really a wonderful sunny day with perfect weather conditions for the UK.Very good composition and fine colors.Bravo.
With regards from Luxembourg
Gustaw (21670) 2008-08-27 9:27
Yes, it is very nice day. Good composition. Good colours and light. I like your vacation photo. Nice small boats.
stego (24132) 2008-08-27 9:46
Indeed a beautiful sunny day at the lake. I feel envious of those two little boys on the FG, as I bet that they are having even better times than the rest of the people. You made a very nice compo with the boats and the natural beauty of the place.
TFS, Regards, José.
Kielia (24077) 2008-08-27 11:14
what a lovely and busy atmosphere of the lake you have captured! I like the phantastic light and the beautiful colours very much. This image is really a pleasure for the eyes! TfS!
Photo65Net (43120) 2008-08-27 11:25
Glad you're back ! :o)
An interesting compo, with great use of these boats in the FG.
I like how they lead eyes through the image.
Have a nice day,
Tue (32438) 2008-08-27 12:02
A very nice and sunny summer view of this place with several types of boats in the water here. I like the pleasant mood with all the people included in the photo. The colours and light are very attractive here as well. Thanks for sharing!
maltese (22873) 2008-08-27 14:27
Une belle activité pour cette journée d'été, de très belles couleurs et une grande envie d'aller faire un tour en barque sur le lac!!
MLINES (12516) 2008-08-27 14:37
Hi Wilson, Good everyday scene from Cumbria on a beautiful day. It shows the intrepid human spirit of people to get out, mix with others and enjoy good weather. he composition shows lots of details and the colours are good. TFS. Murray.
Gerrit (51876) 2008-08-27 15:37
excellent summer picture. The wooden rowboats are fantastic.
adores (43807) 2008-08-27 18:46
Nice daily scene with all these people coming and going to the bots, very well framed. I like the children in foreground playing with the ducks.
danyy (0) 2008-08-27 23:39
une photo pleine de vie et qui met de bonne humeur car en plus, le paysage est bien joli.
Même les canards font partie de la fête.
tabora (0) 2008-08-28 3:20
Un endroit très attractif ou se mélange l'homme et la nature, avec beaucoup de détails.
Cela donne envie d'y aller.
feather (51130) 2008-08-28 3:32
The sun hasn't put in appearance much this year but when it does there is nowhere more beautiful than the UK, particularly the Lakes. I like the way you have composed this with diagonals both foreground and background pointing into the middle of the lake. A less noticeable feature of the image is the tableau of the two children probably feeding the ducks. Well done
jemaflor (93121) 2008-08-28 10:06
Lovely composition with all these different boats, well placed in the forground, nice light and colours.
patdeph (35748) 2008-08-28 10:36
I think it must be a nice place when the weather is beautiful,like on your picture!The atmosphere is plenty of happiness,because of the sun and the vivid colours!I like the 2 wooden beautiful boats of the foreground whom the direction leads to the red boat!very well done!
Have a nice evening.
Philippe (11836) 2008-08-28 12:13
Hi, Wilson. I think you didn't have so many sunny days in the Lakes this summer. Your image illustrates the bustle of the tourists very well. People going on board the gondola and othres waiting on the wharfs, it all looks very busy. In the background the fells show their usual green which contrasts well with the colours and the activity of the foreground.
Have a nice evening,
gunbud (34066) 2008-08-28 17:52
What a lovely summertime image you have capture on the shores of this lovely lake.
The old wooden boats young kids and ducks add loads of charm to this peaceful place.
Excellent clarity and sharpness to this fine photo.
axiotea (21651) 2008-08-28 21:22
I also can understand the attraction by the tourists for this place and agree with you, it is not always easy for the local people. The boats in FG are a good starting point adding depth to the image in which the holiday atmosphere is well conveyed.
P.S thanks for your last critic on the picture taken in Paris, where I was for two months. I'm now in India...
John_F_Kennedy (43625) 2008-08-29 4:37
I like the POV and busy scenery. It's a wonderful shot with all the boats. Well done.
AROBN54 (11475) 2008-08-29 8:21
it surely IS a beautiful place. Seems that must be one of the prettiest places in all of England. And what a magnificent day. Fabulous clear bright color, great detail, wonderful light. I kind of like all the people around. Gives it a nice sense of life and activity. Really lovely shot! Many thanks and warm regards,
UlfE (14641) 2008-08-29 12:29
A wonderful scene. This is a very attractive picture and think it is your placing of the wooden boats that makes it so attractive and it is not doubt about it that the small boat in the middle is sort of the main subject here. It is very much is focus thanks to the placing of the boats in the foreground. A really, really good photo work. TFS and have a nice weekend!
emjleclercq (15780) 2008-08-29 15:13
Nice view of all the different boats, especially the two wooden ones in the foreground. And the ducks do not seem to be affraid at all.
All the best,
zeca (19762) 2008-08-30 0:00
I like the composition, specially those old boats and the children in the foreground. Its a nice little harbour and you did a nice capture, well managing your camera. TFS!
COSTANTINO (62575) 2008-08-30 0:02
A pretty photo with the colourful boats in the
background,beautiful day for all, a nice
atmosphere pleasant and nice..
Good work and good shot
thanks fro sharing
Henryk_Bilor (20799) 2008-08-31 8:17
Nice capture from the sunny day. Interesting scene, good light.
macondo (19253) 2008-09-02 4:44
I think we can declare this a genuine summer day, despite what I've read in the papers about a record level of 'dullness' in Britain this recent while.
It's a busy shot but because of the careful composition, the rough symmetry, and the perspective effect of the two foreground boats, it works really well. The light and colour seem very natural, and it's always good to see a shot where there's a close-up of something on ground level leading to a distant hills, mountains or somesuch.
It's a pleasing shot of ordinary people enjoying their summer in a beautiful location.
luiscar (3286) 2008-09-02 14:42
la imagen es muy sencilla, pero esta perfectamente controlada, la luz es magnifica, tambien la definicion, pero lo que mas me gusta es el primer plano de la imagen con las dos barcas muy bien posicionadas.
anducina (8407) 2008-09-12 23:42
Excellent well balanced compo, indeed a beautiful day, with blue sky, white boats on the lake and a lot of people obviously having fun. Well captured and framed.
TFS and have a nice WE !
Jean-Luc (5488) 2008-09-13 3:01
Cette composition avec toutes ces embarcations judicieusement disposées comme pour une présentation (avec canards au milieu!), est assez originale.
Silvio1953 (136545) 2008-09-14 2:56
Hi Wilson, lovely composition full of boats, wonderful light and splendid colors, very well done, ciao Silvio
JCG (35129) 2008-09-14 11:35
A beautiful estival scene here. I like much this light which raises all these colors. This lake seems very attended and I understand this passion. A photograph very pleasant to look at, thank you Wilson.
With all my friendships and a very good evening,
Colombiana (2955) 2008-09-20 11:17
Beautiful photo of a beautiful day!
This image is full of life, charm and joy.
All elements here are playing a
fantastic role adding dynamism to the scene.
the kids observing the ducks in the f/g
are adorable. The colors are fantastic and
the quality is sharp. I like it. This is
a happy one!
Regards from Miami!
danos (94150) 2008-09-21 2:17
Good morning Wilson,

Have a nice Sunday,danos
Vasa (3706) 2008-09-21 15:18
Hi Wilson friend,
many nice photos in your gallery during my holidays. Such is this one from Cumbria. Optimistic and smiling day in warm colors. So glad to see you again. Best regards
pboehringer (770) 2008-09-29 9:32
the beauty of the day is clearly visible in your composition. Everyone is out there: kids, adults, boats everywhere, ducks ... and the photographer to enjoy that rare moment of sun and pleasure. Nice capture!
pierrefonds (63246) 2008-10-02 20:02
The presence of the people has an effect od scale. The point of view is showing the boats and leads our eyes toward the mountain in the background. The capture of the water ripples is an asset to the composition. The colors are enhanced by the good light. Have a nice day.
JorgeCK (2620) 2008-10-10 14:48
Wonderful scene.The colors and lights and composition are splendid
The arrangement of the boats in the foreground are well thought.
sacavem (18620) 2008-10-18 15:33
Wonderful composition,with a beautiful luminosity.The light is 50% of this photo, the remaining portion is for colour and POV.
Didi (60346) 2010-01-23 7:19
Nice summer view and interesting deep foreground with the boats.
I'am fade up of this winter sad season.
