Photographer's Note

One of the nicest views in Lake Ditrict are around Wast Water (lake).

This picture was captured just before the sun gone and it made the nice lighting on the hills. Few minutes before this picture stopped the rain and I could build my tripod and take this picture. I didn't plan to take pictures on this trip which I went with my sister's family and girfriend but I couldn't help me and had to take this shot.
I used zoom lens which gave to this picture nice result.

Let me know if you like it. Honest critiques welcomed!!!

About this place from Wikipedia:
Wast Water or Wastwater is a lake in the Lake District National Park, England. The lake is approximately 4.6 kilometres (almost 3 miles) long and 600 metres (more than a third of a mile) wide, and is located in the Wasdale valley. It is the deepest lake in England, at 79 metres (258 feet), and is owned by the National Trust.

It is one of the finest examples of a glacially 'over-deepened' valley. The surface of the lake is about 200 feet above sea level, while its bottom is over 50 feet below sea level.

The name of the lake and its valley is pronounced as in was, not with a hard a. The lake is named "Wast Water" on Ordnance Survey maps, but the spelling "Wastwater" is used with roughly equal frequency, including by its owner, the National Trust, along with the Cumbria Tourist Board, and the Lake District National Park Authority.
