Photographer's Note

Wastwater is the deepest lake in the country at a depth of almost 300 feet; who knows what lurks in its shadowy depths. It is also in a spectacular location and is surrounded by some of the finest mountains in the region; Great Gable, Pillar and Scafell Pike. Wasdale is also the most difficult of the main Lake District valleys to visit as it can only be approached from the south west and all the main transportation links are over to the east of the region. This is a good thing though, as this most beautiful of valleys is rarely very busy; you don't see the swarms of tourists and day trippers that tend to flock to the more easily accessible places.
I took two nearly identical versions of this picture; one without the red car and this one, but decided that I liked having the car in the frame as it provides a bit more colour and also draws the eye into the scene quite nicely.
This was scanned from a colour slide and I made the usual minor adjustments: levels, contrast, saturation and sharpening.
I hope you like it.
