"What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to sit and stare?
.........
A poor life this if, full of care,
We make no time to sit and stare"


Excerpts from "Leisure", by WH Davies best says what I was thinking when I took this shot during a trip to the Lake District with my parents... This view is of Haweswater, Cumbria, on a rare (for me, at least :P ) blue sky (and a little hail) day :)

this is really incredible. the shadow over the mountain in the back almost makes it look like a scale model. i guess the lack of light sacrifices some of the depth. i love it! i don't think i would be as beautiful if every element in the photo did not coincide exactly as it did! :clap:

beautifully executed Whippeh! fantastic compostition:D...

It amazes me how truly beautiful nature is...I cant imagine how incredible this place looks in real life...and it looks pretty untouched by modern society, thats pretty rare to find any place now that seems untouched and undamaged by man...

Beautiful...except...there is no life in this picture IMHO...it appears bland and off coloured...never ever seen stones or rocks so hued....it looks fake, a composite....PSP or Photoshop used in excess to correct defects in exposure.....hope I'm wrong!
But beautiful non-the-less.;)

Mmm I am now back to comment on this lovely shot. What I really like about this is the colours - everything looks so rich, but then you have that blue in the sky which just really pulls you into the shot. Really like the contrast. The composition is lovely and you've managed to fill up the frame with so much scenery. From the clouds in the sky down to the rocks in the water, it's all nicely balanced. I quite like the soft look this has to it as well. You really have captured a lovely scene and peaceful atmosphere. Not only that, you have presented it nicely as well. Great work on this.

I love the lighting in this, either it was taken is serously amazing light of you've modified somehow which I don't mind either. I mean... it's stunning. Your composition is perfect - to bring so much into the frame and keep it so tied together. Great job, you shoot such amazing landscapes.

I was sent in your direction by =owens who said that you had some amazing water photographs and oh my god, he was SO right! This one is beautiful, it's so tranquil and gorgeous. It's funny how the colour of the sky can change a waterscape so dramatically. If that had a grey sky, it would completely change the mood of the picture. This reminds me so much of places I've seen in the north of scotland. It's just staggering to be somewhere this beautiful...I always feel honoured to have witnessed such beauty, and you have captured it perfectly here :)
