Bluebells Are Out In Abundance

May 18, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Well, it's that time of year again; time to view the splendour of spring flora, and in particular the colourful bluebells in our wooded hideaways.

So, like many others my wife and I took the short journey to the area around Roseberry Topping where we know we will be able to see and capture great photographs of these colourful flowers.

We have even created a small gallery dedicated to our photographs of Roseberry Topping in all seasons. Bluebell WoodBluebell WoodAnother wonderful view of the Bluebells along the walk to Roseberry Topping.

Another trip to the Lakes to take advantage the glorious winter weather saw us navigating from Coniston to Wast Water, Hardknott Pass and one of favourite places, Ambleside. Very poor weather spoiled play but we did manage a couple of nice photographs

There are several of these small bridges along the lakeside road to Wasdale Head so plenty of opportunity to take some nice pictures - even in the rain!

We have just returned from a trip to Keswick in the Lake District.

Snow capped mountains and frosty hazy mornings made for some great atmospheric photographs around the local area including lake Derwent Water.

Sunrise Over Derwent WaterSunrise Over Derwent WaterEvery time we visit Derwent Water we walk to our favourite locations to take another photograph but with different lighting. I'm always hoping at each visit the weather will look on us favourably and that elusive best shot of a lifetime will open up before our eyes. Here's hoping.

Lakeside Robin

The robin illustrated in this photograph was so tame I'm sure I heard it tweet cheese when I pointed my camera his way!

Taken on a bitterly cold and wintery day in January along the shores of Derwent Water. RobinRobinThis was such a tame this little Robin along the waters edge at Derwent Water.
After taking several photographs on my camera I pulled out my mobile phone for a picture. Couldn't believe it; it let me get within 100mm of it's beak, almost posing for every shot I took.
I'm sure at one point I heard it tweet cheese!
