Castlerigg Stone Circle at Sunrise

This is Castlerigg Stone Circle at sunrise. Castlerigg lies just outside of Keswick in the Lake District and proves that there’s more to the region than (just) stunning water based scenery!

Boat on the shore at Derwentwater, Keswick

If you’ve been to Keswick, you’ll know that this is one of the iconic images of Derwentwater – the little boats for hire, where people can take some time out and just relax on the water. Bliss!

Again, this photo was taken using a Canon 500D and 18-55mm kit lens, and again a 10 stop neutral density filter was employed to smooth the water, and remove any people from the shot.

Millennium Stone, Derwentwater, Keswick, Lake District

This is an old photograph from my first trip to the Lake District in September of 2009. This photograph of the Millennium Stone in Derwentwater was taken with a Canon 500D and 18-55mm kit lens. The smooth water was created by using a very dark filter which increased the length of time it took to take the photograph to around 20 seconds.

And no – I didn’t put the stone in there in Photoshop!
