PhotoNetCast #37 is now available so, since this show is about landscape photography and since the hosts were kind enough to invite me back, I figured I had better make sure I had a landscape somewhere recent on the blog!
This shot was taken at the north-eastern end of Ennerdale Water in the English Lake District during a hike my wife and I took last summer. The scenery here is absolutely spectacular and the week we spent there with our extended family was wonderful.
Photographically, this is what I would consider a “grab shot” with no particular planning. We timed our walk so that we would be there towards the end of the afternoon but, given that it was mid-summer, the light is still a bit harsher than I would have liked if I had been going out specifically to take this picture. From a composition standpoint, I tried to create interest and depth by ensuring that there are different layers in the image – foreground, middle and background.
