Photographer's Note

We went across country to the Lake District National Park for a couple of days, staying overnight at Cockermouth. The weather was glorious so we had an early dinner and went out to catch the last of the light.

This is Buttermere, 9 miles (15km) from Cockermouth on the narrow windy road B5289, which winds past nearby Crummock Water before passing Buttermere. You can see the road on the left. At only 1ス miles long, セ mile wide and 75 feet deep, Buttermere is one of the smaller lakes but no less beautiful. It attracts thousands of visitors each year for the many walks in the vicinity. If you池e not into climbing hills you can walk around the perimeter.

This is a fairly classic view but difficult to resist. The mountain in the background is called Haystacks.

FL18mm, ISO100

Edit People (understandably) think the structure bottom left is a bench. It is however a rickety bridge with a handrail. There's a gully there with water flowing through into the lake, so it's put there to prevent walkers getting their feet wet!
