We will be based in the north lakes and visit some of the top spots in the Lake District for photographs.  The Lake District has been a favourite location for photographers for decades.  It offers a rich variety of landscapes and the seasonal weather means it can be different every time you visit.

The weather creates unique windows to capture, reflections, mist, stormy skies and subtle and strong colours - often all in the space of 1-2 days and sometimes just hours.

We will visit approximately 2-3 locations a day in a weekend subject to the wishes of the group, time, weather and other factors:

Typical locations include:

  • Grasmere
  • Rydal Water
  • Ullswater
  • Martindale
  • Derwent Water
  • Watendlath
  • Allonby
  • Wastwater
  • Buttermere
  • Crummock
  • Elterwater
  • Hodge Close
  • Bassenthwaite
  • Little Langdale
  • Tarn How
  • Blea Tarn
