Autumn in the Lake District

Which is your favourite season? A long time ago I would have said that my preferred time of year is spring, but since taking up photography in recent years, my appreciation for autumn has grown and grown.

I don’t know whether this year is exceptional for colour, but it certainly feels like it. The Lake District looks fabulous in its autumn tones, and it really is the perfect time to get some dramatic shots. So get your camera out, and get snapping! Here are a few scenes I’ve captured whilst out and about.

  1. If you’re looking for somewhere scenic but quickly accessible from which to take photos, take a look at my post from earlier this year about Queen Adelaide’s Hill near Windermere: https://lakedistrictgems.co.uk/2015/08/03/queen-adelaides-hill-windermere/
