A Week At The Lake

I spent a week at the Lake District with LPH to learn how to take better photographs and to learn new techniques. I loved this week! Calming and relaxing but still creative and fun. We went out for all five days and had to pick 10 photographs to be looked at each night.  We mixed a family holiday (Mom and Step Dad) in with a creative holiday.

 Some times it seems like it would be difficult to pick just 10 photographs! but it was doable. For the last night we had to pick two of our favourites from these ten. I've picked one from each day to show you.

Monday. At Watendlath Lake (I believe). A low angle.  First time I've used my big DSLR camera since Christmas, so it took a while to get used to the settings again.

Tuesday. A 'free' day to go out by ourselves.  We walked around either Cadger How Wood or Brow's Wood - not really sure.  Spotted a field of sheep when we stopped for lunch.

Wednesday. I think this is at Buttermere.  I've always loved these slow shutter shots of moving water and this is the first time I've been able to get a good shot! (Ususally they are over/under-exposed- I never gave myself enough time to figure out how to do this). Thank you John.

Thursday. Another 'free' day.  We went to Whinlatter National Park and decided to hike up 500m for lunch (Seat How Summit Trail).  Took this photograph on the way down. (I did alter it in Photoshop but I think I need to play with PS more to learn how to do this).

Friday. Our last day to take photographs in the Lake District.  Magically this feather just stopped where it was needed so I could get a photograph of it! This was taken at Loughrigg Tarn.  I'm glad John has blipped some of these and that he knows where we went!

I've also started using BlipFoto. I signed up back in January but only started using it last week. Stop by and leave a comment.
