Highlights

Haweswater. Whenever I've made the time to get out with the camera these last few months, the weather hasn't played ball. When others can walk away with great shots on a moody day, I go home disappointed and frustrated. However, I finally got the light I was craving on Saturday morning whilst perched on the side of Harter Fell. I always thought this view would look best in portrait, making it 'Instafriendly'; I think I'm quite guilty of making sure my shots are when I'm out and about. But fortunately I took a couple in landscape bringing the sun lit fells into the frame. All the better for it, engagement be damned! I've made a vlog about this mornings shoot on my IGTV channel! #lakedistrict #lovelakeswalks #golakes #lakescollective #thelakelanders #fromlakelandwithlove #theplacetobe #brilliantbritain #uk_greatshots #ukpotd #scenicbritain #GloriousBritain #traveling_uk #uk_shots #ukhikingofficial #repostmyfujifilm #myfujilove #fujilove #fujifilm_global #getoutstayout #landscape_photography #photographerslife #lifeofadventure #roamearth #earthcapture #properadventure #bestmountainartists #landscapestyles #justgoshoot #nb_nature_brilliance

The Break. Yesterday I had the pleasure of hanging out with loads of like minded people at the Instameet organised by @fromlakelandwithlove. A great walk from Tarn Hows, Holme Fell and Hodge Close Quarry. This is a seven shot handheld pano, taken on the top of Holme Fell, just after the first of a few big downpours! #lakedistrict #lovelakeswalks #golakes #lakescollective #thelakelanders #fromlakelandwithlove #theplacetobe #photosofbritain #lovegreatbritain #brilliantbritain #uk_greatshots #ukpotd #scenicbritain #GloriousBritain #traveling_uk #uk_shots #ukhikingofficial #repostmyfujifilm #myfujilove #fujilove #getoutstayout #landscape_photography #photographerslife #lifeofadventure #roamearth #earthcapture #rsa_folknature #properadventure #justgoshoot #nb_nature_brilliance

The High Level Bridge. So I had made a second page for street type stuff like this, but ain't no one got time for two Instagram accounts, so expect a few different shots peppered in every now and again. I walk this bridge twice a day, I proposed to my girlfriend on this bridge, I once saw a pigeon pecking at a jammie dodger on this bridge. I love this bridge. #newcastle #newcastlevisuals #ncl #nclcollective #uk_shooters #photosofbritain #lovegreatbritain #brilliantbritain #uk_greatshots #ukpotd #northeastengland #thetyneisnow #northumberland_uk #visitnorthumberland #northumberland_pics #explorenorthumblerland #northumberland #architecture_hunter #streets_vision #SPicollective #streetclassics #street #streetphotography #streetgrammers #streetmobs #citygrammers #citykillerz #rawurbanshots #repostmyfujifilm #myfujilove

Herd Groyne Lighthouse. Thought I'd explore my new local area some more with a trip to South Shields this morning. Sunrise was grey and cloudy but 45mins later the sun broke through, just as I was brushing off the sand from my tripod. Luckily the dash back to the beach was a short one!

Otterbield Bay. Had a wander around the western shores of Derwent Water this morning and witnessed some amazing colour in the sky, all very romantic. So much so I went back home and proposed to my girlfriend this afternoon, she said yes.

Catbells Dawn. My first shot of the new year, and with my new camera. Jumped ship to Fuji and their XT3, and I couldn't be happier. My biggest issue with my old setup was the quality of wide angle lenses; this Fuji 10-24mm is stunning and pin sharp across the whole image, can't wait to get more use out of it. I decided Catbells was an easy place to try it out, and had some fingers crossed for an inversion. Didn't get that lucky but the light was fantastic once the sun rose over the Eastern Fells. #lakedistrict #lovelakeswalks #golakes #lakescollective #thelakelanders #fromlakelandwithlove #theplacetobe #photosofbritain #lovegreatbritain #brilliantbritain #uk_greatshots #ukpotd #scenicbritain #GloriousBritain #traveling_uk #uk_shots #ukhikingofficial #getoutstayout #landscape_photography #photographerslife #lifeofadventure #roamearth #greatnorthcollective #earthcapture #rsa_folknature #properadventure #ournaturedays #bestmountainartists #landscapestyles #justgoshoot

Kentmere. This last weekend was so frustrating; I'd given myself 5 days to shoot something and spent the week before researching new spots around the Lakes. When it came to it, it rained. A lot. Fortunately on Tuesday the forecast looked much better, and a hike up and over High Street was rewarded with a fantastic sunrise. It's such a great feeling when it all comes together, this kept me buzzing for the rest of the day. If you saw my @thelakelanders post yesterday then this will look familiar. That was a phone edit, and this is a crop of my final image. #lakedistrict #lovelakeswalks #golakes #lakescollective #thelakelanders #fromlakelandwithlove #theplacetobe #photosofbritain #lovegreatbritain #brilliantbritain #uk_greatshots #ukpotd #scenicbritain #GloriousBritain #traveling_uk #uk_shots #ukhikingofficial #getoutstayout #landscape_photography #photographerslife #lifeofadventure #roamearth #greatnorthcollective #earthcapture #rsa_folknature #properadventure #ournaturedays #bestmountainartists #landscapestyles #justgoshoot

Newlands Valley. This was one of those mornings that really tested me; should I go home and back to bed, or should I wait for the sun to maybe appear in that gap in the cloud? Thankfully I waited, and almost an hour after sunrise it burst through for a couple of minutes of amazing light. This is a crop of a 16:9, there's a full size on my Flickr and Facebook pages. #lakedistrict #lovelakeswalks #golakes #lakescollective #fromlakelandwithlove #cumbria #theplacetobe #photosofbritain #lovegreatbritain #brilliantbritain #uk_greatshots #ukpotd #scenicbritain #capturingbritain #traveling_uk #uk_shooters #ukhikingofficial #getoutstayout #landscape_photography #photographerslife #lifeofadventure #roamearth #greatnorthcollective #earthcapture #rsa_folknature #properadventure #ournaturedays #bestmountainartists #landscapestyles #thelakelanders

Moss Force. Managed to get out and about on Saturday, the weather wasn't great but thought this spot on the top of the Newlands Valley might work in the conditions. After carefully picking my way down from the path (and cursing @stuartmcglennon for the idea, one slip and you'd be in trouble here), I waited for a passing shower to move down the valley. Thanks for the printing advice earlier today, much appreciated!

Small Water. I posted this a couple of weeks ago over on @thelakelanders page, so here it is again for some of you! I took this a couple of years ago, halfway up Mardale Ill Bell, overlooking Small Water and down to Haweswater. A great morning, apart from running over a badger on the way there! #lakedistrict #lovelakeswalks #golakes #lakescollective #thelakelanders #fromlakelandwithlove #cumbria #theplacetobe #photosofbritain #lovegreatbritain #brilliantbritain #uk_greatshots #ukpotd #scenicbritain  #capturingbritain #traveling_uk #uk_shooters #ukhikingofficial #getoutstayout #landscape_photography #photographerslife #lifeofadventure #roamearth #greatnorthcollective #earthcapture #rsa_folknature #properadventure #ournaturedays #bestmountainartists #landscapestyles
