The forecast was dour. Rain the whole week! And I had a one to one workshop in Borrowdale, reputedly the wettest place in England! My student and I exchanged emails, discussing the alternatives if the forecast proved correct however the outlook for our chosen day suddenly became brighter.
We met at Castlerigg before the sun rose and spent the first part of our day watching the light change and hoping for some colour. We were very fortunate and managed to capture some really telling shots as the clouds raced across the sky. My particular favourite is the image with the crows circling moments before the sun rose above the horizon.
The weather remained favourable for most of the day as we explored Ashness Bridge, Derwent Water, Borrowdale Valley and Buttermere before returning to the lakeside of Derwent Water for sunset shots. Click on any one of the images to see the full gallery.
