Before I found this location I hadn't found a decent view over Derwent Water which was easily accessible. Luckily I stumbled across this location when out on a cycle ride.

Scale Force Waterfall may not be as well known as Aira Force, but in my opinion it's equally as impressive and from a photographer's perspective a great location.

This location is on the shores of Wastwater. Netherbeck is one of the many streams flowing from the fells into the lake. The location is particularly special due to the photogenic bridge. I used the bridge to frame my composition.

Wastwater is the Lake District at its best. It's England’s deepest lake at 258 feet and lies in the Wasdale valley to the west of the National Park.

One of the three routes to Buttermere, Newlands Pass is a narrow and winding road, at times precipitous. At its highest point, just above Buttermere is a car park which allows easy access onto the surrounding craggs.

Sunrise and sunset are great for this Lake District location, as the tarn is placed fairly high up the hill. Great panoramic shots of the distant mountains, and views of Blencathra are close by.
