Netherbeck Bridge, Wastwater, Lake District

macuser's picture

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. If you venture up into the fells you are rewarded with fantastic views over Wastwater and lots of waterfalls to shot. To photograph this location, filters and a tripod are highly recommended. 

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. It is easy to see why the view from the souther-western end of the lake was announced as the winner of  "Britain's Favourite View" in 2007. Wastwater is perhaps the most awe-inspiring of all the lakes. Surrounded by the mountains of Red Pike, Kirk Fell, Great Gable and Scafell Pike - England's highest mountain.

Wastwater has a genuine wildness about it. It is a beautiful spot, and benefits from its remoteness (although at times busy due to its popularity with walkers). The Wasdale Inn, about half a mile past Wastwater is a nice place for a good drink and some food.
