Black & White Landscape Photos from the Lake District

The missus and I had a weekend break in Hawkshead in the Lake District last weekend to escape work and wedding planning (the latter is mainly me). Our itinerary was hiking, which was a great opportunity to explore and photograph some of the lovely Lake District landscapes.

Our route took us across Skelwith, from Hawkshead Hill all the way to Skelwith Bridge. The weather was partly cloudy and 10 degrees celcius; lovely for a day’s hiking.

Using my Canon 24-105mm and Sigma 10-20mm, the following were some of the favourite captures. Click the images for larger view.

The trees of the Lake District were magical, and do in this image help create a gloomy look with the dark skies.

Damaged Trees at Iron Keld Plantation

We found these trees at the Iron Keld tree plantation, a plantation which was ravaged by a storm a few years back, causing most of the trees to fall. You can wonder whether these trees are also a testament of that same storm...

The results of the big storm at the Iron Keld Plantation, which wiped out all the trees!

I didn’t just produce Black & White Landscape photos, so you might see some additional photos here soon. To see the rest of the landscape photos, go to my smugmug.

    Lekre bilder!

    Spesielt det med de lave murene som lagde linjer på tvers av landskapet. Virkelig lekkert bilde 🙂
