Autumn Landscape Trip - Lake District National Park

25th November 2014
I've recently returned from a few days away photographing the Lake District National Park, concentrating on capturing some of the autumn foliage as the landscape moves through the autumn season. The Lake District in autumn is a magical place, the roads are quieter, parking is much easier and you often have the hillside and photography locations to yourself. The colour in the trees and the general landscape are truly beautiful and the whole area has a completely different feel than experienced during the summer holidays. Reading through the blogs and Facebook profiles of other landscape photographers, the Lake District seems to attract many high profile landscape photographers at this time of year, whether this be on commissions or running the one of the seemingly many residential photography workshops surrounded by the autumn colours of the English Lake District.

The conditions during my long weekend didn't disappoint everyday we had rain, sun, hail and wind all set against a landscape which was turning from summer greens through autumn oranges and browns to the bare winter colours. The weather pattern was typical Lake District with bright morning with skies clearing soon after sunrise only to cloud over by mid day and heavy rain in the evenings and throughout the night.

On this trip we based ourselves near to Ambleside to allow easy access to some of the viewpoints of the central Lake District region. I made it out for sunrise most days finding cloudy weather which soon cleared to produce some great clear side lighting backed up by stormy skies and low cloud. I've organised all of the images from the trip and below are my personal favourites, I hope you enjoy this small showcase of what the Lake District has to offer during the autumn months.
