Windermere morn



  1. I thought I’d make use of this, it’s been hiding in the black hole that is the “media library” for quite some time. It’s nice to know that I’m not the only one that’s occasionally had problems posting images, judging by the number of multiple copies that are in there (the “media library”).

  2. It’s intriguing to speculate as to how this would look as a framed print on the wall. Is it too narrow one wonders? Did it exist in your black hole as this crop or did you do it for Stills? The morning light and touch of mist go to make a suitably Wordworthian comment on the Lake District, while the red buoy is a very effective punctuation mark! What I find interesting about the composition is that because the trees on the right are closer I spend time looking at their detail to try and see more about what they are – they seem to be oaks when not coniferous and the season appears to be Spring.

  3. I often create panoramas to create the impression of the vastness of a landscape. There is something magnificent about the size and dwarfing nature of a real landscape which is difficult to replicate in a standard print or a standard web image. Nora and I went to the Ansel Adams’ exhibition in London (Jan) and there were several prints that were about 2m w by 3 m high.
    The originals had been printed by Ansel in small sheets which were stuck together to create the full image. The size of them and the detail in them were rather awesome and did create the sensation of a real landscape.
    I love the depth created by the recession in the hills. There is a hint of colour in the texture in the trees which adds interest and I love the buoy too!

  4. I can easily imagine a group of photographers who would call for cloning out that red buoy — fortunately, this is not that group! It is a lovely panorama and the buoy helps set it apart from other misty morning scenes.

  5. I can’t add much – this is a lovely and very intimate image. I like wide and thin panoramas and find they can work at a nice handholdable scale or as bigger prints, depending on the image. I think this could make a very nice print to pass around a room – perhaps 12 or 15 inches wide on some nice rag paper? Good work and glad to see it recovered from the pit.
