Landscape Photography in Lake District is always stunning, no matter the weather! This time it’s 2 days put together in one video, with lots of images! Starting with great light and ending in 50mph winds! ?
If you didn’t know, as well as always being out shooting for myself. I love to put meetups on, and bring photographers together for a good laugh and creative day! Like minded ladies and gentlemen from all over the country have joined me! It blows me away when the meet-ups are a success. On this occasion over 20 people came along at 6:30 in the morning. These meetups involve me knowing the areas, so the first part is myself and good friend Mikey doing a reccy of Tarn Hows, a place perfect for a large group!
I had originally thought we would all meet at Glen Mary Bridge car park. This is directly accessible from the A593 just further on from Yew Tree Tarn situated on the left. A small car park below Tom Heights and Tarn Hows. I thought this would be a great starting point, to make your way up through the steep rocks following the waterfall and stream from Tarn Hows. After walking up in the dark the sensible thing would be not to start the meet up here. Having said that, it is well worth the effort and taking a look around this area on your way to Tarn Hows.
Getting a composition in and around Tarn Hows, well its like Luke would say “I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home” it’s not difficult, all depends on what you are looking for. For me this day was all about reflections, the surrounding fells and hopefully some great light to add to the huge amount of compositions I was encountering. Straight away I knew this place is perfect for a meetup! Perfect for Landscape Photography. I’m starting to think the area will be my area to visit many times again over the years, IT’S THAT GOOD!
Then just as you thought it was safe to get your camera out, we got conditions on the second day to weaken the hardened of Landscape Photographers! Extreme wind, NO I’M NOT EXAGGERATING! Over 20 Landscape Photographers headed off into the dark to take on Black Crag in winds to blow your head off! The contrast from the first day was incredible. This didn’t stop us, we had glorious sunrise light albeit brief it was enough to excite and delight! Black Crag is amazing! I’ve got my eye on a few trees and compositions and will return very soon! Look out for Black Crag video coming soon.
