Shoot the Iconic Buttermere

Shoot the Iconic Buttermere - Buttermere Lake in the Lake District is one of the most picturesque and iconic locations for landscape photography. This day begin with a visit with my vlogging buddy Chris Sale, meeting up at the famous lone tree.

There were also another couple of photographers lining up to take this iconic image of the tree, looking South East with the fells beyond.

The conditions were not favourable that day for photography but the blue skies and warm Autumnal sunshine was beautiful and added to a very enjoyable day.

I find various compositions with my wide angle and telephoto lens as I make myself around the lake. I later meet up with Mali Davies, another fellow vlogger and one of the biggest characters in the YouTube landscape photography community.

We head up to Haystacks, a fell made famous as it is the place where Alfred Wainwrights ashes are scattered, the famous writer/illustrator of the Lake District.

The conditions remain the same throughout the day. Cloudless skies are no friend to a landscape photographer but still I come away with some good images of a very memorable day spent with good company.
