morning mist over Derwent Water

After a few days in the remote Western reaches of the Lake District at Wast Water, we headed back to civilisation, restaurants and the busier shores of Keswick on Derwent Water.

The weather at Derwent was a lot wetter than the first part of our Lake District adventure but I was still able to get up and find some peaceful shots during the calm around dawn, the mist and mountain peaks reflecting in the soft light of a pre-dawn blue hour.

Derwent is a beautiful place to take pictures, even if the weather isn’t perfect all the time and the sunsets are often hidden behind banks of clouds. As often seems to be the way with weather in Cumbria, if you wait a few minutes, even on the dreariest of days, the weather can change and the sun may even pop out for a minute or two! Keswick is also a great base for visits to other great photography spots in the Lakes, including Buttermere and the Castlerigg Stone Circle.
