The Lake District Wakes Up

In recent weeks the Lake District has really started to come alive again. Not just because of the number of people milling around on any giving, but also the days are getting longer, the weather’s getting drier, temperatures are getting warmer, and there is an explosion of colour.

This shot was taken from Fell Foot Park, a little country park right by the southern shore of Windermere. It was once a Victorian garden estate, now owned and managed by the National Trust since 1948. We came across a small patch of Rhododendrons with their pretty petals littering the ground beneath them. These Rhododendrons are due to be removed in order to restore a viewpoint higher up in the park, so you won’t see this sort of composition here for much longer.
