Taken during a weekend in the Lake District with friends. I’ve always loved the Lake District but since becoming interested in photography I have grown to like it more and more each time with every visit. I wish the rest of my family shared my enthusiasm – they seem to find it a little too wet though unfortunately.
The sun wasn’t really in a favourable position for this shot, and the composition reflects this – I kept the sun well above the top of the frame to get the best exposure possible. As I was concious of how difficult a shot this was going to be to get right, given the extremes of light, I only rattled off one shot – I also wasn’t helped by the 5D LCD being almost impossible to review shots on in daylight. Fortunately though the camera was more than capable :)
