I just had to make the best of it , first stop was at a very flat calm Grasmere, superb reflections but after waiting for over an hour i knew there was no chance of any decent light! i did shoot these few shots for the reflections but really needed a bit of sun to light up the colours.
I then took a scenic drive around Buttermere but it was quite dull and breezy! Waste of time actually but a good drive! lol i did take a snapshot of the buttermere pines to to post here.
I then stopped off at thirlmere, the dam end was perfectly flat calm, but again no decent light :( bummer!
And a good reflections close up :)
shot with 100mm L macro lens
This was the last of of a quite disappointing day, i did get a few nice reflection shots but there will always be another trip with better light!
all shots taken with canon 5d2, 17-40L and 100mm L macro.
