Buttermere Walk

Lake Buttermere in the Lake District National Park, Cumbria, UK. Laura and I enjoyed the scenery as we walked the relatively easy but beautiful 4.5 mile trail around the lake. The north end of the lake is lined with some large and graceful oak trees, however Laura was quite ammused to learn that this small and scraggly tree is what I was interested in photographing. I was determined to get a workable photo even with with constant 20 mph winds and 40 mph gusts, it was just a matter of waiting long enough to get the right light on the shore grasses. Luckily Laura found a nice pub and glass of wine in the pub nearby while she waited on me. Single 60s exposure, tripod using Fuji X-E2s with Fujinon XF-R 16-55 f2.8 WR lens, 10 stop + 3 stop ND filters.
