Lake District Landscapes

I do not know any tract of country in which, within so narrow a compass, may be found an equal variety in the influences of light and shadow upon the sublime or beautiful features of landscape.   — William Wordsworth

Never got into Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit stories, and I’ve always preferred the Romantic sublime of Shelley’s poem Mont Blanc to Wordsworth’s Daffodils. Nevertheless, when R. and I got married in the summer of 2010, we decided to honeymoon in London and the Lake District. And, sure enough, what Keswick and Ambleside, and the surrounding fells and tarns, lacked in ineffable majesty it made up for in “light and shadow”: perfect conditions for a pair of newlywed photographers! Enjoy the slideshow.
