Hawes End, Derwent Water

Posted by
John Leech (Grange-over-Sands, United Kingdom) on 12 March 2014 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I met up with Ian Bramham last Saturday for a joint shoot around the Lake District. We visited some old haunts, all worth reviewing in different conditions - plus Hawes End on Derwent Water which was a first time visit for Ian. It is one of my favourite spots with an old deciduous wood running down to the water's edge. The water was high in the lake, the usual rocks all below the surface, branches which have previously been above or skimming the water taking a dip below.

I have photographed this branch before on a calm day, but on this visit tried a long exposure as it waved in strong winds. I'm pleased with how the images is a mix of motion blur and sharp detail - at first glance appearing to be limited depth of field.
