    One of the most fabolous mornings i ever had. Waking up at 4:30 in the morning in a bed&breakfast which was once an old school house in Windermere. 10 Minutes walk. Find a perfect spot at the lake. wait and just stare, and while staring at the scenery (and freezing) clicking on the remote of the camera. Come back to the b&b and have an amazing english breakfast and start a tour to the other lakes around. Just perfect.  Lake Windermere, Lake District, England @lakedistrict.uk #lakedistrict #lakedistrictnationalpark #cumbria #england #britain #nationalparksuk #greatbritain #unitedkingdom #northengland #mountains #lakes #hiking #walking #thefells #kayaking #wildswimming #mountaineering #windermere #lakedistrictuk #fromlakelandwithlove #uk_shooters #ukpotd #ukscenery #greatgable #mountain_world #moodygrams #lensbible5k #agameof10k #wildernessculture #optoutside

    ↟Ashness Bridge↟ Ashness Bridge on a cold and windy day. Suppose to be the most photographed bridge in the Lake District. You can see why with the views looking out onto skiddaw. I had no idea you could park at the top either so we climbed walla crag from great wood car park and then carried on the walk to the bridge. . . . . #lakedistrict #thelakelanders #fromlakelandwithlove #ashnessbridge #hikingthelakes #lakesography #skiddaw #autumn #woodland #ukhikers #ukshooters #ukshots #ukpotd #gloriousbritain #uk_greatshots #ukscenery #igerslakedistrict #nationaltrust #photography #landscape #landscapephotography #landscape_lovers #moodygrams #moodnation #moodyphotography #moodynaturelandscapes #scenicbritain #rsa_outdoors #agameoftones #rural_love

    Monday morning looking down into what I believe is Newlands Beck area with some incredible low lying mist at sunrise. After being woken up by my alarm that was actually still set from weekend at 5 am, I decided to make the most of it and this was my choice of location 🙋🏻‍♂️ - - - - #lifeisbeautiful #earthcapture #ournaturedays #getoutstayout #catbells #wanderingsoul #exploringbritain #earth_shotz #united_kingdom #ig_color #ig_myshots #everything_imaginable #mist_vision #tree_enthusiast #tree_magic #lakedistrict #sonyimages #insta_britain #britains_talent #createcommune #telephotolens #roamtheplanet #countryfile #bbctravel #lakeland_shooters #gloriousbritain #uk_photooftheday #hikingadventures #lake.district
