Life, "the old familiar" and the trials of being a Landscape photographer.

Hi!

Been a while, so lets get some stuff out of the way as in the "life" part of the title...

Photography despite being my passion has had to take a bit of a back seat this last year or so, the reason? Well my Mum actually, she's now 94 and needs some help on a day to day basis, so I've stepped in to help out as much as I an allow which means there has not been much time for any photography but with that said, all is not lost!

I do get out sometimes! However due to my sciatica giving me some troubles I have to be oh so careful because my ankles keep turning over at will and on a high fell it's not a great idea.  I'm damned if I'm going to end up being a statistic because of it, or for me much much worse, (Think embarrasssing!) to have to trouble the already overstretched rescue services to lift me off somewhere because I've fallen... again!

Like I say I do get out now and again but have to take it easy and follow easier trails nowadays, so we come to the "old familiar" part of the title, Derwentwater, I do very little photography around there and it's just that, "familiarity breeds contempt"! I get the bus into the lakes and every time I do I end up in Keswick, nothing wrong with that but it pretty much is the touristy capital of the Lake District N.P. I'm always just passing thru because of the crowds and off to somewhere less well trodden, in search of that illusive "keeper" shot. Well I had a few hours to spare the other day and it being Autumn and all, I had a bit of a sally around the Keswick side of the Lake from end to end, here in no particular order are some of the results...

And the last part of the title? Trials, well yeah it's never going to make you rich but that doesn't stop me loving it!
