Ludlow sunset

Taken this evening. Sorry, we don’t have a lake in Ludlow like the one in Keswick.

Taken from the side of the castle that overlooks the Teme facing across to Whitcliff, but in this instance I turned almost due West for obvious reasons. I really like the natural frame provided by the leaves, though it’s probably a gambit I use too often.

And here’s Mortimer’s Tower, on the same side of the castle, catching the last of the sun.

Sunset, Derwentwater

Some views of Derwentwater around sunset.

And another. The first time I went to Keswick there was much less boating activity on Derwentwater, and I kind of missed that, but at the end of the day there are plenty of  directions to point a camera without including a boat. And I must admit, it’s a long way to walk right round. (So we didn’t!)

And another (with boats) looking away from the sunset, over to Derwent Isle and Cat Bells.

And one looking further South towards Borrowdale.

I don’t usually use the ‘artistic’ settings on my little compact, but didn’t notice the dial had moved till I’d taken the shot. Instead of trying for a more natural shot later, I used a Photoshop watercolour filter and rather liked the effect.

It’s the Dee at Kirkcudbright, with MacLellan’s Castle in the background.
