District of Lakes by dansLesprit


Available to buy on…

I took this on New Years Day at Ullswater lake located within the beautiful Lake District, Cumbria, England.

Ulswater is England’s second largest lake & the inspiration for William Wordsworth’s famous “Daffodils” poem. Maybe you remember the verse:

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

There are no daffodis (it was winter) but this is the lake mentioned in the poem.

I could not come up with a good title so I played around with the words of the location.

    It really is a beautiful place. Is it a good place to go walking? I like the way that the tree frames the shot.

  • It is an amazing place to go walking. It shocks a lot of unsuspecting tourist and even English that such scenery exists in England.
