This is a 15 minute exposure with a Lee Big Stopper to try and flatten out the water, I couldn’t get the same composition as my previous attempt here because of the high water level (I would have been up to my neck in water).
Brothers Water is in the Hartsop valley and is a small lake in the eastern region of the English Lake District, in the county of Cumbria. Once called Broad Water, it lies at the northern end of Kirkstone Pass, affording picturesque views on the descent towards Patterdale. Dorothy Wordsworth, having left William sitting on Cow Bridge, walked beside the lake on 16 April 1802, delighted with ‘…the boughs of the bare old trees, the simplicity of the mountains, and the exquisite beauty of the path…the gentle flowing of the stream, the glittering, lively lake, green fields without a living creature to be seen on them.’ The lake is not among the most popular of the National Park, being shallow and full of reeds. Water lilies bloom in July, providing colour. The name Broad Water was changed in the 19th century after two brothers drowned there.
