The Langdale peaks from the river Brathay by 

Taken with a Canon 50D, Sigma 18-200 lens at 18mm, F11, shutter speed 1/40 second, ISO200, processed in Photoshop

On Sunday I went for a walk with some friends around the Elterwater area of the Lake District. It was a beautiful, cold, mid autumn day with a very slight chilly breeze. The view is of the river Brathay in the foreground and the Langdale peaks in the distance.

Taken from Wikipedia
The Brathay is a river of north-west England. Its name comes from Old Norse and means broad river. It rises at a point 1289 feet (393 m) above sea level near the Three Shire Stone at the highest point of Wrynose Pass in the Lake District. Its catchment area includes the northern flanks of Wetherlam, Great Carrs and others of the Furness Fells, as well as a substantial area of the Langdale Fells.

    Another cracker of a shot Shaun. Love the glimpses of shade hitting the lower ends of the mountains and the light is so nice and strong elsewhere. The colours are nice and vibrant and the reflections are subtle and smooth
