Artist's Description

Taken with a Canon 50D, Sigma 10-20 lens at 10mm, F11, shutter speed 1/30 second, ISO200, tweaked in Photoshop

Another shot from my recent trip to the English Lake District, the shot was taken last Friday morning when there was not a breath of wind, amazing to see!

Esthwaite Water is one of the smaller and lesser known lakes in the Lake District national park in northern England. It is situated between the much larger lakes of Windermere and Coniston Water, in the traditional county of Lancashire; since 1974 in the administrative county of Cumbria. To the north is the village of Hawkshead and to the west is Grizedale Forest.

The lake covers around 280 acres (1.1 km2) and is known for its excellent fishing, particularly trout and pike. It has been designated as a site of special scientific interest.

The lake was mentioned as the location where William Wordsworth conversed with a friend in Wordsworth’s poem, “Expostulation and Reply”; part of Wordsworth’s Lyrical Ballads. Wordsworth also mentions it in his Prelude of 1805 at line 570: “From Esthwaite’s neighbouring lake the splitting”
