Last Light on Waswater Screes and Scafell

Wasdale and Waswater with its dramatic mountain backdrop is seen by many as the most spectacular part of the Lake District. It is a difficult area to access which has helped keep the area unspoilt. The Wasdale Screes fall dramatically straight into one of the areas deepest lakes. Scafell is the Lake Districts second highest mountain but for many is the regions quintessential climbers peak surounded as it is on three sides by sheer cliffs with a host of classic climbs and scrambles. This shot was a lucky break in an otherwise cloudy and dull evening. A polarising filter allows reflection on the water surface to be reduced so revealing the rocks below.
