The Buttermere Tree

Some say that I am extremely lucky with my landscape photography, and that I always seem to be in the right place at the right time, to get wonderful light for my photographs. However, just to prove them wrong, here's a photograph of one of the most photographed trees in the English Lake District in the truly appalling conditions I encountered this January. I've been seeing shots of the tree, perched ideally on a promontory of the Buttermere shore, for over twenty years; I have to say that I will have to return to make a better job of shooting it another time.
