Crummock Water is a lake in the Lake District in Cumbria, North West England situated between Buttermere to the south and Loweswater to the north. Crummock Water is 2.5 miles long, 0.75 mile wide and 140 feet deep.

Looking across Derwent Water from it's southern shore in the Lake District National Park, England to the southern flanks of Skiddaw (3054ft - 931mtrs)

 

The lake occupies part of Borrowdale and lies immediately south of the town of Keswick. It is both fed and drained by the River Derwent. It measures approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) long by 1 mile (1.6 km) wide and is some 72 feet (22 m) deep. There are several islands within the lake, one of which is inhabited. Derwent Island House, an 18th-century residence, is a tenanted National Trust property open to the public on five days each year. (wiki)

Obviously there are no water lilies in this shot. I'm calling it this because of Monet's famous attempt to capture the water lilies in his garden after his eyesight started to go. My eyesight isn't going (yet), but I have come back to this bridge many, many times to capture it in just the right way. I'm often satisfied with the shot, but I always feel like there's something missing. This shot was a bit different. First of all, I was on the opposite side of the bridge (from where I normally shoot it). Secondly, I intentionally overexposed for effect. This is a 4 minute exposure with an 11 stop ND filter. I really wanted to get a "pastel" look to the shot, and have a very bright, high-key horizon. The colors at the time were just exceptional. This is the first time shooting the bridge with my Nikon and the excellent (should I say awesome) 18-35 G lens. I love this lens because it takes my 77mm filters. Both of my ultrawides before didn't take filters. Yes, 18mm isn't as wide as 14mm, but it's plenty wide on a full-frame camera. Anyhow, I was pleased with this result. 4 minute 3 second exposure, ISO 50, f/10, 22mm, Nikon d750.

Plenty of water flowing into Wast Water.

So... I decided to take a trip up to Wasdale earlier today.

This is my favourite spot of all the Lake District. The views here are simply stunning...

Much needed time to reflect... Clear my mind and get things into perspective.

This waterfall drops onto the beach near Devil's Punch Bowl in Oregon. I have no idea what the falls are called, if you know, let me know. I wish I had an image of me taking this shot, because it was raining, I was balancing on rocks to keep from getting wet, and I had a umbrella over my the tripod, which also had water rushing past it. The whole scene was funny, but I wanted to get an image and I was not going to let the weather beat me. Not sure I won.

some more shots from the water series...

Waves pouring over the sea wall of Portknockie harbour in Morayshire, Scotland.

Magical things happen when you add water. Water helps creates energy and motion and adds a bit of something special. I got drenched playing in the water but feel alive and happy. I am hoping you can find a little magic moment in your day as well!

This is a location that I like to shoot, the light changes so frequently that it is never the same twice. Noddsdale Water flows into the Firth of Clyde.

 

This shot was taken using a long exposure to help enhance the reflections.
