The Photographer’s Guide to The Lake District

Discover the top photography locations in The Lake District with this detailed guide book.

The Lake District is one of the most beautiful parts of the UK, with a varied landscape of lakes, tarns, fells and waterfalls. There’s so much on offer it’s often hard to decide where to focus your efforts – this guide shows you the finest photo locations along with when to go for the best light and crucially how to get there. With so much packed into a small area there’s plenty to see, but along with the classic locations there are also plenty of hidden gems and less well-known areas to explore.

This book covers the following areas: The Langdales, Coniston, Ambleside & Windermere, Grasmere & Rydal, Ullswater, Keswick & Borrowdale, Buttermere & Crummock Water and Wasdale, Eskdale & The Duddon Valley.
