Wast Water, Lake District by John Wood

Archant

A beautiful part of the Lake District that is an inspiration for photographers

The valley of Wasdale is a photographers dream, award winning photographer Mark Gilligan recently won the Amazing Moments section in the Landscape Photographer of the Year with his photo of Wastwater.

Wasdale is a place of extremes, Wastwater is the deepest lake in England, while Scafell Pike at the head of the valley is the the highest peak.

Wastwater is a great place to capture from a variety of viewpoints and the juxtaposition of the peak in the background of your shot allows you to get that picture postcard shot of the Lakes.

Visiting at different times of the day can also greatly vary your results, the extremes from sunrise to sunset, will mean that you’ll probably visit wasdale more than once to capture that perfect shot.

Why don’t you upload your Wasdale photos to the reader photo gallery?
