Photographer's Note

Yesterday was the first time in 2006 that I used the camera. We set off to cross the Pennines (the mountain range running down the centre of England) to the Lake District National Park in Cumbria in the northwest. Objective: - a new pair of hiking boots from George Fisher’s in Keswick (arguably the best shop for boots in Northern England). Also it was a good excuse to go to one of the most picturesque places in England, and of course you don’t go to the Lakes without a camera.
Instead of going directly to Keswick we took a side trip to Lake Ullswater because I wanted to take photos of Aira Falls, which is just off the road, which runs alongside the lake. From the car park it’s about ˝ mile walk.
We went to the top first and I include a shot from there in the WS. When we got to the bottom it was difficult to keep the camera out of the spray. Although the light was not directly on the falls it made it difficult to get the exposure right, but we were rewarded with a rainbow. I wanted a slow shutter speed to soften the water. After several attempts the top was over-exposing so I put the ND grad on.
