Photographer's Note

Keswick is a popular little town in the northern part of the Lake District National Park. It’s packed with good places to stay, places to buy your outdoor gear and in easy reach of many of the popular sights. Its popularity is also because it is situated on Lake Derwentwater and close to some excellent fell walking. Derwentwater is not one of the quieter lakes as you can hire rowing boats or take a cruise on a launch. It is 3 mi (4.8 km) long and 1 mi (1.6 km) wide. It's only a short walk from the town to the lake. 10 minutes at the very most.

It wasn’t easy to decide where the horizontal is, as there are islands in the lake and on the right the perspective lines are bringing the edge round for the end of the lake. There is a fairly long strip in the middle where the water-line is horizontal.

If you look at the map and zoom in you can even see the boats. The marker is fairly close to where I was standing and you will also see how the edge of the lake is starting to curve round at this point. If you keep zooming out you will see how close Keswick is to Buttermere, Crummock Water and Loweswater from my previous posts.
