Another shoot in which I produced a variety of rural landscape images was during my visit to Thirlmere. Again, this was a rather large water source that supplies the North West with water.
Thirlmere is a location I’ve visited on multiple occasions, often when staying in the Lake District. Generally, it one of the quieter spaces in this area and at times was difficult to photograph due to limited parking spots or clearings.
However, during United Utilities recent changes to Thirlmere in a effort to boost its tourism, there has been a significant increase in its public accessibility through an increase of parking areas.
From this, I developed a variety of different compositions following different sides of the lake. Both cloudy and sunny in different intervals, lead to concentrated breaks in the clouds, encouraging a definitive light sources that highlighted different elements of the frame. In this, I tried to represent its geology, scale and flow.
Overall, I feel that this was a successful shoot for developing landscape images.
I will update my progress.
