This is picture #13 of a weekly Photo Challenge that I set myself – there is no particular theme. Today’s photo was taken on a walk to Longlands Lake in West Cumbria. For this image, I used a long exposure ‘silky water’ setting on my mobile phone to achieve the glassy effect.
After my walk around Longlands, I headed a short distance along the coast to coast hiking route. It was perfect weather for a walk – no wind, and crisp winter temperatures.
- The coast to coast route begins at St Bees in Cumbria, on the Irish Sea. It crosses the West Cumbrian coastal plain and the Lake District, and enters North Yorkshire as it crosses the Pennines. It then crosses the Yorkshire Dales, the Vale of York and the North York Moors to reach the North Sea coast at Robin Hood’s Bay. The route is 192 miles long.
