Nick Jenkins | Blencathra in Winter Lake District National Park

Blencathra in Winter Lake District National Park

Blencathra in Winter in the Lake District National Park Cumbria. This was the sight that confronted me as I rounded the corner into St John's in the Vale - full on Blencathra (or Saddleback) in white winter garb. I took several shots of this as I might never see it quite like this again.

Langdale Pikes and Bowfell from above the Great Langdale Valley

Langdale Pikes and Bowfell from above the Great Langdale Valley Lake District on a summer day with varying light. I took the winding and hilly road up to Red Bank Youth Hostel, and walked up the slopes of Silver How to get the view to open up better for me, and it did! I waited for a while to try and catch the sunlight on the nearest ridge and my patience finally paid off. For me the Langdale Valley is one of the most dramatic (if a little busy in holiday season) valleys in the National Park.
Nick Jenkins | Up the Great Langdale Valley to Bowfell Lake District

Up the Great Langdale Valley to Bowfell Lake District

Looking up the Great Langdale Valley to Bowfell in the Lake District National Park in winter with snow on the tops. By adding a long lens to the camera I was able to bring these mountains closer and make them look even grander than they already are. The shot was taken from the valley bottom looking straight ahead up the valley itself.

Langdale Pikes in the Lake District National Park

Langdale Pikes in the Lake District National Park seen from Blea Tarn on a mixed weather winter day. For two days before this was taken it had rained buckets but this was the prize - shot on the third day in the afternoon and I waited for the sun to light up the tree on the right. Sometimes it pays to go on visiting - you never know!
Nick Jenkins | Lake Windermere at Low Miller Ground Lake District

Lake Windermere at Low Miller Ground Lake District

Lake Windermere at Low Miller Ground Lake District on a sunny May afternoon. The whole National Park was granted UNESCO World Heritage Status in 2017 and has so much to offer but, at the end of a busy day I really love to retreat to this spot and just take in the views on offer. It is relatively undiscovered and provides a great bolthole from the masses of visitors milling around Bowness and Ambleside.
Nick Jenkins | Esthwaite Water in early Summer

Esthwaite Water in early Summer

Esthwaite Water in the Lake District National Park, Cumbria, with a rowing boat in the foreground. Currently Esthwaite Water is the only privately owned lake in the Lake District and is also relatively unfrequented. It is, perhaps known, as the home for some ospreys, and also has fishing facilities available. Although close to the popular village of Hawkshead it offers peace and tranquility as well as some beautiful views, towards Sawrey and down to the higher fells.
Nick Jenkins | Evening on Lake Windermere Lake District

Evening on Lake Windermere Lake District

Evening on Lake Windermere in the Lake District with two moored yachts and a sunset. Windermere of an evening can throw up all sorts of surprises if you are prepared to be patient but this absolutely bowled me over! I waited to see what would develop and when I was 'happy' with what I saw I fired away. I have framed the shot to seek to give equal spaces between the golden clouds at the top and their reflection at the bottom.
