There is more to explore toward Glenridding, with the south shore quite accessible in places and home to some good photo opportunities. Look for roadside parking and laybys along the A592 and just park up and explore. In this guide, I share plenty of Lake District landscape photography tips to get you started. I’ve also included seven of my favorite locations. Of course, in a place as beautiful as the Lake District, it’s impossible to mention every awe-inspiring view, so I highly recommend you spend some time exploring the area on your own. Although there is the odd parking space at the bottom where the signposted walk for Side Pike begins, you are more likely to find a space in the National Trust car park for Blea Tarn, from where it will take about 10 minutes to walk.

Instead, if you’re unsure about your fitness level, go slow. Start with easy walks and work your way up. Eventually, you might be running up and down mountains – but I don’t recommend you try it at the beginning! 5. Take food and drink whenever you go out The locations include: Lakes, Fells, Valleys, Waterfalls, Cottages & Farmhouses , Woodlands, Rivers, Bridges, Boats, Jetties, Wildlife, Classic Views, Landscapes & Panoramas, Villages, Shows and Events, Historic Houses, Castles & Gardens. However, the reality is that Lake District weather is anything but predictable and, fantastic as it is when we do get the desired weather, the likelihood is that it will be grey, damp, and possibly windy. Don’t let this put you off, though. Many of our best images have been taken either during bad weather, or as light has suddenly broken through dark cloud. I hope my top ten locations for landscape photography in the Lake District will prove a great starting point for when you visit, but this article barely scratches the surface.The climb up Cat Bells may be steep, but it’s absolutely worth it; with superlative views over Derwent Water, Cat Bells offers plenty of opportunities for Lake District landscape photography.

You can park near the cattle grid on the road between Blea Tarn and Great Langdale, although parking is limited to just a few cars. Early morning typically provides the best light here. Listen to no one who tells you there’s a right time of year for landscape photography. Or for that matter, a right time of day. Forget meaningless terms like the golden hour. The ‘right time’ to take a photograph is when you feel able to capture the essence of a scene in the way it feels to you – and frankly, that could be just about any time! The views across the water toward Coniston Old Man are lovely and there are a couple of shapely conifer trees along the shore. Being small and quite sheltered, this is a lovely little spot to visit on blowy days when larger bodies of water are rippled. This hidden gem is particularly photogenic during autumn or on a crisp, frosty morning. 7. Coniston Park in the same area, but this time, instead of following the shoreline path, take the route that forks off to the left. This path leads up onto Loughrigg Fell via Rydal Caves. The views constantly improve as you gain elevation, but it should only take you around 25 to 30 minutes of steady walking to reach the first (lower) plateau of the fell, which gives expansive views over Rydal Water.You can walk along the south western shores of the lake and along the shingle you will find a good mixture of boulders, fences going into the water, gnarly old tree roots as well. The Lake District looks gorgeous at any time of year, but if you only get one shot, then head over during the winter or fall. This beautiful spot offers views galore, and the line of pines at the upper end of the lake are classic, as is the lonely birch tree at the village end of the lake and captured in all moods and weathers.
