Lake District reflections

I thought I would share some Lake District reflections on this warm and bright sunny day. So, quite literally, here are some mirror images which display the tranquil and mesmerising beauty of the Lakes. The first two photos were taken by Tony Richards.

Now here is a stunning image of trees and clouds reflected in the waters of Thirlmere, a manmade lake situated on the A591. Thirlmere is a reservoir, which water is piped to homes in Manchester City. Visitors to the Lakes may also canoe and fish on Thirlmere.

Lakeland’s deepest lake is Wastwater, which attracts divers for deep diving. At the bottom of Wastwater is a gnome garden, supposedly at beyond 50 metres in depth. Meanwhile, on the surface may be seen some very green reflections of luxuriant flora.

Glorious days are, of course, meant for enjoyment when one is out and about in the Lakes. How about taking a ferry ride on a historic steamer on Ullswater? The hull of this professionally restored steamer is clearly defined in the blue waters of the Lake District’s second largest lake.

Another way of experiencing some of the Lake District’s history is to visit its historic homes. Shown below is Sizergh Castle, perfectly reflected in its garden pond.

Cumbria Tourism would have us all believe that the Lake District is the adventure capital of England. I am not sure I quite concur but there are certainly lots of activities to enjoy in this picturesque area. How about boating on one of its numerous lakes?

Isn’t this a fantastic photo of Grasmere Lake? Two canoeists row in the still deep silence of a glassy lake which reflects the amazing colours of its surroundings. (Photo courtesy of http://www.cumbriaphoto.co.uk.)

If, however, you prefer something less strenuous, why not consider a day out by a lake simply to enjoy the scenery and perhaps taking a picnic along? Imagine sitting by the banks of Loughrigg in this halcyon scene as you eat some lunch.

See what the Lord has created for our enjoyment! What a gorgeous picture of beautiful Loughrigg Tarn. Tony Richards, the photographer has to be congratulated roundly for this fantastic study of the Lake. (Photo courtesy of www.visitcumbria.com/amb/loughrigg-tarn.htm)

When on holiday, there is nothing as restful as sitting about to just be. For most of us, life is fraught with things to be done yesterday! A quiet break in the Lake District will hopefully rest the spirit and rejuvenate one’s joie de vivre. So, if you have a little time to spare and a desire to get away, do come and visit us in the Lake District. A break at our peaceful guest house may just be the perfect antidote for rushed and busy lives.
