My wife Liz and I have spent a few long weekends in the Lake District, and the region is never more beautiful than in autumn, as the trees start to shed their leaves in preparation for the cold winter months to come.
It's easy to find lovely landscapes here, but some views are extra special.
One such is the view out towards Derwentwater from the tiny old stone arch packhorse bridge, Ashness Bridge, with its bubbling stream tumbling down over rocks and under the bridge itself.
Mind you, getting a good angle for a photo can be a bit of a challenge, involving rock hopping out into the middle of the flow, plonking your tripod down in the stream and perching yourself on a slippery rock to make the most of the views on offer.
But what's life without a little risk from time to time?
