The story behind this image

A hidden gem of a place that my wife Liz and I had never seen before our long weekend break in England's Lake District at the end of July 2020.

This is Watendlath Tarn, a small lake set in rolling farmland at the end of a very long and winding single track road leading up from Derwent Water and past Ashness Bridge.

Liz and I ended up spending quite some time here, walking the path around the lake and on up into the hills with, of course, lots of photographs en route featuring this quintessentially British countryside landscape.

This image features a sunlit tree by the lakeshore, a shot I had to wait five minutes to get as the sun played hide and seek behind the passing clouds.
