Images of .... Rydal Water

Rydal Water is one of the smaller lakes in the English Lake District, located in the centre of the National Park, near the hamlet of Rydal.  The poet William Wordsworth lived in this area and drew inspiration from the beautiful scenery.




 Above the lake are caves, remains of old quarry workings.

  9. Amazing scenery. No wonder Wordworth felt inspired here. I love all of these but the cave reflection is just stunning.

  10. Just taken a peep. I have to say these photos look like they were taken by a different person from the 'Saltaire' lady. You should feel pretty pleased with these; well done (I'm not being patronising).

  11. Beautiful, all of them. I have always wanted to go to the lake district but I don't think it will happen. These lovely images show me what I am missing.

  12. Magic photos. What type of camera do you have? You have a natural photographer's eye.

  13. Oh these are wonderful photos. I'm kind of going backwards. I've been visiting your Saltaire Blog and then came over here to look for Vicki's comment but got waylaid by these fantastic photos.
