Just Sharing Ullswater

I have just got back from a weekends photography trip. First proper one in a long time. other then a failed one a few months back to weals where the camera only cam out my bag once, this was first trip in over a year.

I really struggled the whole weekend. The light was not really on my side. all very pleasant and chocolate boxy or just overly flat. I struggled with the walking, I got halfway up mountain and had to turn back as I was about dead a few miles in. And I just didn't really know what to do and where to be.
In the past on a trip I usually managed to get into a rythm and work with the conditions and feel productive for the whole time I'm there. This time was just a struggle.

I have had a quick glance over my captures from the weekend and possible have couple that will get properly edited and I can say im vaguely happy with. but yeah think its going to be a while till I get my feet back under the table again.

I did get chance to christen my new lenses though. and am happy with their performances and I do scout a new location that I think will be promising for a future trip. so it was not all bad, just a bit meh.

(often when the togging isn't going well I usually console myself with the fact that I had a good walking holiday, but I can't say that this time as I just found it too hard to carry my grear around. amazing how quick strength can be lost. hope it comes back...)

but yes for what its worth, here's an image from near where I was camping. A nice view over the Ullswater.....

I like the tones in this one as well as the contrast between the light and shade in along the distance hills.

Looks like a nice spot Steve. For training I recommend going on short walks during the week with your full pack, it helps for the longer trips.

Like the colours and tone, and would make a good postcard shot for the area (not meant as an insult!!)
