Lake District Workshop - day 1 Tarn Hows

At the beginning of November I went on a workshop with Doug Chinnery based in the Lake District. It was a great 2 days where I learnt some and was able to selfishly indulge my photography. There were only 4 of us, including Doug who gave us all masses of attention.
The first day we met at the Tarn Hows car park at 6.00am. I had booked into a B&B in Keswick and it was a forty minute journey down to Tarn Hows on the coldest night of the year so far and I had to scrape the frost from the windshield before starting out. The satnav seemed to have planned my journey around the narrowest roads but I got there for 6.00 and the cold night led into a bright and sunny day. Dawn was gentle as there were few clouds in the sky but the morning light was beautiful. We must have spent 5 hours around the Tarn and here are a few of the pictures. I am not entirely happy with them and have spent the whole of November in search of a good autumn shot. They were all taken on the Nikon D800e with mainly the 24-70mm zoom. I had just received some new Lee graduated filters as my old HiTech ones were completely scratched and marked, and I enjoyed using these. I still had the old Hitech filter holder which was extremely tight on the Lee filters making it a struggle to insert them. After battling with this system for a couple of weeks I have now bought the Lee filter holder as well and they slide in and out like a dream.

This one was taken with my pinhole lens
