'The' Buttermere Tree

Well @merrelyn, I did make the effort and get up early today! The tree at the north end of Buttermere is notoriously popular with photographers and two of them got there before me today, which is why the subject is smack bang central - they were occupying the patch to the right!
Flipping photographers- always in the way. šŸ˜

Wow, you were up early! Fabulous shot, aren't they a pain these photographers?!

Well worth getting up early for, a serene shot..

Too bad about those "other" photographers but this sure looks like a lovely spot! This is great in B&W. Very nice image. I guess you will just have to get up a bit earlier:)

That tree sure must be popular to have three photographers there at one time! I think it looks lovely smack bang in the middle, the rule of thirds is always confuses me anyway

One beautiful lone tree in the foreground & then my eye is drawn to the wonderful vista you have captured.....jolly photographers can be a pain..Ha-Ha,

Another wonderful landscape. Looks great in black and white.

@yorkshirekiwi @countrylassie @joannakate @365karly1 @suzanne234 @happysnaps @purdey Thanks all.I shall probably post a couple of other views from the walk - it was a grey day, but there's always something :) ...Oh, and there's a great coffee shop in Buttermere by the old church.

Lovely capture Graham, I rather like the lone tree in the middle of the shot. I hope you're not expecting an early morning shot from me in return. The sun rises at 5.23 tomorrow and I know where I intend to be at that time :))

@merrelyn Haha!! No ...it was not a challenge. Thanks for commenting :)

Great B&W landscape Graham. Barring any health issues arising, we will be heading over to the UK in April/May. We were in The Lakes District about 20 years ago but have never made it back there since despite numerous trips to the UK. Your landscape photos have now lit the fire that says we will head back there for a few days on this next trip regardless. And we will have a few days in the Dales as well, regardless. :-)
@merrelyn And I don't know what all this talk about early mornings is all about. Awake at 4:30 and up at 5 today which is pretty much my standard start to the day.

@terryliv Not for Terry, Iā€™m a night person, rarely in bed before midnight šŸ˜Š

@terryliv Good to hear that you'll be re-visiting my neck of the woods. Maybe we could meet up! I'll keep an eye on your 365 images :)

Great shot. It might be breaking the rules, but having the tree in the middle of the shot works brilliantly.

Ha this reminds me of a tree here in NZ at Wanaka .. no matter when you go there are photographers in the way..

@josiegilbert Thanks Josie, I nearly walked on by, but now I like it! @julzmaioro I googled the tree at Wanaka, it's beautiful and I missed that when I was there. Too long spent in the Cinema I think ;-)

http://365project.org/julzmaioro/365/2015-07-18 This is my version of the Wanaka Tree.. nice to hear that you knew where I was talking about .. it is a beautiful part of NZ.. The day we were there along with many other photographers ... we heard a 'plop' in the water and a young girl had dropped her lens ( though possibly her fathers) in the lake ..

@julzmaioro "... we heard a 'plop' in the water ". Oh dear! Don't you hate it when that happens ;-)
