Ashness Bridge by pamknowler

Ashness Bridge

One of the most photographed bridges in the Lake District with a view of Keswick in the valley. There we were six photographers with our tripods standing in the fast flowing river to get the best position for this image. Carefully balanced on the rocks trying to avoid ending up in the water. And then along comes a lady walker who sits on the wall of the bridge looking away from us down into the valley. She opened her picnic and started to eat completely oblivious of the six of us waiting to take our shot!! Annoying but very funny. This has happened many times when I have been about to take a photo and someone walks right in front and stands looking at the view. Patience is a virtue we need to practise as a photographer. LOL!
Ah another of my favourite places at the other end of Derwentwater! We have walked here many times. Delightful shot. How bizarre about the picnic lady!!

Lovely bridge and lovely scene. I had to chuckle about the picnicking lady, very odd. I think you need to be a photographer to appreciate how annoying it is when people just stand looking.

Terrific shot! Sometimes it's hard to "compete" with all the other photogs and find a unique shot, but this is lovely
