Lakeland bonfire  by happypat

Lakeland bonfire

I have been challenged by Babs @onewing to post three landscape photos over the next three days & challenge three others to do the same!
I am going all Kiwi & nominating @maggiemae, @julzmaioro & @snaphappi to do the same. The landscapes do not need to be taken on the day ....you can use photos taken from your files. Hope this is OK with you all!!
Will look forward to seeing more of NZ hopefully!
Mine was taken on our recent walking day in the Lakes around the Grasmere area.

Three good things:
1. Some good tips re NYC coming from everyone who has been....all very welcome!
2. Watching BBC iPlayer this morning in bed, catching up on The Great Allotment Challenge final with cup of tea & the electric blanket on!
3. Sunday easy meals!
What a stunning view! Looks like a good hike to get there, too!

Wonderful capture of this beautiful scenery.

Just stunning Pat! Relieved that you didn't nominate me - can't think of any landscapes in my collection!
February 8th, 2015  
Beautiful Pat -- beautiful colours from the richness of the bracken in the front to the delightful hues of blue, grey , and purples in the distance --And I love the delightful eye catching puff of smoke on the left -- was it a little steam train or smoke from a chimney ?

@gijsje A wee bit different but your country is just as beautiful Bep.

@quietpurplehaze Ooh thanks for the fave Hazel...always welcome !
February 8th, 2015  
@beryl Btw Beryl.....itlooks like a steam train but as far as I know no train line there so it must be a bonfire or chimney perhaps!
February 8th, 2015  
So beautiful!
February 8th, 2015  
Wow the colours are amazing, love the puff of smoke, orange foreground and the weir. Great landscape shot

What an exceptional view and you have captured it to perfection. Thanks for the challenge Pat. I shall get out and about and see what I can find in the landscape around here.

Very pretty

Gorgeous shot
February 8th, 2015  
I like the bonfire. I thought it was a steam train at first!
February 8th, 2015  
This is supreme! Wonderful water colour and contrast! fav. And i'm up for the challenge!
February 9th, 2015  
A beautiful scene and love the low mist in the hillside. I hope the smoke is from a chimney and not a bush fire. If that was in Australia the fire brigade would be there by now. ha ha.
February 9th, 2015  
@maggiemae Thank you maggiemae......quite a good challenge because you can use some out of your files....I was glad of that on yesterday's foggy day!
February 9th, 2015  
@onewing I expect they would Babs! Occasionally in a really hot summer we have that problem particularly on the fells & the Trough of Bowland but not usually a major problem like you have.
February 9th, 2015  
@bkbinthecity @sabresun Thank you......it would have been great if it had been a steam train!!
February 9th, 2015  
A gorgeous shot with great lighting - thanks for tagging in @julzmaioro …. now she's done the same to me! :) Fav for your lovely landscape.
February 9th, 2015  
CK
Wow, what amazing light and colour, those reds are amazing.
February 9th, 2015  
This is simply gorgeous, Pat! The peaceful lake nestled among the hills makes for a stunning landscape...and the plume of smoke adds wonderful interest. Well done on your Landscape Challenge with this one!

Lovely shot, I like the smoke, it brings the image to life by indicating which way the wind is blowing.
February 9th, 2015

February 9th, 2015  
Stunning! A view to keep looking at.
February 9th, 2015
