Kendal Parish Church, dedicated to the Holy Trinity is a large Anglican church in the centre of Kendal, seen here from the opposite side of the River Kent. The centre aisle is 800 years old and in its heyday, a congregation of 1100 was regularly accommodated. Due to the over cast weather on the day I visited Kendal and the style of architecture I felt that the final photograph looked better in black and white.
Although this is very similar to a previously published photograph of Tarn Hows, I could decide which one I preferred and in the end had to share both. This one has the rippling water effect much closer to the camera and a more even distribution of light. I had to wait a couple of minutes for a dog to get out of the water as I wanted the landscape free of distractions.
After taking the main symmetrical photograph of Coniston Pier at dawn I decided to try some alternative angles, because I don’t like getting up so early just for one photograph! Well most of my “experiments” were pretty disastrous and have been subsequently deleted but I liked this one enough to want to share it. The three posts seem to lead the eye across the water to the two boats of the far side of Coniston Water. Looking at the final photograph closely I probably should have noticed the small distracting details on the horizon line far left and to the right of the boats, the could have easily and quickly been cloned out.
Elter Water is a small lake or tarn in the valley of Great Langdale in the Lake District National Park. Despite being so small (in comparison to Windermere or Coniston Water) I found it well worth the visit. Sadly due to time constraints this was pretty much the only photograph I captured of the lake that afternoon, but I hope to return one day and possibly walk around the the tarn.
