A summer trip to the Lake District seemed like a good opportunity for a wild camp to photograph a view of Wast Water and Scafell Pike, although it didn’t quite go to plan.
One of the most challenging aspects of being a landscape photographer is judging the success of your own work. I was reminded of this conflict during a trip to Snowdonia to photograph Cadair Idris.
In autumn last year I visited the Lake District for four days. It was a brief visit but I planned to pack in as much photography as possible. The last time I’d photographed the fells was four years prior so I was really looking forward to being back, particularly to see the autumn colours.
