And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour."

I'm Back!

Just got back from a few days in the Lake District. Have you missed me? No, I thought not!
Weather was very mixed but we managed to visit quite a few places so I will post some photos over the next few days although my camera really struggled with the low light so none of the photos are particularly brilliant!

Had a lovely time thanks Dean. Yes, its really beautiful there - probably my favourite part of England.

Thanks Pete! Worked hard for that view photo -what seemed like an almost vertical ascent made me realise just how unfit I am :D

Welcome home and glad you had a good time :D Views and your pics of them are great.

Thanks for the welcome Tricia and kind comment about the views. To be honest I was disappointed with a lot of the photos. The light was really low most of the time and I got round that by increasing the ISO but the automatic exposure didn't work well with the landscape shots and I had to use exposure compensation which then over exposed the sky! The experience made me realise even more how little I know of photography :D I am going to have to venture into the great unknown of the manual settings, I think, just as Pete would advise :D
