Cumbria, England

Wast Water -- Brooding and sublime,  the deepest lake in Britain is seen in the familiar northward stance, which has become the emblematic view of the entire Lake District. Hoping for a glorious sunrise over Great Gable, I beat the summer crowds from Windermere to get here at half past six, only to be greeted with rain. The original shot was a blotch of gray, which portrayed the mood of the place rather well, but demanded a bit of work in Photoshop  to salvage the image.  I couldn't just toss it; this is one of my favourite spots on earth, beckoning me to return year after year.  

This photo is taken with the Kodak DC200 digital camera.
