Sunrises are usually my preferable time to be out with my camera. The light and conditions can often prove to be better and most importantly, there’s often little to no people around. This time I was at Whinlatter Forest at sunrise.

These shots were taken on a beautiful sunrise walk up to Lords’s Seat in the Forest. This was our first proper trip to Whinlatter with a camera and time to stop and take photos. It was a hazy morning, with some morning dew creating a nice ambiance around the woodland. Once you reach the viewpoint, the mixture of clouds and light make for some great views across the Lake District. The walk is a relatively short one too, taking only around 3 hours from start to finish. It has a great range of views down the Catbells towards the South, Westernly views across the Whitehaven and moody thick forest.


A few of these pictures below are available as prints in my print shop but if you would like any others printing, just let me know and I’ll be happy to organise it.
