Lake Windermere

I saw three ships/boats

I have decided to choose this picture from those submitted by the members of Curly’s Corner Shop Message Board (which now hosts over 188,000 posts), it was taken by local businessman John France at Lake Windermere in the Lake District, hoping that he doesn’t mind me pushing his original through Photoshop to create this composite.

Of  his original shot John said:

“I took this picture in the fog on the edge of Lake Windermere at White Cross Bay, I took a few pics from the shore but for this one  I walked to the end of a jetty and I found the effect of only the boats and the water in the pic all the more peaceful.
White Cross Bay is very popular for kayaks and other water sports but fortunately for me it was quite early in the day
and the lake was calm and mirror like,which helped the atmosphere of the photograph enormously.
I almost forgot I took the pic on my mobile phone (nokia 97) goes to show how much mobile technology has come, don’t you think ?”

We certainly agree John, but hope the shock of this new look doesn’t cause too much upset.

Camera details: Nokia N97, 5.4mm lens, 1/1000 second, f2.8, iso100
