My brother Neil has posted some of his photos of Cumbria and many of them were taken at Derwentwater, one of the many lakes in the Lake District, and so far, my favorite. There’s something about the atmosphere of this lake that just captured my heart. I’ve never been there on a nice day, only when it’s cold and grey. But I wonder if it doesn’t look nicer on those kinds of days … there’s something about the way the clouds hang over the top of the mountains that just feels mystical. I think that, in future years, this will be a spot I’ll visit over and over again.
These are my favorites of Neil’s photos:
And here’s a photo Phil took last year that now hangs on our bathroom wall:
Since I can’t go have a walk there whenever I get stressed out, I look for videos on Youtube instead and I think this very short clip captures some of the atmosphere:
