Your Shot Winner: Lake District, UK

Winning entry in our ‘Your Shot’ photo competition, captured in the Lake District, UK.

“This shot was taken whilst on holiday visiting our family in the UK, in spring last year.

It was taken on a walk around beautiful Lake Buttermere in the English Lake District of Cumbria. 

We visited the UK in the wettest year since records began (and the wettest month), but we were so very lucky to have perfect weather that day to enable me to get this shot.

I used a Canon 550D and 18-55mm lens at 18mm, ISO 100, F8, 1/200 sec.”
