There are some places where the tread of photographers feet must be a major cause of erosion. The shore of Buttermere to the south of Crag Wood is just such a location.
It’s this view towards Warnscale with the Gatesgarth pines in the foreground that has become one of the iconic views of the Lake district.
On a calm morning like this with such a perfect reflection in the water who could honestly resist such a shot.
I counted at least half a dozen photographers on the strand as the sun rose that morning and I suspect we all got pretty much the same results.
At the same time I don’t suppose any of us were disappointed with our results that day.
