    Buttermere in the Lake District

    Photograph of Buttermere

    Buttermere is a beautiful Lake District mere surrounded by mountains. The village of Buttermere and the lake itself are very popular with tourists, so if you want to photograph the lake an early start is required to avoid the crowds.

    The pines at the south-east corner of the lake have been photographed by thousands of people. The view of Buttermere pines from the roadside has become a ‘classic image’ but many other parts of the lake shore offer interesting view points and features. It’s worth exploring with your camera. A level path enables you to make an easy circuit of the lake.

    The above photograph was taken from the shore looking across the water towards the pines and Lambing Knott. I liked the reflection of the sweeping drystone wall.

    Location info:

    There are car parks in Buttermere village and at Gatesgarth Farm. Grid reference of the location from which this photograph was taken: NY 185 152.
