View from the north of Yew Tree Tarn

This is the view from the north of Yew Tree Tarn, near Coniston in the Lake District, England. I usually take shots from the southern end of the tarn, but on this occasion, being earlier in the day, the light wasn't so good down there, and I really wanted to capture something different than before, so I headed up the shore path to the opposite end.

The resulting image was captured at 3:10pm, September 18th, and was developed from a single RAW file using Luminar 4.

I'm pleased with the results despite the Tarn being somewhat in the distance. I feel this is one of those times when I've successfully previsualised an image that other photographers may have walked straight past.

I know why I didn't remember this wide-angle lens now. I must have dismissed it altogether because of the price! smile

Yeah, it wasn't inexpensive. Most, but not all, of my shots are taken at the wide end. I don't think there's any other rectilinear lens available at APS-C 10mm for our camera :-)
