Having spent a few days (before dawn to dusk) looking for reference material this was the final location on this day as the Langdale Pikes (the distant range) were bathed in a wonderful evening light - sadly the wonderful clear sky and wind free day was changing fast as can be seen with the band of cloud and wind moving the water surface of the River Brathay.

Being early spring there wasn't much leaf on the trees, which in this case provided a more opened view - not that this superb location needs any help improving...
