Wast Water -- Brooding and sublime, the deepest
lake in Britain is seen in the familiar northward stance, which has become the emblematic
view of the entire Lake District. Hoping for a glorious sunrise over Great Gable, I
beat the summer crowds from Windermere to get here at half past six, only to be greeted
with rain. The original shot was a blotch of gray, which portrayed the mood of
the place rather well, but demanded a bit of work in Photoshop to salvage the image.
I couldn't just toss it; this is one of my favourite spots on earth, beckoning me to
return year after year.
