Buttermere Tranquility by Simibean Buttermere Tranquility by Simibean
On my recent trip to the Lake District I made sure to visit lake Buttermere and capture the famous trees, I was lucky to get the sun catching the top of Fleetwith Pike aswell as a near perfect reflection. Hope you enjoy it.

Edit: I've re uploaded this photo after processing it again in photoshop, I felt the previous version was too over-done in terms of saturation in the sky, this is a more subtle version and I believe it works alot better.

Wow! Is this possible? Unbelievably calm but yet so vivid colours.

Stunning!!So perfect a setting it would be expected to be seen on some undiscovered pristine world rather than Earth.
