This is one from last year with my 5D mk II: Chapel Stile from the lane that runs behind the school and village - fond memories of good weather that was also good photographic weather

I have become friends with the owners of Waterhead coffee shop and this is the owner's son who is home from Sheffield Uni. The overcast conditions yesterday morning actually helped to diffuse the light as I have made few modifications to this shot

Recuperating from contracting cellulitis from a flying ant bite while taking the photographs of Swansea Bay, I've returned to the Lake District before I make another trip to Asia. Took a gentle stroll down Great Langdale with my Pentax around my neck.
Weather is very mixed here in the Lake District, with a small tornado making its way across Lake Windermere yesterday (30 minutes after it had turned over a 2 ton muck spreader 70 miles south in Bolton). It started off wet today but dried out quite nicely later in the day. I make note of the weather forecast here, but resign to the fact that the weather can do anything around mountains valleys and lakes so take each day as it comes.
The view while having a coffee at Waterhead, Ambleside with the rain pouring down:
Very nicely controlled and balanced exposure on the swan images , it's a shame the two white boats in the foreground of the first image dominate the image so much because I think it could be a really good dramatic shot ( the wonky horizon would need sorting out ) .
