The winter calm! - Windermere, Lake District

A long exposure of lake Windermere taken from Ambleside just after the heavy december snow. The water was quite still as there was almost no wind. The only thing disturbing the reflections was the ocassional ferry which absolutely destroyed reflections for a good 5 - 7 minutes. Getting this shot was a game of patience and timing to try and get a long exposure after the water had calmed down from the previous ferry and before the next one came into the scene. Long exposure really helped bring out those reflections and removed distraction caused by ripples in the water.
