Into the water - Derwent Water, Lake District

Long expo at Derwent Water, near Keswick in Lake District, Cumbria, England. The lake occupies part of Borrowdale and lies immediately south of the town of Keswick. It is both fed and drained by the River Derwent. Derwentwater is a place of great scenery. It is surrounded by hills (called fells), and many of the slopes facing Derwentwater are heavily wooded. Derwent means River with oak trees. The lake is believed to be the last remaining native habitat of the vendace fish. It was also the shooting location for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens for the scene "Approach to Maz Kantana's Castle, Takodana".
