The images have been revealed in the new book, Photographing The Lake District: A Guide to the Most Beautiful Places by landscape photographer, Stuart Holmes.
“After extensive travel abroad, the scenic elements that made the Alps or Apennines popular were present in this part of the UK,” said Stuart.
“The Lake District as described by Ashley P. Abraham contains ‘more natural beauty, more literary associations, and more diversity of charm than any other similar area of the whole of the Earth’s surface’.
“If it’s your first visit or you’re a regular Lake District visitor, this book will point you to some of the best locations and hopefully inspire you to explore the limitless photographic possibilities of this unique area.”
With over 17.32 million visitors a year, the Lake District is a popular holiday destination and is known for its iconic landmarks and locations.
The book also features guides on how to get to each location as well as suggestions for photographers on what to shoot and viewpoints.
“Today millions of people visit the Lake District every year – they do this to enjoy one of the most beautifully scenic areas in the world,” said Stuart.
“Dedicated photographers come to the Lake District with the sole purpose of exploring the photographic potential of the area, in order to catch the golden moments when landscape and light combine to dramatic effect.”
