My best lake district view. Sunset from Haystacks, near Buttermere looking west towards Crummock Water, Ennerdale & the Irish Sea. Haystacks was Alfred Wainwrights favourite mountain and from this view you can see why!

Best Lake District Photos & Best Views

It is the English Lake District which started off my love and awe of natural landscapes, as I used to go here on annual holidays as a small boy, and I still visit quite often as an adult. No matter where I go in the world - I always think the English Lake District is my favourite place. You can discover some of my best Lake District Walks & Best views on my walking and photography blog here.

I am always looking for inspiration of where to walk next in the Lake District and photograph, and below is a small selection of the best, most beautiful views and photos that I have come across of various places across the Lakes - some are familiar to me - and some I would love to witness with my own eyes. As the weather is so changeable round here - each visit somewhere can turn up some unique images.

Here's is a few of my favourite Lake District views & photos:

(Please note I have tried to credit the photographer where possible - on some occasions the photos where found on wallpaper sites. If I have used your photo and you want it crediting or taking off the page - please let me know)

Low Fell & Crummock Water

Low Fell Walk, Crummock Water, Buttermere, Loweswater, Best Lake District view
This view is from Low Fell over Crummock Water. Low Fell is not a particularly well-known fell in the Lake District and is a little away from the main tourist areas - so it's not as popular as some of the more well-known summits. And whilst Low Fell is not particularly difficult to walk up - it presents some stunning views and is well worth a visit, particularly on a summers evening when the sun is going down behind you, illuminating this magnificent landscape.
