View across Derwent water from Maiden Moor. The Lake District, Cumbria. Olympus EM5 + 45-150 Panasonic lens. ISO200, f/6.3, 1/500″. The mountain in the distance is Blencathra or Saddleback.

In my previous Friday Image post I shared an image from the Lake District which I had taken from the summit of Catbells. Shortly after I was on my way up Maiden Moor (next peak in the Newlands Horseshoe) when I spotted a balloon coming over the Helvellyn range. I watched for a while thinking these people must be having the flight of a lifetime.

As I watched it started to descend, levelling out just above the treetops on the bank of Derwent water. Then it slid silently across the surface before rising again over Catbells. This is one of the images I shot where you can see the balloon in the left-hand corner of the frame.

Hope you like the image and have a great weekend.
