Guide to Photographing Coniston Water - Location Map

I have recently returned from a short trip to the Lake District. I was staying near the villiage of High Nibthwaite on the East shores of Coniston Water, a great base for exploring this picturesque location.

I thought I'd put together a brief guide to some of the locations that I discovered in my time there and illustrate these areas with some of the photographs that I captured at the time.

Coniston runs roughly North - South and therefore gives a number of options for dawn and dusk photography taking advantage of views from both East and West sides of the Lake.

Coniston is not as accessible as some of the Lakes in the Lake District such as the beautiful Buttermere which is circumvented almost entirely by a footpath.

I have included a simple map to the Coniston area and indicated the three locations that I have included in my brief guide to Photographing Coniston Water in the Lake District. I hope that you find this information useful and I would enjoy seeing your photos from this area.
