New Lake District Photo Book Fuels Staycation Inspiration

A new book of photos focusing solely on the beautiful landscape of the Lake District has been released, showcasing some of the area’s famous mountains, lakes and National Parks.

Landscape photographer Stuart Holmes gained inspiration for his book “Photographing the Lake District: A Guide to the Most Beautiful Places” having made the connection between the scenery observed while traveling abroad with that also found within the Cumbrian region.

Mr Holmes is quoted as saying: “After extensive travel abroad, the scenic elements that made the Alps or Apennines popular were present in this part of the UK.

“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.”

To the 17 million visitors a year who already come to the Lake District, the revelation that natural beauty similar to that found in famous destinations around the World can be accessed via the M6 motorway is surely nothing new. But in showcasing some of the region’s lesser-known viewpoints and accompanying his artful imagery with useful information regarding how to find them, Stuart’s work may well create further interest in the region, not only from the regular visitors, but also from other UK holidaymakers looking to enjoy a break closer to home.

And the views captured, including that of Skiddaw from a viewing point at Catbells, could inspire even the most experienced and well-traveled photographers into paying the region a visit to find that perfect shot.

Stuart Holmes’ ‘Photographing the Lake District: A Guide to the Most Beautiful Places,’ published by FotoVUE is available to buy now on Amazon and other retailers.
