A popular scene you may come across when browsing Lake District Pictures. It seems to represent an iconic view and a great challenge for the photographer. How do you compose the scene and are you lucky or persistent enough to get the weather on your side. Whatever approach is taken there is no denying this is a magnificent place and the view here is still as relaxing and inspiring to me as the day I took this picture. The quietness, stillness and scale of the scene is something to become immersed in. The late setting winter sun casts warming rays over Haystacks and onto the west side of Fleetwith Pike. The shore of Buttermere was frozen as was the grass in the foreground, this and the shadowed eastern slopes of High Stile offer an interesting contrast to the warming rays. The grass almost leading you into the scene and the tree standing graciously alone.

Would thoroughly recommend

I ordered a print for a Christmas present for my daughter. Despite ordering in December, it arrived within a few days. The print is stunning and I know my daughter will be delighted. Such a wide variety of prints to choose from. I would definitely recommend



Beautiful Buttermere photograph

Absolutely delighted with my purchase of James Bell’s stunning photograph of the lone tree at Buttermere. High quality print and frame. Exceptional service and quick delivery.



The pictures are of a very high standard. Printed on high quali

The pictures arrived safely by signed Royal Mail. The packaging was good and the pictures are of a very high standard. Printed on high quality paper. I'm sure they will look very nice once I have them framed and will provide a daily reminder of the beautiful hills that I have been hiking up and down for the past 51 years (and hopefully have a few more still to go)!!
