Mirror-like reflections on Thirlmere.

And so on to my last day in the Lakes and I was hoping to get some Thirlmere reflections on my return home. The top end of the Lake had no calmness in it at all which I thought was strange as it was a very still day. As I approached the Dunmail Raise end of the lake my jaw dropped as I was greeted by the most perfect reflections I can ever recall seeing. From past experience, I knew that lakes can turn from mirror-like to choppy in a matter of minutes so I made a bee-line for the carpark at Steel End, grabbed my camera out of the boot and headed straight down to the lake. A few people I passed on the way commneted on how perfect the reflections were and they certainly weren't wrong.

I have added the best of my photos, both of the lake and the surrounding area.
