Lord Of The Rings by MikeShawPhotography Lord Of The Rings by MikeShawPhotography
Another image from Wast Water in the Lake District in the UK, I was not going to upload any more but this shot took the most amount of work.

More so a lot more risk in that I was stood in the water with my camera and lens sat on a tripod, remote shutter and filters, I wont tell you the total value but to say I was a little nervous is an understatement, it was also very cold in there.

I was also nervous of the title as well, I am a huge fan of both the books and the films but when you are in this place you cannot help but be reminded of the tales of Tolkien so I decided to stick with it.

Technical info:
Camera: Gripped Canon 7D
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm
Filters: Lee Big Stopper and Hitech 0.9ND soft grad
F-stop: f/18
Exposure time: 81secs
Focal length: 11mm
ISO:100

Post edited in CS5 to colour correct, other colours tweaked and sharpened in Lightroom 3

Amazing pictures. Wast Water is truely amazing for these kind of pictures, I love your title.
Have you've been up to the mountains to? To Scafellpike?
The atmosphere there was also a bit LOTR. I've done the Wast Water and Scafellpike route on a horse, that completed the whole LOTR experience :)

Next time someone tells me I should see New Zealand, I'll go "Naaah, it's just the Lake District upside down". :giggle: But seriously, it's an epic view. :)
