A snowy Kirkstone Pass photograph in the Lake District

Snowy Kirkstone Pass photograph Lake District
This is the Lake District’s highest pass that is open to cars. It connects Ambleside to Patterdale. A rather wonderful mountain drive, one not to be taken lightly in snowy conditions. This is a popular view looking down towards Ullswater.
It’s a rather beautiful drive past Windermere and up into the hills, with a height of just under 1500feet it is the highest pass open to cars in the Lake District. The snow was clear on the roads and the pass was open, as we passed the inn the snow became a little deeper on the roadside, but will plenty of room for cars to pass. The view just past the now famous Kirkstone Pass Inn down towards Ullswater is rather devine.
I couldn’t resist a stop, so we pulled into a lay-by, I donned the big wellies and headed out for a quick walk. I didn’t want to head far, as this was just a very brief soiree into the hills before a late morning arrival in Carlisle.
The light and cloud cover was perfect really, a lovely dusting on the hills and a very chilly stream formed the perfect backdrop and foreground for a rather quick landscape image.
I hadn’t been to the Lakes for a little while and with just a 90 minute detour, I’ve already set the wheels in motion for a return in April for a full photography exploratory week before a potential workshop date later in the year.

Canvas and Print Information
Mounted prints are mounted using high quality mounting board. They are backed and supplied in a plastic sleeve for protection in transit.
Framed prints are mounted onto archival card, with a slightly off-white mount. The photograph will then be framed in either a think Oak Mount, or a solid wood black frame, whichever suits the photographic image. Frames are carefully chosen to suit the photograph and enhance the natural or black and white colourings.
NB: A small crop of the photograph may be required to fit the required frame size.
We print using ONLY genuine HP vivera Inks at 1440 dpi, producing in our opinion unrivalled image quality. The canvas surface is laminated for ultimate protection. No cracking, it’s water resistant, scratch proof and UV protected for 200 years!
We use sustainable European pine stretcher bars, which are completely knott free and prevent warping. We use real wood wedged corners for a perfectly tensioned canvas. The stretcher frame is 38mm deep and allows for perfectly tight and concealed corners.
Our canvas lab will receive each photograph within 24 hours of placing an order at www.landscapesuncovered.com
NB: It is important to note that each image is prepared individually for every customer. Some photographs have plenty of room just to be printed and wrapped onto the canvas, others may require some further work to add additional detail to the side frames. You will probably not even notice but is important for each customer to know this may occur. Largely this is due to aspect ratio for each photograph I have made.
All prints and canvases are sent bubble wrapped and securely packaged in high quality reusable white boxes. I am happy to ship overseas, however, please get in touch before placing your order, so I can discuss specifics about postage and insurance.
