In early August, I spent some time in Lake District and Manchester. I took
more than two thousand photos, which, due to the little amount of free time
and multiple burnouts over the editing and selecting process, took me more
than half a year to edit. I hope that I will never undertake such a long
editing journey again cause' it almost completely halted my desire for taking
new photos and left me no choice but to stack the photos I've taken nevertheless.
In Manchester, I was enjoying free time with my cousin, while I was waiting
for a decent weather forecast for Lake District. The best experience was
seeing Much Ado For Nothing by Shakespeare performed by a "touring" theater
of 5 actors that would build the stage and perform all the roles without
any amplification on their own. Also, as I've lately started to dance swing,
I joined a local community for an evening lesson and a following social dancing.
Lake District had a beautiful picturesque landscape. I backpacked throughout
three camps and hiked both shorter and longer distances. The longest distance
was about 35km with an elevation of 1.8km. I took those night photos in
two-thirds of this hike, while the remaining descent included: being lost
in marshes while the sun was long under the horizon and meeting random sheep
at night together with waking up all the flocks I passed. One unexpected
thing to see was a fighter jet training that regularly took place in the
local hills/mountains, one time three jets passed over my head, and the
noise was overwhelming. I hope I managed to capture the essence of the
landscape and my wandering.
I created two sets of photos mini
The mini contains 50 photos and it is a subset of the full which contains 136 photos.
The purpose of the mini is to not overload you with too many photos,
then if you like it, you may discover "bonus" photos in the full set.
