I took this photo on 31st October 2016, late October or early November is usually the best time for autumn colour in the Lake District. After an early start at Brothers Water I decided to visit Ullswater which is nearby. I noticed the steamer crossing the lake so got ready to capture it as it passed by. A photographer on the boat had the same idea to photograph the view.
This photo will appear along with all the other award winning and commended photos in the Landscape Photographer of the Year exhibition at London Waterloo Station between 20th November - 4th February, and also appear in the book Landscape Photographer of the Year Collection 11. It's not an easy competition to do well in with thousands of entries every year from amateurs and professionals, but I've been lucky to have had success in three separate years now. Well done to all the others appearing in the book and exhibition.
