Brothers Water is a small lake in the Hartsop valley, in the north-eastern region of the English Lake District. It lies at the northern end of Kirkstone Pass, on the descent towards Patterdale. It was once called Broad Water, but the name was changed in the 19th century after two brothers drowned there.
This image was taken on our first visit to Brothers Water on a cold November morning. The dappled morning light was spectacular, and the lake was so calm it gave us superb reflections.
There were snow-capped mountains all around giving us some spectacular “grand landscapes”, but I much preferred this more intimate scene of the fells reflected in the lake.
Brothers Water is a superb location and one I would highly recommend to anyone visiting the northern Lake District and there are plenty of other locations nearby to interest the landscape photographer.
Personally, I favour visiting in Autumn or Winter, when you get much better light, as the sun is much lower. November was perfect for us as we got the autumn colours as well as the snow topped peaks. The temperature can be fairly low in winter, so dress up warm and I’d advise taking wellies as the going can be muddy at times.
