David Ball : Exploring the Lake District


What can I say about the lake district that already hasn’t been said… Well I found my passion for the place a couple years ago now when visiting for the first time believe it or not! Since then I get back as much as I can which is probably 5 times a year.

I’ve had many adventures in my last 2 years travelling around the area where I have visited some stunning places like BUTTERMERE, HONISTER PASS, and ULLSWATER as you can see in my images I’ve been blessed with some great conditions but none of them where much of an adventure etc but that was all about to change when recently I went in search of the waterfall SCALE FORCE Where do i start….


I’ve been after this waterfall for some time now but didn’t really know how to get to it but after some help from a fellow photographer I set off in pursuit of this magical waterfall which stands high up in the hidden mountains of the lake district.


Having trekked around 2 miles through muddy fields and climbing over everything you can imagine well thats how it felt at the time… I finally arrived! Once there I had to scale a 20ft rock which was very dangerous and slippery at the time as it had been very wet the previous day… but was well worth all the effort as once I reached the top I was greeted with this magnificent view!


What I didn’t mention is when I got up there the spray off the water was the worst I’ve ever experienced and there for had to be very smart with capturing my images!

About David

About me – I’m a landscape photographer based in and around the UK, I finally found my passion for landscape work after doing various types of photography through my ten years of experience. My inspiration to become a photographer started at a young age when my granddad would inspire me with his camera on holidays.

My passion is now with landscape work, some of which has been published in leading magazines including Digital Camera Magazine. Recently one of my images has been short listed in the National Geographic Traveller photo competition 2015.
