"I spent a cracking day last week running a workshop that was sandwiched in-between two lovely spring days. Almost but not quite tee shirt weather.
"From a work perspective those hazy summer days aren't very productive though. Although the 'green gown of summer' can occasionally produce some outstanding images, it is not the norm. i tend to go looking for closer work that can still be placed in my favourite location such as flowers on the fells above Wast Water.
"Sadly, I have seen some folk who arrive in the lakes and don't quite have that understanding. Dogs leaping right from the cars as the drivers pull up to admire the scenery and the animal bolts off onto the fells scattering sheep as they go. It is natural for the animal to behave that way, so we have to remind ourselves of our responsibilities."
