Derwent Water pier at Keswick

One of the piers at Keswick for the launches and boats on Derwent Water in Cumbria. It’s raining - as in much of the UK today - so only the gulls are around. No big idea behind this image but I find it a pleasing composition. It’s also another rain picture, not usually the most promising conditions for light or subject but freely available at this time of the year and another strategy to move on from landscape pictures with a “conventional aesthetic”, ie pretty. Note the rich colours of the timber and the texture of the water surface dappled by the rain.
