Bassenthwaite Lake - Cumbria66

Photo of Bassenthwaite Lake at Sunset in Lakeland - Lake District Photography by Nick Cockman


This landscape photograph was taken at sunset from Blackstock Point on the west side of Bassenthwaite Lake in the north western Lake District National Park looking northwest soon after the sun had dipped below the horzion. The lake is fed by water from the River Derwent which flows out of Derwent Water, the lake also drains into the River Derwent which then makes its way through Cockermouth to the sea at Workington. The lake lies at the foot of the Skiddaw mountain range near to the town of Keswick and is one of the shallowest lakes in the English Lake District at a maximum of 21 metres.
