recently spent three days driving around the county taking photos.
We clocked up over 200 miles on the motorway, trunk roads and awkward
braves the elements in Rampside.
some amazing stroke of luck, the weather behaved itself. If this
kind of thing is planned in advance, the weather would normally
screw it up. We decided to just sneak up on the elements and this
tactic worked. Glorious sunshine for three days.
worst problems we encountered with the elements were strong winds
on Roa Island and the constant demand for food from Suzanne's stomach.
(Strong winds nothing to do with Suzanne's food intake.)
traffic havoc in Whitehaven.
mountain of images
- full of mountains and lakes. Very photogenic. However, that's
not where most of us live. We took over 300 digital photographs
of places and people from Walney to Carlisle.
of these images were then catalogued when we returned to base.
Then they were catalogued again - this time in a sensible way. We
use our library every day - using existing pictures for news stories
or features and adding new images as we take them.
great thing about digital photography is that you can snap away
without worrying about wasting film. If you've got a digital camera,
why not take it with you next time you go out?
us your digital pictures - the area where you live, where you work
or even snaps of your mates down the pub. If you'd like to see your
photos in a BBC Cumbria photo-gallery, email them to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
