Grasmere, Grasmere, Cumbria, England

You could say that there's no such thing as a bad film, just one that behaves as you like it or not as the case may be. In the case of the Konica film used to capture this scene, it was more a case of the latter with the film's propensity to register reds. My liking for vivid greens and blues tends to lead me to Fuji film for most of my film work, not that I do as much of it these days. Konica's reds and russets were really plain to see on the prints made from the film so a spot of colour correction was needed to bring you the (hopefully) more natural looking landscape that you see above.

Of course, you never should have to do that kind of adjustment but, if right was right, I should have been in north-west Wales that day and not Cumbria. A cancelled train made for that change of plan and any disgruntlement (I think that I managed to get a refund afterwards but that bit is lost from my memory, possibly not a bad thing) was eased away by the wonderful afternoon that I enjoyed with a memorable circular walk from Ambleside that took in Loughrigg Fell and the shores of lakes like Grasmere and Rydal Water. The surrounding hills looked good too with the likes of Helm Crag, Steel Crag and Seat Sandal among them. A disrupted day had ended well.
