This inspiring photographic print shows a quiet jetty stretching out across the mirror-like sheen of Coniston Water in the Lake District. At five miles long and half a mile wide, this famous Cumbrian location has the towering Old Man of Coniston mountain about its western shore. Coniston Water is where Donald Campbell died tragically in his jet-powered boat ‘Bluebird’ whilst attempting to beat his own water speed record in 1967. Coniston village is a quaint place which has retained its old trades and relaxed way of life. The area around Coniston Water has much to do, from wonderful walks and boating excursions to cycle routes and pony trekking. For the photographer and artist, Coniston is a place where inspiration comes forth via the peace and mesmerising landscape scenes all around. Many artists have spent time around Coniston to draw inspiration for their paintings, books and poetry. This panoramic canvas print of Coniston captures the atmosphere perfectly with an early morning pink and blue colour theme.
