Part ii - Rugged Reflections: The Lake District

An aerial perspective revealing hidden treasures that cannot be seen from the ground, Rugged Reflections captures the sheer magnificence of the Lake District National Park from the air. Living Art founder Si Homfray spent one day hanging precariously out of a helicopter taking a series of photographs that makes up Rugged Reflections. 

"With the shattering noise of rotor blades and 80 miles an hour winds, it was possible to develop a closeness and intimacy with the landscape. It was a very privileged insight into just what makes this iconic place so revered," said Si.

The first flight set out from Newby Bridge and headed north via Windermere, Borrowdale and Keswick to Caldbeck, returning along the eastern fringe of the lakes, taking in Blencathra, Haweswater, High Street and Helvellyn. A second ascent produced dramatic shots of western gems, including Buttermere, Ennerdale and Pillar down to the Langdales, Hardknott Pass and Coniston.

Open to the Public at The Lake District National Park Authority's BROCKHOLE VISITOR CENTRE, Lake Windermere Monday to Sunday 9am to 6pm
