"Idyllically set in the Lake District and suitable for everyone from beginner to expert, Lakeland Photographic Holidays take participants off the beaten track to some of Cumbria's most awe-inspiring views to focus on nature, landscapes and walking.

Each day is spent doing rather than talking, with John Gravett - one of the most respected landscape photographers in the UK - providing practical coaching from the field. Delicious breakfasts and packed lunches are provided and at night participants can enjoy four-course home-cooked dinners complemented with post-production reviews of images taken during the day.

Workshops cost from £685 for six nights, including accommodation, tuition, food, soft drinks and excursions."

"These amazing pictures prove no matter how wet and overcast it gets in the UK summertime, the traditionally miserable weather can provide moments of beauty too.

Met Office experts predicted yesterday that Britain faces 10 years of wet summers, caused by a natural warming in the Atlantic pushing a current of fast-flowing air in the upper atmosphere, known as the jet stream, further south.

Six out of the last seven UK summers have seen above average rainfall - with just 2010 the exception. It is thought that long-term Atlantic currents could be the reason why this is happening."
