Hovershotz created this epic drone reel of England's Lake District one of the great natural treasures of the UK.  Most of the district forms a national park (the UK's largest) which covers an enormous area of almost 2.4k square km (about 900 square mi.) -  a significant proportion of Cumberland, the county which covers the northwestern part of England.   The District is known as much for its mountains and forests as its lakes, and has captivated the minds of some of England's top literary names for centuries.  

Lake District: Windermere and Lea Tarn


Lake District


Top contributor newcastlemale used a DJI Phantom 4 drone to create this stunning aerial video of Northern England's famous Lakes District.  It opens with some shots around Lake Windermere, England's largest natural lake, including the Neo-Gothic Wray Castle on its western shore and the town of Ambleside Waterhead at its north end.  The video ends with some epic footage of the tiny Lea Tarn, a tiny lake which lies to the northwest of Windermere.  The Lake District is located in County Cumbria in North West England.

Snow in the Lake District




England's Lake District is one of the few spots in the United Kingdom where snow can be found semi-regularly.  With its highest peaks approaching 1k meters above sea level (around 3.3k ft.), combined with a relatively northern latitude (the District is near the Scottish border) and a location some distance in from the sea, winter temperatures are low enough that snowfall occurs with some frequency.  When it does, it makes for some incredible winter scenery, as you'll see in this drone video by AirVuz contributor Jakevideo.
