Lives in the Landscape was a month long series of events celebrating lives past and present in stunning Ravenglass and Eskdale.

The living landscape of Ravenglass and Eskdale in the Western Lake District has been shaped over many centuries. Historical evidence of the impact of the Vikings and the Romans still remains, and the Lives in the Landscape month offered an insight into the influence of the people from the past and also the present, who are now custodians of some of the finest landscapes, coast and heritage in England.  

A feature of Lives in the Landscape 2013 was a photography exhibition showcasing the diversity and beauty of the Ravenglass and Eskdale landscape, from the dramatic coast to the awe-inspiring mountains, this is truly is an unforgettable landscape.

Many thanks to all the photographers who exhibited in the Lives in the Landscape photography exhibition in September 2013.
