Lady of the Lake
Lady of the Lake boathouse, Rudyard Lake
This attractive boathouse was built in 1893. At that time Rudyard Lake was a major tourist destination. The building incorporates a ships figurehead in the side of the chimney! (Canon EOS 60D, Tamron 10-24mm @ 24mm, 1/200s @ f/7.1, heavily cropped)
