Beatrice Perry

One fine July day, Beatrice and Beatrice decided to go on a walk to Angle tarn accompanied by Ilika the dalmatian and Dora the dachshund. They donned the extremely flattering and wonderful Piers Dresses, designed by Beatrice Perry –  one in storm chambray & the other in candy pinstripe. Beatrice Hasell-McCosh took her sketch book, as an artist you never quite know when you might have a moment for a quick drawing.

Starting down the track they passed by Dalehead farm and headed up the steep ascent stopping several times to admire the views. The natural rugged greens of the valley are completely breathtaking and only inhabited by deer and sheep. Occasionally the purple of a fox glove would peep up against the greys of the ancient dry stone walls which are typical to the Lake District. 

 Suddenly over a small incline having walked along the path on top of the hill they saw the lake – a magnificent cold and enticing place to swim on such a hot day! Luckily picnic supplies had been brought and they spent a leisurely couple of hours enjoying the rare Cumbrian heat wave.

That evening on their return they changed and Beatrice wore the Osmanthus dress, first in racing green and then in cherry red which matched the bungalow colours extraordinary well! As the sun set and the golden evening light disappeared over the hill the shadows raced up the valley and all in all it had been the most perfect English summers day!

Winter in the Lake District

dalemain-7276Winter in the north of England has definitely been more extreme this year with the unbelievable amount of flooding. Cumbria and other parts of the UK have suffered. However there have been moments of beauty and I have enjoyed many solitary walks with the dogs seeing the colours changing and enjoying the winter light. A moment of calm before the season of weddings and portraits begin.dalemain-7280 dalemain-7282dalemain-7288dalemain-7321dalemain-7301cm-7249dalemain-7309See more of the Cumbrian floods post here.

Autumn changes

Thoughts of the moment

As the wedding season is sort of, nearly finished (five more to go) I have taken a moment to escape from city life and concentrate fully on photography. For the next couple of months I am basing myself in the Lake District, where could be more inspiring and beautiful? At this time of year the sun is rising and setting later and earlier and are able to witness the most amazing light without getting up at the crack of dawn!Dalemain-october-2015-3886Phenomenal colours, so vibrant and electric.

Beatrice Hasell-McCosh Art

My talented sister, Beatrice studied painting at Leith art school in Edinburgh last year. She now paints full time in Cumbria. After a successful exhibition in September she has been asked to join two more next year. One which will be particularly interesting is to paint portraits of local farmers around Ullswater in the Lake District.

Here in her studio she has so many interesting little objects dotted around, postcards, glow in the dark stars, a bag of bulbs labelled ” 2kg of cheerfulness”, little wooden horses and a turkish slipper hanging on the wall. Her turps is kept in an old marmite jar and her dog Tara (who has featured in a recent painting sitting on a china elephant) is sitting nearby keeping a watchful eye. When painting she holds an array of brushes in her hand and half closing her eyes she will create wonderful textures of oil paint on her canvas.

Of course the wild and often rugged landscape of the Lake District has also been a great influence as well. She is currently working on a commission, painting in a hidden valley above Lake Ullswater. Weather depending she will go as often as possible followed by the ever willing and faithful dogs, Tara and Dora!

Hermione McCosh Photography-Dave&Clare Wedding-Inn on the Lake- Cumbria

A June wedding at The Inn on the Lake, Cumbria

The Inn on the Lake, which is found at the end of Ullswater in Glenridding is one of the most picturesque spots in the Lake District. David and Clare were married there in June this year surrounded by their children and close family. It was an incredibly special mid-week wedding, the ceremony took place in the hotel and after a ‘run around the garden, (which was mainly the children), I left them to enjoy a ride on the steamer. Glenridding is just 15 minutes from where I live so we planned that I would come back for the twilight moment when the sun is so soft and lovely. In the grounds of the hotel we found this incredible tree which definitely makes the photograph at the end of the series one of my favourites images I took this summer.
