Watch the stunning footage and take an aerial tour of the Lakes
A filmmaker has created his very own love letter to the Lake District, with stunning aerial footage of Cumbria.
Michael Lazenby’s cinematic tribute to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, aptly titled The Lake District, has been viewed almost 450,000 times on Facebook, with nearly 3,000 more watchers on YouTube.
A spontaneous trip to the national park in 2014 was where it all started.
The 23-year-old from Stockton-On-Tees began to visit the area as much as he could and quickly fell in love with the Lake District and mountaineering.
“The views left me in awe,” said Michael, who also has a passion for filmmaking.
He said: “I’ve wanted to make this film for over two years, it was really the place that made me want to become a storyteller, so I felt I owed it to myself to make a love letter to the place that started my love for adventure, storytelling, and photography.”
Since he made the film Michael has had two job offers and a number of personal messages.
