Photographer Marck Wickens' photos of Cumbria in the North-West of England capture the region's rolling green hills, majestic animals and misty clouds. The region is home to some of England's tallest peaks, and boasts incredible beauty that has long inspired artists and photographers.

Wickens' photos of Cumbria depict the region's gorgeous hills as peaking and falling as if they were residing in a landscape painting. The photos are taken in such a way that viewers can appreciate the overcast weather, but still enjoy luminous grass and fur of animals gazing bemusedly into the camera.

Perhaps the best photo of the series is of a Lake District sheep, stained with red color for easy identification, sizing up the camera. Beyond the sheep lie rolling hills dotted with trees, and enveloped by foggy clouds.
