    I'd go on manual mode, play around with the settings, and learn what works. Take some test shots, look at your histogram, adjust the settings as needed, then re-shoot. You'll soon learn how everything fits together.

    Take a tripod if you have one and it's not too much hassle.

    Have fun in the Lakes. It's a fantastic place, and I'm really looking forward to going again.

    A CPOL and tripod are essential; watch your skies, make sure you don't blwo them out. Bring your wide glass, shoot wide angle, but not so wide as to cause distortion. Consider panramas. Watch your foreground/background, look for things out of place (eg a tree that appears to grow out of something else as a result of parallax error). Good luck.
