"But in calm weather, the whole scene becomes new; the lake is a perfect mirror; and the landscape in all its beauty, islands, fields, woods, rocks, and mountains, is seen inverted and floating on its surface"
[John Brown - Derwentwater (1766) in:Prose of Lakeland - B. L. Thompson, p25/6]
Here is another beautiful view across Derwentwater, looking at the brooding mass of Skiddaw from the shore directly beneath Catbells near Portinscale. William captured its enduring charm on a number of occasions, and this painiting is reminiscent of the fine view he painted from Friars Crag aswell.
