“Codale, perched on a shelf six hundred feet higher than Easedale tarn – a mere rock pool, but in situation most romantic, is the prettiest mere of all : stand back from its outlet and drink in the picture – the narrow dark band of water, the great pile of rock dabbed with spits of grass”
[The English Lakes – W. T. Palmer, p217]
A lonesome silhoutted figure accompanied by a few sheep, stands on the brow of a hill towards the left-handside, calmly surveying the tranquil beauty offered by Codale Tarn in this evocative painting. The tarn is once rumoured to have held Trout of all sizes, and been a hazard to any wanderer lost in the mist.
