Here William presents a long commanding view down towards the lake, with the Skiddaw massif soaring up into the lofty heights on the right-handside, while a handful of conifer trees hug the lower reaches of the Lorton Fells on the left, as the marshy contours of the pale green valley – painted in diminishing tones, roll down to the shore.
