This beautifully composed view across the mere at Elterwater has all the quintessential elements of early summer in the Lake District: a carpet of bluebells in the foreground, the hawthorn in blossom by the lake shore, and the slender poles of silver birch in new leaf flanking the scene. The thickly wooded rise of Yew Crags, with Elterwater Hall emerging from among the trees, and the deep shadows on Lingmoor, give solidity and depth of colour to the centre of the painting; while the magnificent Langdale Pikes- Loft Crag, Harrison Stickle and Pavey Ark- rise up pale and majestic in the background.
