Grasmere from a Turner Overlook

Grasmere from a Turner Overlook

The Lake District Painters and Turner in particular are everywhere you go in the Lake District. You have seen these views on museum walls and in art books, and it is constant deja vue all over again. There are plaques. “Turner painted this.”

And little wonder. This view of Grasmere might have been better if the day had allowed a view deeper into the mountains behind the lake. There are higher peaks under the clouds. But it is still atmospheric and all too typical of a summer’s day in England. We actually made it all the way around the lakes without getting wet that day, but it was a close run thing.
