This valley is the Lathkill Dale in Derbyshire. The river draws the spectator’s eye to the small but quaint Fisherman’s Cottage with smoke coming from the chimney. An autumn scene with the leaves on the tree changing colour. The picture is given depth by the use of local and atmospheric colours. The river gives movement with reflections and the waterfall. The cattle give a sense of scale.
