Photographer's Note

Note: This image was taken on a very rainy walk out of Grassmere. Wearing full rain gear the small Olympus was tucked just inside the zip of my raincoat. I would bring it out to take images, hand held, from time to time when the rain eased. I was constantly wiping rain drops off the UV filter with my handkerchief. Occasionally I managed to get an image with no drops.

"Easedale Tarn is a tarn in the centre of the English Lake District, about two miles west of the village of Grasmere. It lies in a hollow between Tarn Crag to the north and Blea Rigg to the south, about 910 feet or 280 metres above sea level. The hollow was formed by a small corrie glacier, and is believed to have filled with water around 11,000 years ago when the ice finished melting.

Easedale Tarn is one of the larger tarns in the district, about 480 metres long and 300 metres wide. Its outflow is Sourmilk Gill, named after the milky white colour of its waterfalls, which runs east towards Grasmere. The gill displays impressive water scenery when seen from Grasmere, and from the path to the tarn.

The tarn is a popular destination for walkers. Many people climb the path from Grasmere ..."
