  • Goats Water, Coniston - watercolour painting by Peter Woolley

    Goat's Water, Coniston

    £3.00 - £250.00

    It was a swelteringly hot day when we made our way up from Coniston Coppice towards the Old Man of Coniston. The original plan had been to try and reach the summit of the 'Old Man', but only got as far as Goat's Water, deciding, in the heat that this would make a perfectly fine target for the day, and a good point at which to turn around and start heading back down to lake-level.

    Goat's Water is a relatively small tarn by Lake District standards, nestled in a deep clough, with steep, scree slopes on three sides. The crags you see on the opposite side of the water are collectively known as Dow Crag (The Old Man of Coniston is up, off to the right of this view). When we were there, we could see several climbers clinging to its preciptious rock face, and hear them calling to each other.

    From a painting point of view, this is one of my favourite types of mountain landscape; the foreground rocks provide me with lots of textures to play with and the dramatic topography, punctuated by the stillness of the water, make for a scene that helps to conjure up many happy memories of time spent in the hills.
