Kirkstone Pass and Brothers Water

Brothers Water (or Brotherswater as Alfred Heaton Cooper labelled the watercolour below; or Broad Water or Broader Water as it was called prior to the 19th century) is more of a tarn than a fully-fledged lake but it has a kind of prominence due to its being the first stretch of water seen as we come over Kirkstone Pass from Windermere or Ambleside toward Patterdale and Ullswater.

I have always found it difficult to obtain a good clear photograph looking down from the pass. Somehow I always seem to be there when the haze is unfriendly, the lighting angle wrong, or it’s simply pouring down.

An artist, though, has the freedom to show the scene as it “ought” to be. William Heaton Cooper included a beautiful watercolour of Kirkstone Beck pouring down towards Patterdale as the frontispiece to his book, “The Lakes”. I can’t reproduce that here for copyright reasons but I love this one by A. Heaton Cooper, his father, from the early years of the 20th century. He grasps the powerful ruggedness of the pass.
