The village of Great Urswick and its marl tarn are captured here in light from the low sun of early evening.  The high ground of the Furness Fells, which form a spine-like feature along the Furness peninsula, may be seen in the background.  Gentle in character, these fells link to the more severe, yet strikingly beautiful fells at the nearby southern boundary of the English Lake District.  Moist Atlantic air rising over those lakeland mountains may well be responsible for the distant and distinctive low level cloud seen in this northwest facing photograph.
