View by Thomas Ogle of Rydal Water in the Lake District, illustrating 'Our English Lakes, Mountains, And Waterfalls, as seen by William Wordsworth' (1864). The book juxtaposes photographs of the Lake District with poems by the English Romantic poet. Rydal Water is situated a short distance north of Ambleside between Windermere and Grasmere in Cumbria, and is one of the smallest of the region's lakes. Nonetheless beautiful, with two islands, it was much loved by Wordsworth (1770-1850), who drew great inspiration from the lakeland landscape. There were fine views from his home overlooking the lake at Rydal Mount, where he lived between 1813 and 1850 with his wife Mary and sister Dorothy.
