Description

View of the Upper Lake at Killarney, showing a road with a short tunnel cut through the rock in the foreground and mountains in the background. The Upper Lake is described as follows by the authors:

And now let him look leisurely around him. He is in the midst of mountains—bleak and barren, but mighty in their magnificence. […] Their dark shadows arc thrown upon the water, so as to give it a character of gloom, in perfect keeping with the loneliness of the scene. One feels as if the sound of a human voice would disturb its solitude: and wishes the oars that row him over the Lake were muffled.
