Here Shalders has painted a beautifully romanticised Welsh valley. This particular spot is thought to be near  to Betws-y-Coed,  and was painted in 1853. Shalders has paid close attention to the sun’s rays which break through the clouds and light up the landscape below.  This work is very much a rural idyll, with the cattle calmly grazing in the centre of the composition, forming part of the natural landscape.
