Description:

This exceptionally large (the size of Fenton's plates) English image is quite lyrical with its two children (Fenton's daughters?) playing by the water's edge of a lazy stream. A wooden bridge and a dirt road into treed area, which is lined by a rustic wooden rail fence (virtually identical to a fence appearing in other Fenton images), add to this beautiful country scene. See: Schaaf, Taylor and Kraus, Sun Pictures, Catalogue 14, Roger Fenton: A Family Collection, pl.12 for a view with a similar fence in it.
