"While returning to the boat after visiting the monastery above, the landing stage I was on collapsed. Fortunately I managed to throw the bag with my paints and camera into a nearby boat as I felt myself going into the water, but it was only after I had got completely soaked did I manage, with the help of two monks and the boatman, to get onto the remaining bit of the stage, amidst apologies from the monks for the state of their building. The painting was made from the boat while I sat in the sun and dried out.

Despite this upset, which I later saw the funny side of, it was an enjoyable day out. The boatman who spoke English well had been good company, but it was the tranquil beauty of the lake that had really made it for me." - MH
