The foreground consists of uneven ground in a mix of bluish-green and small areas of brown, suggesting soil with a mossy or grassy covering. In the midground to both left and right, trees in full leaf frame a line of sight to an expanse of water. The trees on the left-hand side are bluish-green, becoming a fuller dark blue towards the centre of the picture; these trees are seen to their full height. The darkness of their vegetation is due to their being in the shadow of the tree on the right, which is very much bigger. We see only the base, which branches at ground level, and the lower portion of the trunk, which are dark brown with pale patches reflecting sunlight; its foliage is mainly shown in dark grey. The water visible between the trees is blue with some white cloud reflections, behind what may be a mudflat or beach coloured purplish brown and not distinctly differentiated from the water. Further distant there is a shoreline, whose dark greyish green coloration suggests vegetation, behind which purplish-grey hills stretch behind the right-hand tree to the edge of the picture. The sky is light grey with a paler area in midheight and cumulo-nimbus clouds indicated behind the hills; the sun is shining from the right perpendicular to the line of sight.
A shoreline with trees and other vegetation.
