dc.descriptionDrawing, double page panorama. 34v consists entirely of vaguely outlined continuations of the main topographical features of 35r. Occasional shadow lines in 35r indicate that the sun is shining diagonally from the left towards the viewer. In the sky, there is an indication of cumulo-cirrus cloud from the centre to the centre right, and a slight similar indication on the left, behind a background horizon composed of lines of jagged hilltops; the annotation on a hill in the left reads: "b", and that on a hill in the right: "blues". These hilltops run behind a line of more even-topped hills stretching from the left to the centre right of the picture, which slope down to the shoreline. A similar and slightly closer line of hills rises smoothly from the centre left to the right of the picture. There is almost no indication of vegetation on any of these background features. The midground shows an expanse of open calm water, with a tripled-masted ship, probably the Beagle, seen side-on in the distance. In the left foreground, rocky elevated ground rises steeply from the left, becoming much more even from the centre left to the right, though there is a rougher rocky mound to the right. Three human figures are shown in a close group in the centre in the distance, one standing in between the other two, who are seated. There is some indication of scanty small bushy vegetation on the rising ground in the left and left centre. The annotations on the right read: "rich red earth", and (in vertical orientation) "deepest shade of ground rich red & thro' reddish brown into yellowish red for the brightest part".en_GB
