Drawing. The sky contains occasional indications of thin low cloud around and between jagged and very uneven hilltops that form the horizon. In the midground, the lower slopes are heavily wooded, the trees being nearly all leafy, though three palm crowns protrude in the centre and centre right; one taller and more prominent tree on the left may be a breadfruit. In the left foreground--midground we see the bank of a tidal inlet or river, with indications of a rocky bed and lines of fast-flowing water. The watercourse curves leftward then rightward from the centre of the picture to fill the whole foreground. The bank on the right is similar to that on the left, but is sketched in much less detail. To the right of the picture, shading on a rock in the left foreground suggests that the sun is shining from behind and to the right of Martens' vantage point.
A river inlet and valley landscape.
