Summary:
View looking out across a quiet river surrounded by rolling hills and lush green vegetation that is reflected on the surface of the water. In the middle of the river a figure in a rowboat makes his way toward toward a small shore on the right, and in the background on the left, water tumbles over a waterfall beside an old mill. Overhead the sky is streaked with clouds tinged with pink as the sun sets in the distance.
