An aerial view of land meeting water. The water is a deep emerald green and the land, a varying shade of ochre and brown. The lower section is the water and there is a boat dock on the lower right section of the image. The land mass is the upper portion of the image, but seems to be separated at one section in a horizontal format.

The drawing depicts a river with at least a dozen boats of various sizes in the fore- and middle grounds. The ships range in size from a larger boat with a single tall mast, to smaller boats with and without sails, including a small boat in the lower left corner poled by a man standing in the stern that seems to be ferrying a group of people across the river. Many of the boats are docked and are being loaded or unloaded. The spires and rooftops of towns are visible on both riverbanks.
