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.

The scroll depicts a mountainous scene. To the upper middle of the painting are three mountain peaks. To the lower right is a steep mountainside and what appears to be buildings. Below that looks to be a trial. In the middle slightly to the left is a dark spot with what could potentially be a tree/forestation. On the far right towards the bottom is an inscription in both black and red ink.
