Black-and-white image of a field filled with thin, leafy trees. There is a cluster of thin tree trunks in the right side of the image, and another small group of trees in the center of the middle ground. There is a small gravestone leaning against the base of these tree trunks that is surrounded by stones. There are white flower buds in the grass and shrubs in the background.
