Description

Black-and-white image of a rocky, seashore landscape and lighthouse. The image is taken from a higher vantage point, looking upon a high, rock cliff in the right side of the image, which is shaped into a point. Standing on the cliff are several figures, a wooden fence, and a house. In the body of water below, there are large, white-capped waves, and two large rock islands. On the front of the island furthest from the cliff, the top of a lighthouse is visible.
