Black-and-white landscape image of a large field. There is an old gate in the foreground, consisting of two bent, wooden posts on each side of the image, and connected at the top by a metal wire. The gate is made of thin strips of metal and wire, and it is connected to the wooden posts. There is a small shrub in the bottom right corner of the image, at the base of the right post. The field is full of dry patches of grass, and the horizon line cuts the image in half. There are thin, fluffy clouds throughout the sky.
