Description

Print depicting a misty landscape scene. There is a body of water in the foreground and middle ground, separated between by a small area of land in the left and right sides of the print, and connected by a bridge. There is a figure standing on the bridge, and a tree on the piece of land in the left side of the print. There is another piece of land behind the second body of water, which is covered with trees. There is a boat in the foreground, and there are mountains in the background, which are very light gray and only slightly visible.
