Image of figures in a landscape. There are two figures in the bottom right quadrant, seen from behind. The figure on the left has dark brown hair and the figure on the right is blond and wearing brown shorts. The figure on the right is barefoot. They are on a black rectangular object (raft) in the water. There is a wooden dock that extends from the bottom left corner to bottom center and halfway out into the composition. There are two pairs of shoes on the dock, tennis shoes and red flip flops. There are threes in the background along the horizon, about halfway down from the top of the page. The sky is blue-grey.
