Description

Black and white. View of a distant mountain that stretches across the middle of the picture; the mountain is partly snow covered and seems relatively barren, even though some trees can be discerned across the mountain. A stream meanders through the foreground; leafless trees are scattered through the foreground and middle ground of the picture, including a tree that has fallen into the stream on the picture’s left side.
