Description

Left foreground is delineated by shore with rocks and low lying bushes. River or stream on right foreground recedes to middle ground, where there are falls [identified as Mossbrae Falls, California] flowing off of rocky outcroppings covered by greenery. Tall trees in the background obscure much of the blue sky overhead.
