Description

Exterior. In this color image, three men are in the center foregroundone kneels at the shore of the lake, one stands and points into the distance with his right hand, and the third crouches near scrubby plants. All three wear hats. The shore is sandy with sparse foliage, and at right a small inlet cuts through it. The sun peeks through hazy clouds and makes a bit of a reflection on the waters of the lake. In the distance a ship of sorts on the water, and in the far distance the outline of mountain ranges.
