Marine scene with three fishing boats at sea. There is a large boat with mast and sails out in the middle foreground and two smaller boats behind it. The boat in the right side has smoke coming from the top, it's possibly a steamboat. The horizon line is at the bottom third of the composition. There is sky with clouds and birds in the top two-thirds of the image.
