Depicts, in a horizontal format, the estuary landscape of the Shrewsbury River near Red Bank, New Jersey. A wooded promontory of the Navesink Highlands, at left, is juxtaposed with areas of calm, flat water, punctuated with reeds, and dotted with the white sails of pleasure craft. The tranquil scenery is bathed in light emanating from a vast expanse of sky.

Reflects Kensett's distinctive mature style featuring reflective expanses of water along the northeastern seaboard set against a brilliant and seemingly limitless sky. The radiant light, and calm stillness of the water exudes divine presence and an enveloping mood of reverie, offering a contemplative and spiritually imbued interpretation of American scenery akin to that described by the American Transcendentalist writers, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau.
