Under cloudy, restless daylight sky mountains are seen in rearground; autumnal scene with birch trees to right, low slope to left and lightly traveled path in center, small figures placed in center. The landscape combines bucolic sentiment with foreground detailed realism and design derived from inherent components of the scenery.
