Beyond the meadow on the right is a small stand of trees, then a river or lake; rising above the entire scene is a slope to the left and above that dramatic rocky layers of cliffs topped with a pinnacle. In the center and right background a snow-capped mountain ridge stands below a baby blue sky with a few fluffy clouds.

Two tall conifers stand out agains the background cliff, the smaller one aligned directly below the pinnacle. (From a color photograph.)
